Would god create our universe through multiverse?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Modern science reveals that our universe is fine-tuned for life. Many fundamental constants and conditions in our nature fall into very narrow life-allowing ranges. This fine-tuning phenomenon can be addressed by two major hypotheses: the God hypothesis, and the multiverse hypothesis. In this article, I show that recent scientific observations do not favor the multiverse hypothesis. Also, I argue that an omnipotent, omniscient and perfectly good God would not create our fine-tuned universe through the multiverse scenario. Therefore, these two specific hypotheses are incompatible with each other. Copyright © 2015 Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences.
