Skip to comments.Why Some Scientists Embrace the 'Multiverse'
Posted on 06/18/2013 1:30:53 AM PDT by expat1000
Last week, in Nice, France, I was privileged to participate, along with 30 scholars, mostly scientists and mathematicians, in a conference on the question of whether the universe was designed, or at least fine-tuned, to make life, especially intelligent life. Participants from Yale, Princeton, Harvard, Berkeley and Columbia among other American and European universities included believers in G0D, agonistics and atheists.

Pardon for the OT, but is the G0D (with an inserted zero) rendering a, for lack of a better term, “kosher” one? I can’t recall having seen it expressed that way previously.
I didn’t notice that - never saw that before and typically we write G-d but I guess it will serve!
I believe Prager is Jewish I could be wrong that might explain the “0”
But it cold be a subtle political joke making fun of those who worship Zerobama
>>I believe Prager is Jewish I could be wrong that might explain the 0.
Correct, but typically G-d, not G0d, is used - at least in my experience.
If there is an infinity of universe’s, could somebody please tell me how to find the bridge to the one where there is no marxism, no collectivism, no islam, no PC, no multiculturalism, and no liberals (in the modern sense).
BTW, I’m seeing some inappropriate ads on the site. I don’t think it’s just me, but I suppose it’s possible. The situation has been reported. The site webmaster was not aware of it and is looking into it.
If you don’t see them, then just ignore this.
"This causes problems. No matter how many times I write "G-d", the spell-check on the computer has no idea what I mean. "G-d" is not in its dictionary, and it won't accept it as an addition to the dictionary. So the computer comes up with all types of suggested corrections: Go, Do, G'day. And often half the name ends up on a new line: G-
I wonder if G0D would be accepted as an autocorrect option in spell-check?
Fascinating article, btw. Those do seem to be on the order of Schrödinger's cat variety odds.

I’ll buy a ticket too to a ‘verse where black is black, white is white, and you font have to guess what the truth is.

Actually I skipped through that whole thing about why he uses G0d.
It would not have to be an autocorrect entry, just add it to the dictionary as he apparently did.
BTW, I haven’t the faintest idea what this means: “Schrödinger’s cat variety odds” but have added it to my list of things to explore as time allows.
Not G0d or G-d; but GOD! Anything else is a mockery. If Freepers who are conservatives (I exclude the trolls and RINOs - which probably an oxymoron)can’t get it right, how can we expect others to do so.
If you are offended by the correct spelling - GOD - too bad. Get over it. For the NSA, put that in your data banks under “troublemaker”.
It’s a show of respect by not spelling out his name, typically a Jewish custom, IIRC.
While it may not be a “NTHockey Approved Method,” that doesn’t make it invalid.
I think prize-winning pr*ck Richard Dawkins called this “theory” ridiculous. Even that monstrosity won’t make such a claim. For one thing, there is absolutely ZERO evidence for the multiverse. It’s mainly a theory invented to try and maneuver atheism around troublesome mathematics.
interesting article and must have been an interesting gathering!
Note that the subject matter and conclusions of this esteemed gathering of scientists could be not taught or even discussed in our schools without drawing a lawsuit from the militant a-theists, if it was allowed to discussed at all by intimidated school boards
I didn’t see the name “Richard Dawkins”
they dont want to be found or the isms you mention would be battering down their borders trying to emigrate and contaminate them
Unless someone can provide proof this is just all theoretical nonsense.
I can claim there is an alien civilization living in my ass and claim it’s a theory. Whoopdee doo!
Those are all direct descendants of the religion of Humanism, which began with the lie “you will be as gods, knowing good and evil”.
Unless one of these fantasy universes was exempted from the curse, you won’t find the one you’re looking for.
Dawkins is an evolutionary biologist. Why would his opinion on matters such as this mean anything? There is no “evidence” for a lot of things in the world. Science is about exploring the unknown in an attempt to make it known. So when faced with a question such as this one, many theories are proposed which all work, until some new discovery or new data can refute those theories or add a little more to them.
You can say the same thing for any religion. I know you will respond with the word “faith” which is something created because no one had any proof.
These are working theories, and work is done to disprove these theories.
I don’t see why you are getting your panties in such a twist.
If there's life in there, the democrats will find it.
And register it to vote.
I’m not I simply think it’s ridiculous. Send a probe through a black hole and we’ll see what happens.
>>Unless someone can provide proof this is just all theoretical nonsense.
Sounds exactly like an atheist talking about G0d.
I have no idea what this is about. There was nothing remotely offensive in anything you said.
That’s my point. The scientific community will claim God doesn’t exist for lack of evidence, then declare that there are a zillion universes. They’re hypocrites.I mentioned Dawkins because he seems to have become the go-to guy for the general public on science. I’m well aware this is outside his field of ‘expertise’, but so is God and he never shuts up on that subject.
But there is not a shred of evidence of the existence of these other universes. Nor could there be since contact with another universe is impossible.
There is another where/when only the length of an arm away from our own.
If there is an infinity of universes, could somebody please tell me how to find the bridge to the one where there is no marxism, no collectivism, no islam, no PC, no multiculturalism, and no liberals (in the modern sense).
Or even the one where Sheldon is a clown made of candy. That one might not be too bad either.
Sheldon is the star of the show ...
