Is Belief in God Compatible With Belief in a Multiverse? Ken Ham Says No

“This idea is based in atheistic, naturalistic beliefs about the origin of the universe, not on the eyewitness account of history God has given us in his Word.” - C.Leaders

I would personally align more with John Lennox on this, than Ken Ham.  I don't believe we have any evidence that it exists, but if it did, I don't see it as an incompatability in a belief in God as revealed in His Scripture.

According to Brittanica, the “multiverse” is “a hypothetical collection of potentially diverse observable universes, each of which would comprise everything that is experimentally accessible by a connected community of observers.”

In a separate Live Science article, Sutter explains the multiverse in this way: 

Multiverse theory suggests that our universe, with all its hundreds of billions of galaxies and almost countless stars, spanning tens of billions of light-years, may not be the only one. Instead, there may be an entirely different universe, distantly separated from ours — and another, and another. Indeed, there may be an infinity of universes, all with their own laws of physics, their own collections of stars and galaxies (if stars and galaxies can exist in those universes), and maybe even their own intelligent civilizations.

It could be that our universe is just one member of a much grander, much larger multitude of universes: a multiverse.

If we're going to talk about omniscience, I don't see what the objection is to having a multiverse.  We cannot put a limit on God's knowledge by saying that there is only one universe and then limiting God's knowledge to just the one universe that we are currently aware of.  When God knows everything, it includes everything, including whether or not I chose to write this post or decided it was silly and didn't post it.
