RE: many universes?
Hmmm, but infinity has to be all-encompassing.
So while there might be infinite points between 0 and 1, it's not infinity unless it includes every point between
-infinity and +infinity. Tricky debate.

RE: many universes?
it's like saying: there are infinite shades or grey between white and black. But there's no yellow at all.
So you can have every shade of the spectrum or ,every shade of a single colour.
I guess you could say there is 2 types of infinity, macro and micro. I think if we lived in a multi-verse,
it was have to a macro version of infinity all-encompassing every possibility.

The point is that there can be an infinite number of things within a limited scope so the argument that an infinite number of universe automatically implies that a god must exist somewhere is wrong. It doesn't mean that nothing that could be a god could possibly exist either so it offers no support for either conjecture.

You'd have to show that it is actually possible for a god to exist first. Not knowing any reason something is impossible is insufficient grounds to conclude that it is possible.

What justification do you have for that conclusion?

I don't have any, I don't know how I could have.

Then it might make a good basis for a sci-fi story but there's no good reason to believe it.

If that's the case, then shouldn't there be a universe where God exists?

An infinite multiverse does not itself have any implications regarding the existence of a god.

Wrong.

There are more points between 0 and 1 than the number of integers.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

RE: many universes?
Wouldn't an infinite multiverse have infinite implications?
