To be technical, it's the Many Worlds Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics, because you can have infinite dimensions in a single universe/reality since a dimension is just a parametric ordinate in a system.

Anyway, theoretically at least, MWI is system in which any probabilistic event which can potentially occur does thus creating an infinite number of separate divergent world-tracks. So if the probability of God can exist, then logically he must in some world-track. That doesn't mean he can exist though, as many of the attributes ascribed to him, lie outside the realm of reasonable probability as they would permit him to violate the fundamental rules of the universe. That said, if it were possible to violate those rules, then it is probable that reality itself would break down due to those manipulations of the cosmic rules, ultimately resulting in the destruction of all realities, as all realities would have to be subject to the same core mechanics. This doesn't preclude certain interactions, so long as those interactions remain self consistent within each otherwise closed system.

That's very thought provoking. Well, we know sentient beings can exist. Perhaps if there can be multiple dimensions then perhaps there are multidimensional beings who can exist in all simaltsneously?

I don't know. I'm a bit of an agnostic myself, buit I'm pretty sympathetic with those who believe in God because i would like that there be one so, i want it to be true.

Its still great to discuss these things.

If the multiverse exists, I have more important questions. Does each universe have a god? Is there a god for the multiverse? Are there universes with gods that control things other than blind chance? Do they all have the same wants and expectations for their sentient beings?

It would nice to live in a universe where we don't have to rely on speculation.

You DON'T have to rely on speculation. But in order to have a relationship with God, you must FORSAKE your sin and accept God's ultimate sacrifice.

I'm curious, how many sins are there? I know, I've inadvertently committed a few, but I'm curious how many I could do without.

Not sure. The multiverse theory is interesting and seems to mean anything is possible.

[–] Corpsedusk 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

In one of those worlds could a God and an afterlife exist?

Absolutely. If we assume that we live in a multiverse of infinite individual universes, each one having its own laws of physics, biology, cosmology, etc, then there is no reason to believe that there is not a multitude of universes in which a God and an afterlife exist.

There is also no reason not to believe that there is a multitude of universes in which many gods exist, in a fashion similar to ancient pagan pantheons.

Of course, that also means there is no reason not to believe that there is a multitude of universes in which no gods exist.

As for whether or not I fancy myself a scientist, that would depend on your definition of scientist.

That makes absolutely no sense. There cannot be creation without a creator.

[–] Corpsedusk 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

You're begging the question, though, by assuming a universe has to be created, in the same way a painting has to be painted.

In fact, it is more rational to believe that a universe can appear and develop through simple natural properties of the multiverse, in the same way that life on Earth originated from and evolves through simple natural properties of our individual universe, and in the same way that individual organisms are born, grow, and reproduce through the simple natural properties of biology. Wouldn't you agree?

Do I fancy myself a scientist because I'm an atheist?

That's like calling myself a chef because I cooked dinner. I didn't go to school for the culinary arts. I follow recipes found online so that makes me a cook not a chef.

I read about science stuff and have a grasp on some big theories and concepts but I'm no scientist,

Read about the multidimensional theory.

Science destroys teleology, aka the concept of purpose. Regardless of the number of plausible universal dimensions,the question wouldn't be answered. Ghosts and similar phenomena, if detected, would still be related to Physics.

Nope, im extremely irrational and my gut instinct is tied to my moral compass.

First question:

Yes. In fact I am a retired scientist.

Second question:

Infinite dimensions is not falsifiable. In order to be proper science, it must be falsifiable. This is not. You can't prove that infinite dimensions don't exist, in other words.
