After explaining the quantum theory behind the idea, Siegel gives three possibilities of how infinite universes could be a reality. If it is, he says, “everything that was ever possible happened somewhere.”
“Somewhere, the Nazis won World War II; somewhere, Hillary Clinton is president; somewhere, humans have driven themselves to extinction; somewhere, we’ve achieved world peace.”
And somewhere, there was a God who designed and created a particular universe. Maybe this is that universe!
I am astonished at how these scientists can bandy about “infinity” as they do, positing an infinite number of infinities, since each quantum reaction–and how many of those are there?–creates a new universe. And yet I’m sure that they would not allow for a single infinite God who holds together all contingent events.
“But there is no evidence for a God!” they will say. But there is certainly no evidence for infinite universes, nor is such evidence even theoretically possible, since we can only observe our own universe. This theory is a deductive philosophical construction based on mathematical projections. But it’s hard to see how it is qualitatively superior than philosophical metaphysics or theological speculation.
