It had not occurred to me that anyone would see the beginning of the universe as a challenge to their faith, but evidently some do.
German theoretical physicist Sabine Hossenfelder takes even human choices to be merely an illusory experience.
Why should Sabine Hossenfelder think for a moment that anything that occurs to her has any correspondence to truth?
Hossenfelder’s strongest argument is that many fine-tuning parameters cannot in fact be quantified.
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.
