I think science will come to a dead end or for maybe every question answered another question arises. So we find out we live in 3 dimensions of a larger 11 dimension universe. How could we ever explain why there are 11 dimensions and not some other odd number? The laws of physics in our 3 dimensions don't apply to the other dimensions. So our theory of everything will not be a theory of everything, it will be a theory of most things up until a certain point, then who knows?
I'm sure theorical physicists could/can explain M-theory or String theory up to a point but then how can they explain what makes up strings and what laws governs them?

I think you underestimate mathematicians and physicists.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Yes. If we ask sensible questions, Mathematics and Science can provide quality answers to anything.

What would be sensible questions? Many phenomena in quantum physics are counter intuitive.
