One of the many creative ways April Fool’s Day can be celebrated: Promoting the multiverse
|April 1, 2012||Posted by News under Multiverse, News|
The media and blogosphere today are full of April Fool’s Day jokes of various degrees of funniness. Then there’s the Los Angeles Times, which used the date to publish a piece by Lawrence Krauss entitled A Universe Without Purpose. It promotes the argument that the multiverse is science’s answer to religion, with in this case backing coming even from the LHC [Large Hadron Collider] …
Actually, the Collider has been about as useful for the purpose as a three-legged racehorse. The LA Times probably takes Krauss and the multiverse seriously.
