Well, I don't have that level of math skills, but I read a blog that does:


They don't think much of it. 42 comments so far mostly agree.

    But holy crap, if physicists don’t lose all of their scientific
credit by publishing this pure garbage and nothing else for years, can
they lose their credibility at all? Does the institutionalized science
have any checks and balances left? I think that all the people are
being bullied into not criticizing the junk written by other people
who are employees of the academic system, especially if the latter are
politically correct activists. And be sure, some of the authors of
this nonsense are at the top of it.

    This is just bad. I urge all the sane people in Berkeley and other
places to make it very clear to Bousso et al. – and to students and
other colleagues – that they have gone completely crazy.
