The mass of the earth and other planets create gravity, we have enough energy such as rocket technology to escape it’s pull. In 1783, British scientist John Michell came up with an idea of a “dark star” which had enough gravity that even light couldn’t escape. Einstein came up theory about gravity not being a force at all, but rather a “bending” of space and time.
This inference being drawn here are about black holes, which are a real phenomena. It’s here where secular scientists are letting their imaginations run wild. No, not about black holes, but what has become known as the multiverse theory.
Within a black hole there is a point where it is believed that physical laws cease to exist. This is known as “singularity.” The limitations of modern science says it’s unable to predict what will happen next because the theory of relativity cannot determine what effect singularity will have on an object, forming an uncertainty in our universe. This uncertainty has been used for a lot of imagination such as describing it as some kind of portal.
The focus surrounding the imagination is Multiverse theory. The term “theory” is being used loosely here, it’s really an hypothesis. This theory states an existence of other Universes which have their own set of physical laws. Phys.org states it this way…
“A definitive answer is impossible, since we have no way of directly studying other universes. But cosmologists speculate that a multitude of other universes exist, each with its own laws of physics. Recently physicists at MIT have shown that in theory, alternate universes could be quite congenial to life, even if their physical laws are very different from our own.”
“In work recently featured in a cover story in Scientific American, MIT physics professor Robert Jaffe, former MIT postdoc, Alejandro Jenkins, and recent MIT graduate Itamar Kimchi showed that universes quite different from ours still have elements similar to carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen, and could therefore evolve life forms quite similar to us. Even when the masses of the elementary particles are dramatically altered, life may find a way.”
While black holes provide an observable confirmation of Einstein’s theory of general relativity, Multi-universe theory is not testable nor is it able to be confirmed. The big bang theory can be more easily explained by another Universe supplying the goods for it to happen but wouldn’t explain how the first Universe began. Because as we know, something cannot be created out of nothing within the physical laws which is not how the big bang theory or Multi-Universe theory currently works.
So how does Multi-Universe theory explanations any different than flying sheep or a giant snake that is able to create fire from it’s breath. Science fiction characters no doubt. Don’t tell me guys like physicist Alan Guth are acting scientifically because they are employing mathematics and laws of known physical quantities. One could also do that too with aerodynamics of flying sheep or energy snakes create through fire.
This may be fashionable but it’s not practicing real science. This is not to say one cannot be curious of the unknown such as the low entropy state of our universe or considering the state of the Universe if things were not finely tuned! We must also consider how privileged and blessed we are to enjoy life in such a world and universe!
