A Blown Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Waste
The following bulshytt (example here) has been going around:
If the multiverse theory is true, then there must be a universe where the multiverse theory is false.First, “more than one” does not mean “infinite.” Second, “infinite” does not mean “anything physically possible.” Third, “anything physically possible” does not mean“anything you can think of.”
It makes just as much sense to say:
If the multiple-planets theory is true, then there must be a planet where the multiple-planets theory is false.What does this imply about the common reaction: “mind = blown?”
I was reminded of this by Mark Chu-Carroll's dissection of a similar piece of nonsense.
