Chesterton was right when he said, “When people stop believing in God, they don’t believe in nothing — they believe in anything.”
This news article from howstuffworks.com about where our best and brightest minds of science are leading us proves Chesterton’s thought.
In 1954, a young Princeton University doctoral candidate named Hugh Everett III came up with a radical idea: That there exist parallel universes, exactly like our universe. These universes are all related to ours; indeed, they branch off from ours, and our universe is branched off of others. Within these parallel universes, our wars have had different outcomes than the ones we know. Species that are extinct in our universe have evolved and adapted in others. In other universes, we humans may have become extinct…But lately, Everett’s Many-Worlds theory has been getting some serious attention.
Now mind you, to these scientists, we Christians are the crazy ones. They sit around and make fun of the Jesus Freaks while they secretly wonder if they have more manageable hair in a parallel universe or if they could transport themselves maybe they could watch a new Battlestar Galactica before all their friends.
