Dr. Michio Kaku on multiverses

August 23, 2009

First of all, I love Dr. Kaku.  I could listen to him for hours.  Secondly, it’s amazing how readily his statement about multiverses, multi-genesis, and even the notion of a priesthood adherent to natural law fits so well with LDS doctrine.

    very cool Fan…Yes, it make sense to me and is a nice beginning explanation of the concept of creation and idea that all matter, all creation, has always been. I like the black hole/white hole explanation also. Kinda like an aerator on the sink, except once it sucks it up and destroys it, it would then go down the drain and be recreated into something on the other side…a white whole! Also liked the idea of the light separation. Sounded a lot like the veil! very cool!

    Agreed, but one of the major things I found to be interesting is how well it correlates to multiple creations, i.e., other spirits becoming gods and creating universes, but all under the greater omniverse, or as Kaku likens it, nirvana.

    I hate it when physicists on television are kept asking about religion influence over their teories or discoveries, or especially about influence of their discoveries over religion. Carl Sagan had this problem, Stephen Hawking has it, and Kaku here is no exception (even though its bbc, and not USA’s pbs) and they always have to come up with clever explenations and anegdotes so they could semi-explain to this stupid host how stupid he is.

    So they are thinking extensively about possible religion questions and answers, wasting valuable time which could be consumed on doing something more important. And then, wasting some more time while answering them during tv shows or interviews, except saying something we could actually use.

    I think they keep asking those questions be cause of fear, that THEY come up with those wacko ideas without even thinking about current religion and beliefs (prefferably mine), be cause if THEY would do that, they would definetly rule out possibility of multiverses/higgs bouzon/extraterrestial life/aeroplane/bike/evolution/heliocentrism/list goes on.

    I’m not saying that god’s existence is proven wrong already be cause of those discoveries, be cause its not and it cannot be proven, and its definitely not the other way round too (evolution is a fact, right?). What church is trying to do (and fail all the time, again and again) is too deny discovery, and then if its finally proven, they move to another one.

    Obviously, history is not tracking those cases when church denied some science theory which in the end it was wrong, but it doesnt matter be cause they never decide about whats wrong or whats right. Scientists do that by themself. Only thing that church does is denying it or approving (of course when there is no other option, like “okay, don’t talk about it, shut up!” option).

    Wow, mission complete, instead of writing about this exciting theory and some important scientific points this lovable Dr. made, i wrote longish comment about… religion.

    Yes, a longish comment that doesn’t seem to actually say too much.

    I get it. You hate organized religion.

    You’re so open-minded, and quite the original thinker.

    Now back to reality.

    I find it interesting that you rail on organized religion for their supposed opposition to discovery, and then suggest it improper for Kaku or any other scientist to attempt, or be asked, to discover a bridge between science and religion. I see nothing to adequately suggest that the two are mutually exclusive, and apparently, neither does Kaku.
