+ - The String Theory Landscape may not be Science after all

Only the ones that are finely tuned to support possible observers could ever be observed by someone like us, so says the anthropic principle. But despite all the work, publicity and hype that's gone into it, not only have there been no scientific advancements on this front, but this line of thinking is unlikely to ever lead us there, not without some actual science."
