Do scientists require religous
Channel 4 to the rescue again which a program entitled "What
we still don't know". An interesting point raised on
there related to whether there are 1 or more universes?
If there is 1 universe then how come this one is so well
tuned with the laws of physics that allow the universe to
exist. For example, gravity is exactly the right strength
to allow atoms to join, but not be crushed. Many think there
must be something that requires so-called faith, ie: assumption
that there is something you'll never see.
On the other hand there's the chance of multiverses (many
universes) so it happens that with all the variations in laws
of physics, this one was tuned correctly to let atoms to join
and everything else to work. As pointed out however this assumption
is pretty impossible to prove. Therefore do you need to have
the same type of faith to go with the idea...?
I'd guess we'll just have to watch this space...
Back to mad theories....
