There has been only one,so you're in error when you use the term in the plural.
Dark Matter and String Theory. We're back to plural.

String Theory isn't falsifiable.

The thing I like about Quantum Gravity is that aspects of it comport well with Fuller's Synergetics.

It doesn't have the word quantum in it, so has to go.

I really do prefer my physics to have quanta.

....and Gravity?

String Theory produced no testable hypotheses. Quantum Gravity suggests undiscovered particles or fields.

You said it could be implimented with the stroke of a pen. How so? Suddenly dictate all shopping malls to close and cars to be banned? Who would enforce this? And to what extreme?
