1.   A string is the shortest possible entity, but it can be shortened a bit to win the debate

One lost soul claims that he can find a location within the Planck length:

“ Any point on such a world-sheet can be described by two numbers, one specifying
the time and the other the position of the point on the string” (p. 159) [1]

This statement is irrational for at least two reasons. Firstly, as I already said, the Planck length is the shortest line imaginable
or of any use in Mathematical Physics:

“ The characteristic length scale of strings may be estimated by the Planck length of
quantum gravity” [2]

“ 1 Planck unit often represents the largest or smallest value that makes sense given
the current understanding of physical theory… At lengths and times of less than
approximately one Planck unit, quantum theory as presently understood no longer
applies.” [3]

Therefore, it is irrational to attempt to locate points along what is conceptually impossible to divide (Fig. 1).

A second problem with attempting to locate points along a string is that the theorist just finished telling us that there is no up,
down, or sides to a string. How did the ‘dimension’ of time suddenly cut across our Planck length? Is the string now two-
dimensional? Do we need two numbers to specify a point on the string now?

It is the incessant amending of the initial assumptions that converts String Theory to poppycock. But it only gets worse…

2.0   A string can be stretched as necessary to accommodate any theory

A string theorist next tells us that a string is malleable:

“ Strings are stretchable” [4]

“ I began to realize that what was being described here was a string, an elastic string,
like a rubber band, or like a rubber band cut in half. And this rubber band could not
only stretch and contract, but wiggle” [5]

Some mathematicians loop them into hula-hoops:

“ The number of times the string winds around the circle is called the winding
number.” [6]

Others scan the hula-hoop and believe they have built a tunnel:

A closed string looks like a small loop, so its worldsheet will look like a pipe [7]

But then, if the string can stretch, what was the purpose of the original ‘Planck length’ assumption? Where did the extra ‘points’
that add length to the string come from? (I would hope that it didn’t come from the concept ‘energy’.)

So at this juncture, the rational thinker wonders what was the purpose of the Planck length if we are going to stretch it, shrink it,
and chop it into pieces.

More significantly, if the string is the shortest entity conceivable, how can it vibrate? Vibration implies that it is made of parts
that are free to move at will with respect to other parts within the Planck length (Fig. 1). The mathematicians routinely ignore
their initial assumptions. A mathematical physicist is an individual who refuses to work within a scientific regime.
