This had been guessed at years ago in DC Comics when Superman would try to go into the past and change things, only to find that he went into a parallel universe. The DC editors even maintained that in an infinite universe, there would be a few with a REAL Superman where their stories actually happened. The 50's through '80's Superman was earth-1, the golden age Saperman was on earth-2. We live on earth-prime. More earths were made for Captain Marvel, Quality comics heroes and various rogue superheroes.

There was also a scifi short story where people found out about this and started killing themselves because somewhere else another version of them did not make the same stupid mistakes.

Frankly, there are severe metaphysical problems with this approach. Stanley Jaki deals with this in "Is there a multiverse?" I am sure there are better treatises that show the theory to be absurd.

He left an an important piece. These infinite universes are expanding and eventually will collide.

And no one knows what will happen then.

Do you have a link for Jaki's article?

Here are some archiv.org links to articles about the multiverse:

Something that I have never heard scientists discuss in regards to infinite multiverses:

With infinite multiverses there is no such thing as morality.

If every possible universe exists then there are an infinite number of universes in which I am a saint and an infinite number of universes in which I am an axe murderer.

Even if at some level God has decided that axe murdering is a bad thing, if He has created a universe in which infinite copies of each person he created are axe murderers then it doesn't say much for the proscription against axe murdering.

It would be like the enforcement of speeding laws where everyone is pretty much allowed to speed most of the time and are only nabbed when they are speeding excessively or the odd occasion when the officers are overly zealous.

Or like the current "enforcement" of our immigration laws.

Well, I hope that the other bannies are as fortunate as I have been in being an American.

Cool theory, but when are the creationists going to show up?

LOL, that's one potential outcome, but as a layman I'd have to say that there are probably an infinite amount of outcomes.

I mean, it has to be possible that when two of the universes collide, American Idol is on every channel all day long.
