Intelligent Design The Future show

Summary: Which requires more faith: a belief in multiple universes or a belief in the intelligent design of our universe? On this episode of ID The Future, host David Boze explores the ideas found in a recent Harper's Magazine article by MIT physicist and author Alan Lightman. Some physicists attempt to side-step the intelligent design implications of our finely-tuned universe by suggesting that ours is merely one of countless universes, each with its own laws and constants. Lightman: "If the multiverse idea is correct, then the historic mission of physics to explain all the properties of our futile, a beautiful philosophical dream that simply isn't true."
