NOTE FROM FRED BORTZ: Somehow, this posting got moved into my blog when scienceblog.com changed platforms. It was posted by a blogger who called himself “Main Fragger.” Main Fragger does not understand physics well, though s/he reads a lot and wants to learn. But THIS IS NOT MY POSTING.
If you want to know my view of parallel universes, start with my review of The Grand Design by Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow and follow links from there.
A quick question for a lazy Saturday afternoon. This article says mathematicians have found strong evidence that parallel universes exist, in which all possible outcomes coexist in separate universes. ” A motorist who has a near miss, for instance, might feel relieved at his lucky escape. But in a parallel universe, another version of the same driver will have been killed. Yet another universe will see the motorist recover after treatment in hospital. The number of alternative scenarios is endless.”
At the risk of posing a “Can God create a stone so heavy even He can’t lift it?” type question, does this also mean that universes exist in which this same research was conducted and found to conclusively show that parallel universes do not exist? I’m hoping the Fred Bortz’s of the world will chime in.
