This is an old revision of the document!
This is not another polemic about the flaws of theories like string theory and related topics like the multiverse. There are already several good books on this topic. Moreover, our goal here is not to promote some crackpot theory of everything.
We want to highlight some opinions that are almost never discussed - at least not in public. In private discussion you often hear statements similar to those made here. However, almost everybody is too afraid to say these things in public.
We hope that this page is a useful reference for anyone dissatisfied with how physics is done nowadays. Especially we hope that many students of physics realize through this page that there are alternatives. In addition, most importantly we want to send a message to all like-minded people out there:
You are not alone!
