Is there any more *proof* that multiple universes exist than there is
*proof* there is a god? We understand so little of the universe that we
obviously exist in, it seems a bit premature to believe in multi universes
that conveniently have no way to be proved or disproved. To put forward a
theory without proof is just fine so long as it is defined that way but to
*believe* without any successful tests, sounds suspiciously like religious
belief to me.

I have not been to China but I believe China exists. The size of the
conspiracy of false information that would have to exist if China did not
exist could be possible but very unlikely. The same is not true for multi
universes. The idea might be interesting to some physicists and science
fiction writers but that doesn't mean there is actual evidence that multi
universes exist. Getting the cover of Scientific America is no argument for
or against any theory.
