He said it: What’s wrong with the multiverse is the multiverse

"Let the balloons of naturalism drift unaccompanied into their endless night."

The real battle in cosmology today is the war on rationality and orderliness.

From physicist Bruce Gordon, “Balloons on a string,” The Nature of Nature (ISI Books, 2011) p. 585:

The mindless multiverse “solution” to the problem of fine-tuning is, quite literally, a metaphysical non-starter. What the absence of efficient material causality in fundamental physics and cosmology reveals instead is the limit of scientific explanations and the need for a deeper metaphysical understanding of the world’s rationality and orderliness. That explanation has always been, and will forever be, Mind over matter.

When the logical and metaphysical necessity of an efficient cause, the demonstrable absence of a material one, and the realized implication of a universe both contingent and finite in temporal duration, are all conjoined with the fact that we exist in an ordered cosmos the conditions of which are fine-tuned beyond the capacity of any credible mindless process, the scientific evidence points inexorably toward transcendent intelligent agency as the only sufficient cause, and thus the only reasonable explanation.

In short, a clarion call to intellectual honesty and metaphysical accountability reverberates throughout the cosmos: release the strings of nihilism and let the balloons of naturalism drift unaccompanied into their endless night. If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear.

    “For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.”
