The multi-universe theory suggests Intelligent Design!

lincoln_23701_lgThe multi-universe theory is one of science’s latest models for describing reality within the framework of quantum mechanics.

On the quantum level, not only have scientists tried to fathom the mystery of the collapse of the wavefunction—that is, how do all the possible outcomes of quantum indeterminacy (generated by the wavefunction) collapse into a single measurable event, but also, what happens to all those other possibilities after a single actuality is determined?

The first question still remains a big mystery but the second question is in theory, answered by the very recent multi-universe theory (also called “multiverse” or parallel universes theory). I find it strange that this new theory ignores the scientific method in that it cannot be proved or disproved through any experimentation! (Ironically, this is the exact problem natural scientists have with the existence of God—that God cannot be proven or disproven.)

In this new theory, all the quantum possibilities become actualities by creating new worlds with different histories. In one world Abraham Lincoln is shot and assassinated (like ours) but in other, equally real worlds, he lives. Likewise, in yet another world, Jesus is embraced by all and not crucified.

On pondering this theory it also seems strange to me that if fundamental reality is a blind throw of the dice (as quantum theory currently suggests), why does each throw lead to a world that makes some causal sense within its own framework? Each world scenario seems to be arranged into a series of relationships with internally consistent order. That means each possible world consists of a coordinated design. (The human mind cannot even think of a world without successive and simultaneous coherence, or without intelligent structure—because each world has to lawfully sustain itself.)

A single world consists of a myriad of complex processes forming a unified and coherent realm. The multi-universe theory suggests that numerous worlds of great complexity are all the accidental outcomes of a fundamental process consisting of pure uncertainty. How does each throw of the dice lead to a coherent outcome? How can order be the result of mindlessness—over and over again?

I find such a scenario more mentally challenging than embracing a metaphysical Creator-God. I am not a fan of the “multiverse” theory but am still amused by what it suggests. I believe fresh new geometrical principles and trajectories have to be acknowledged and applied to the quantum world. I addressed these new geometries in my award-winning book Proving God.
