Some Food for Thought:

Does foundational quantum physics make sense? It works! But...? Hmm.

On the Importance of the Scientific Method:

FYI: 'When Physics Became a Gigolo: Superprofits For Supergravity.'
(It's a story which is interesting and controversial too. But it is also quite relevant. Please ponder the importance of the scientific method.),

Hmm. Sometimes it takes time and advances in technology for experiment to 'catch up' to theory, or sometimes it takes time for advances/formulation of a theory to 'catch up' to experiment.

Here's a rule of thumb quote:

"Physical theory without experiment is empty. Experiment without theory is blind." -- Prof. Heinz Pagels.

Here's a wonderful example of the scientific method in practice:

Hmm. Some Food for Thought:

Worse, they don’t seem to want to understand it.' by Prof. S. Carroll,
