Hi,I'm new here, a passionate christian and lay philosopher. I have a question about the 'multiverse' or 'many world theories' after watching a video interview with McGrath, Ward and Lennox. I understand that the 'multiverse' theory isn't inconsistent with a theistic worldview (God could've created them).But, if there is a multiverse and our universe is the one which has the conditions for carbon based life, wouldn't it follow our universe therefore exists necessarily?
Surely thats a very difficult position to argue; that our universe including us, exist necessarily??? I'm not sure if I've explained myself properly.
As i understand it, the multiverse explanation is needed to give the conclusion of our universe is suitable for life. Isn't multiverse theory which results in no life in any universe is self defeating because it doesn't provide the explanation it was created for??? Doesn't multiverse theory lead to an inescapable necessity?
Sorry if I'm a bit muddled. If someone could point me to some resources or answers already on this topic I would appreciate it.
