Through reason we can infer the unseen from the seen — everything from the existence of unseen electrons to the existence of an unseen intelligent designer from the evidence of design in nature.
Orthodoxy and heresy are not synonyms for true and false, and sometimes the truth might lie with the heretics.
“Let’s listen to the data,” says Eberlin. “Let’s surrender to the evidence” — which points to intelligent design.
The question she leaves unaddressed is why scientists would choose, despite the absence of evidence, despite the fact that the multiverse is “unobservable by assumption,” to believe in a multiverse.
“Follow the evidence wherever it leads.” It’s almost the official rallying cry of intelligent design proponents.
