Schools: Multiverse Theory

Volume 688: debated on Thursday 18 January 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Written Answer by the Lord Adonis on 18 December 2006, whether multiverse theory could be taught in schools, being one of a range of views on the cause of a universe hospitable to life which students might consider and evaluate against the evidence. [HL1290]

Multiverse theory—the theory that there are other universes besides our own—is not part of the national curriculum for science. The advanced science behind this theory is normally taught at university.
