Quote of the day: "“If you don’t want God, you’d better have a multiverse.”

“If you don’t want God, you’d better have a multiverse.” -- Bernard Carr

With the sheer improbability of the fine-tuning of the universe for life, the multiverse is the only game in cosmic-town.

Great quote! I view the multiverse theory as the Official Atheist Concession Speech. If that's all they got they are finished.

It's a tough time to be an atheist -- big bang, fine-tuning, biological information, front-loading, self-assembly, -- oh, the humanity!

"... nothing intellectually compelling or challenging.. bald assertions coupled to superstition... woefully pathetic"
