According to the quantum physics,string theory scientists claim that we are living in a holographic universe.Heisenbergs uncertainity principle and dual nature of light gives a great hint to prove this concept

I accept.
In order to fulfill the BoP pro must show that we are indeed, or at the very least, most probably living in a holographic universe. I don't think he can do this because his argument hinges on string theory, which is probably the most speculative theory in modern physics. It has been criticized for not offering strong predictions.
All I must do is negate pro's arguments but I will also provide arguments for the universe is not a holigraph.

I look forward to your arguments

Well my opponent FF every round.
I'm really busy, so I will just offer a few thoughts.

The holographic principle states:" the description of a volume of space can be thought of as encoded on a boundary to the region—preferably a light-like boundary like a gravitational horizon. "

Well the first problem is measurement. The cosmological horizon is always changing.

The holographic principle solves the blackhole information paradox, but some answers to the EFE allow greater entropy than a blackhole. This conflicts with the holographic principle.

The math doesn't work in this universe. There are 2 often cited papers to lend credibility to the idea(Hyakutake ). One even confirms the Madecen conjecture. This would be really cool, but the papers discuss a theoritical universe, very differen't from our own.

The whole principle is derived from string theory, but string theory has a lot of problems.
It requires ridiculous energy levels to produce anything meaningful.
It makes a lot of predicitions.
The calculations are bound to be inaccurate, because one has to select a background before hand.
