‘Doctor Strange’ perpetuates the multiverse theory as scientists take this on ‘faith’

“Intelligent design, however, is an answer to fine-tuning that does not appeal to most scientists,” Lightman says. “The multiverse offers another explanation. If there are countless different universes with different properties—for example, some with nuclear forces much stronger than in our universe and some with nuclear forces much weaker—then some of those universes will allow the emergence of life and some will not. Some of those universes will be dead, lifeless hulks of matter and energy, and others will permit the emergence of cells, plants and animals, minds. From the huge range of possible universes predicted by the theories, the fraction of universes with life is undoubtedly small. But that doesn’t matter. We live in one of the universes that permits life because otherwise we wouldn’t be here to ask the question.”

Steven Weinberg says: “Over many centuries science has weakened the hold of religion, not by disproving the existence of God but by invalidating arguments for God based on what we observe in the natural world. The multiverse idea offers an explanation of why we find ourselves in a universe favorable to life that does not rely on the benevolence of a creator, and so if correct will leave still less support for religion.”

From Dark Energy to String Theory, the countless efforts by scientists to explain the universe without God is laughable.

“Not only must we accept that basic properties of our universe are accidental and uncalculable. In addition, we must believe in the existence of many other universes. But we have no conceivable way of observing these other universes and cannot prove their existence. Thus, to explain what we see in the world and in our mental deductions, we must believe in what we cannot prove,” Lightman concludes as he points to the faith scientists have to have to keep perpetuating the multiverse nonsense.

“Theologians are accustomed to taking some beliefs on faith. Scientists are not. All we can do is hope that the same theories that predict the multiverse also produce many other predictions that we can test here in our own universe. But the other universes themselves will almost certainly remain a conjecture.”

“We had a lot more confidence in our intuition before the discovery of dark energy and the multiverse idea,” says Alan Guth. “There will still be a lot for us to understand, but we will miss out on the fun of figuring everything out from first principles.”

Where do these infinite universes come from? Some giant universe creating machine?

Why would these infinite universes keeping coming?
