Bottom line is that even if Lubos Motl were correct that there is a fundamental flaw in the Lisi-Tony Smith approach, nevertheless, that does not make them "crackpots" it would only make them "wrong" which is better than any paper Lubos ever probably published which falls under the "not even wrong" category. At least Tony and Lisi make some contact with real data - it may be wrong like the platonic solids explanation of the motion of the planets but it is still real physics, though possibly wrong and mathematically inconsistent. I would like to see Lubos prove that his own brand of string theory has no mathematical inconsistencies. QED is not mathematically consisten,t but it is very useful nevertheless. Again arrogant mathematicians mucking up good physics.
