Wow - this is exactly the kind of answer I wanted. Thanks.

@SergeiAkbarov I am a Stack Exchange developer, not a mod, but I do have mod powers. The comments were removed by a community moderator. I do not know explicitly why he did that.

Sorry about the ninja change. I simply rectified the tone.

comment Is the Mendeleev table explained in quantum mechanics?
I am not the one asserting that statement. I am asserting that whomever says is doable, should provide proof - so basically I am agreeing with you. I don't expect you to agree that it's doable without proof. I am asserting that Lubos needs to provide proof that it's doable before asserting what he says. While I can speculate that it's very likely that QM can explain away chemistry eventually, it clearly doesn't do that if the calculations are unfeasible.

I don't understand your comment. I am not saying its done. I agree its doable in principle, but it's not done afaik. The calculations are still too complex.

comment What experiment would disprove string theory?
@dimension10 It's a very good approximation, but it's qualitatively completely wrong. Gravity does not work at a distance.

comment What experiment would disprove string theory?
Honestly, more of a few of these points are completely irrelevant to the question, because they don't apply to string theory as an extension of currently proven theories. The question wants to know something specific about ST. I do concur on some of your other points though. The second part of the answer is just your (wrong) opinion. Newtonian gravity was hard to disprove for a long time (much longer than GR or ST), yet it was wrong. So "hard to disprove" doesn't tell us anything about correctness.
