Should We Abandon the Multiverse Theory? - Sabine Hossenfelder, Roger Penrose, Michio Kaku

"What is driving the mulitverse theory? Are the multiverse stories only a sticky-plaster solution to the Big Bang theory problem? Leading thinkers Sabine Hossenfelder, Roger Penrose and Michio Kaku debate. 00:00 Introduction 02:22 Michio Kaku | Multiverse theory has now dominating cosmology; it is unavoidable. 06:03 Sabine Hossenfelder | Believing in the multiverse is the logical equivalent to believing in God. 07:57 Roger Penrose | Universes are sequential and so are not independent worlds. 16:36 Theme 1 | Do scientifc theories need to be testable? 28:45 Theme 2 | Are tales of the multiverse solutions to the Big Bang theory in trouble? 42:49 Theme 3 | Will theories of the universe always be bound by untestable elements? Multiverses are everywhere. Or at least the theory is. Everyone from physicists Stephen Hawking and Brian Greene to Marvel superheroes have shown their support for the idea. But critics argue that not only is the multiverse improbable, it is also fantasy and fundamentally unscientific as the theory can never be tested - a requirement that has defined science from its outset. Should we reject the grand claims and leave multiverse theories to the pages of comic books? Are tales of the multiverse really sticking-plaster solutions for Big Bang theory in trouble? Or should we take multiverse theory as seriously as its proponents, and accept that modern science has moved beyond the bounds of experiment and into that of imagination?' from video introduction

The multiverse theory has always at its core been 'Scientism's" effort to dispense with God. The multiverse is a theory yet the Bible has included other dimensions as part of creation since the beginning. Of course now we have narrow minded and bias scientists and researchers who WILL not pursue the obvious with objectivity and see where it goes. The scientific method is not a moral or otherwise high ground. It is flawed by the very people who claim its infallibility. - Andy
