Nonlocality as Evidence for a Multiverse Cosmology

by Max Andrews

The following is an abstract from a paper written by Frank Tipler–a major proponent in the fine-tuning/intelligent design dialogues. I believe this is one of Tipler’s papers that he has been trying to get published for a while but has been unable to because it challenges the status quo concerning the issue of nonlocality in quantum mechanics.  I found the paper very interesting and it’s a very short and easy read.

I show that observations of quantum nonlocaltiy can be interpreted as purely local phenomena, provided one assumes that the cosmos is a multiverse. Conversely, the observation of quantum nonlocality can be interpreted as observation evidence for a multiverse cosmology, just as observation of the setting of the Sun can be interpreted as evidence for the Earth’s rotation.

  1. Hi, Mr. Andrews. That paper has recently been published as the following:

    Regarding Prof. Tipler’s physics work relating to theology, you may be interested in my following article, which concerns Tipler’s Omega Point cosmology and the Feynman-DeWitt-Weinberg quantum gravity/Standard Model Theory of Everything (TOE):
