What’s a Greater Leap of Faith: God or the Multiverse?

I don’t understand how any serious scientist can buy into the Multiverse theory. Energy cannot be created. How can they believe in an infinite number of energy-rich universes when they can’t explain where the energy in OUR universe came from?

As for the idea that my choice to go to one college rather than another or marry one man rather than another somehow spawned a NEW UNIVERSE is beyond ridiculous. I admit that I enjoy sci fi episodes based on the idea, but only because I like watching actors play their evil twins. I’m not dumb enough to think they’re anything but FICTION.

  1. Not just the energy, but all the matter in the universe must be spontaneously created, not only by hundreds of billions of decisions by billions of people, but what about lesser beings? Is there a universe where your dog decides to scratch himself rather than lick? To chase a squirrel and catch it in one universe, while simultaneously creating another where it didn’t? Did the squirrel decide to zig left in one and right in another?
    Multiverse may make for some interesting fiction, but it is a more preposterous theory than a “flat earth”.

      • I’ve been meaning to write about this for some time, but I just thought of something new this AM. In every scenario of some alternate universe, there is some alternate version of YOU. But, if universes spring randomly into being on the basis of someone’s choice, how about an alternate universe where you don’t even exist, because your father didn’t choose/have sex with/marry your mother? Your grandfather didn’t choose your grandmother, your great grandfather didn’t marry your great grandmother, etc, etc.
        Your father never met your mom but hooked up with Stormy Daniels instead, and your earliest childhood memory is mama dancing on a pole?
        It is the ultimate conceit that somehow every universe is obligated to produce you!

          LOL I’ve often thought that too. I can think of only one sci fi episode where someone in the main cast didn’t exist at all in the alternate universe.

          Kinda reminds me of something I read about Shirley MacLaine’s “past life” visions. I never wasted my time on them, so this is vaguely remembered and at least second, if not third, hand. Something about how she waxed poetic about the democratic society of elephants … while riding on one, because she was their princess.
