Dark times at the multiversity (2)

The Beeb continues its wide-eyed fascination with junk science here:-

As usual, it classifies these multiverse games as science in spite of having to admit:-

This "multiverse" idea is popular in modern physics, but experimental tests have been hard to come by.

Popular? I bet it is. Experimental testing defines what science is - until then it is metaphysical speculation. Nothing wrong with metaphysical speculations because that's where theories come from, but these distinctions are important. However, it gets worse:-

Dr Peiris said that even if these bubble universes were confirmed, we could never learn anything further about them.

So what is the word 'confirmed' supposed to mean here? Not much would probably be a good guess.

The Multiverse Bubbles prove that the Universe is electromagnetic and not gravitational big-bang dark matter cosmology. See my story with photos and scientific evidence at

Multiverse Bubbles is a theory it can't prove anything. Your blog is interesting though - I'll bookmark it.
