It's on the other side of the Einstein-Rosen-Podolsky bridge.

Along with Dr. Sam Beckett and his holographic pal Al.

Universe = Uni (one), everything

Perhaps beyond our detectable limits lie other areas that can also be traced to a singularity, but if so they are but a subset of the thing known as the universe.

It is like saying, "this is everything...except for that over there". Then it isn't everything now is it?

End mini-rant, please carry on.

I totally agree! That's why I always use "reality" instead. I'm hoping it will catch on Tongue

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

RE: many universes?
There's really only three universes...

I'm in all three.

In one, I get laid more than Wilt Chamberlain....

in another, I get less nookie than Pee Wee Herman.....

And in yet another, I'm a serial killer who wrecks vengeance on people who mock my sexual prowess.....

The question you need to ask - is what universe you're in?????

Big Grin

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

The problem with infinite multi-verse thing is....
If that's the case, then shouldn't there be a universe where God exists?

Why? An infinite number of universes doesn't mean every conceivable thing must exist somewhere.

It doesn't? Isn't that what infinite possibilities means?

There are an infinite number of points between 0 and 1; if every point equated to a universe you'd have an infinite multiverse and none would be #2.
