Limits of Science

. . The Scientific Method requires falsifiability of a hypothesis, but recent "theories" in Physics are introducing concepts outside that requirement.  On the large scale physicists talk about multi-verses that can't be observed.  In the smallest scale physicists argue multi-dimensional string theory which also can't be validated through experiment.  Why? Because that is where the mathematical formulation of the theory of everything seem to be heading.
. . The problem is human inability to visualize the infinite -- both the infinitely large dimension of the universe in which humanity resides and the infinitely small dimensions that goes on immeasurably past sub-atomic particles.
. . Science seems to be on a course to merge with religion which accepts based on faith alone and does not require falsifiability.
