  What are the chances string theory is more probably the correct description of nature than loop qauntum gravity?

+ 0 like - 0 dislike

I mean because of Gauge\gravity correspondances and T'thooft discovery that the dynamics of large N gauge theories is dual to string theory and so there is a relation between Nonabelian gauge theories and Superstring theory in a variety of backgrounds but as far as this scenario does not exist for loop quantum gravity

Welcome here Quarkgluon and thanks for asking. However, I guess the questions needs some rewording as I don't think than anyone say that _the probability that String Theory is right is $p_1$ and - that Loop Quantum Gravity - $p_2$...

I'd go further and point to the FAQ: You should only ask practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face. Chatty, open-ended questions diminish the usefulness of our site and push other questions off the front page.

I agree with Moshe. I don't want to see a rehash of the string wars here.
