PhysicistRob Sheldon writes to draw our attention to Sean Carroll’s TED talk.
Carroll, a recent convert to the multiverse, guest authored a piece for us here at Uncommon Descent: “No God Needed” CalTech physicist responds to Uncommon Descent’s questions.
Notice how he starts with the problem (he attributes to Boltzmann) that the universe is a very special place that cannot be explained by a random event. Fascinating to watch him circle around the issue of design without ever mentioning it.
number of stars in Milky Way galaxy = 100 billion
number of galaxies in observable universe = 100 billion
Age of universe = 100 billion (in dog years)
Carroll blogs at Cosmic Variance.
