While I personally admire work on string theory and the multiverse, particularly that accomplished by Stanford's Len Susskind, it has to be admitted that string theory cannot reproduce any of the outcomes known to be true in our actual universe without elaborate manipulations of key variables. Worse yet, it offers no testable unique predictions. So while it's mathematically entertaining, it may well be a complete dead-end.
