Parallel Worlds Exist And Will Soon Be Testable, Expert Says

By: Dick Pelletier

Is there another you reading this article at this exact moment in a parallel universe? Dr. Brian Greene, author of The Hidden Reality: Parallel Universes and the Deep Laws of the Cosmos, believes that this freakish quirk of nature may exist; and he discusses its amazing possibilities in this 3-minute TV interview.

A growing number of cosmologists agree with Greene that we are but one of many universes and at least one of these other worlds lies close to ours, maybe only a millimeter away. We can’t see this world, because it exists in a type of space different from the four dimensions of our everyday reality.

Good grief. How much grant money is going to this junk?

I'll take a country run by a dumbass race hustler over one run by an evil marxist any day. It's the difference between America becoming Detroit or becoming the Soviet Union. Liberal stupidity we can fix.

Why wouldn’t they wait until they were done testing before announcing that parallel worlds exist?

Of course, they could be time travelers.

Experiments to test this theory will include a roof cap structured exactly like the kind of telemetry tracker that NASA uses to identify dead pulsars in deep space, using cold riveted girders with cores of pure selenium. And a lot of marshmallows.

This is ultimately an attempt to explain why macroevolution is impossible in “our” universe. If there are billions of universes, each with billions of galaxies, then they think that increases the likelihood that macroevolution “must’ve” occurred somewhere.

“Will soon be testable” isn’t the same as “is testable.”

This topic is discussed in “the community” with a straight face - with no more evidence than a “could be”.

And yet, posit the existence of an a (completely plausible) Creator - and you’re a crackpot...

the thing is,
if there are millions of parallel universes then..
a Creator is even more necessary/likely

the more complexly ordered the reality, the more it had to have an intelligent creator

If it were anyone but Brian Greene, I would say it was just blowing smoke.

If he says it, it at least has some sound science behind it.

Unlike 99% of the Global Warmers, he is at least honest.

With Greene’s name on it, there must be something there.

Don't think about it. Just realize that everything you have ever learned in this life/universe has been wrong.

Complete rubbish. This is not science.

“gravity leaking from an invisible universe” shows that this is written by someone who knows nothing about anything.

Multiverse. Parallel universes. Popping in and out of existence randomly. This is the kind of things that government grants are made out of. It is not science, and it is not “testable.”

BTW, all this is to “prove” that we are just a random set of fluctuations without any particular order or purpose.

Amazingly, socialism works in this alternate universe.

However, people must hold onto the earth to keep from drifting into outer space, since the force of gravity is repellant rather than attractive.
