Multiverseand Understanding of GodThe theoretical physicist Max Tegmark has written somestimulatingpapers on the idea that the implications of quantum mechanics and alsothe assumption that space is infinite both lead to a view of creationas a multiverse, in which all possibilities are realised. What doesthis imply for our understanding of God and indeed for arguments aboutHis existence? Presumably if all logical possibilities are realisedthen at least one cosmos exists in which God either comes into being oris present from 'the beginning'. And if there is an infinite array ofuniverses, in whatever sense we understand this, then an infinitenumber will 'contain' God. However, presumably the same argument wouldlead to the reality of an infinite number of universes that do /not/... Multiverse ideas seem to be gaining ground, so what has thetheological response been?
