I think Steve has a very good idea, for down the road, if he were to (sadly) retire from the radio show Matt.

I know I would listen if I had the privilege. Matt has been impressing me for quite some time.
Malachi 3:16 Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another, and the LORD gave attention and heard [it,] and a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the LORD and who esteem His name. (NASB) :)

I think what continues to impress us about Matt, is that he is a genuine seeker after truth and reality. Such people are rather rare.

NOPE! We'd better not do that. Matt, you still have a long ways to go. (As do we all).

What is M-Theory, you ask? It is the belief that there are lots of universes. These other universes exist in other dimensions that we don’t have access to.


Wikipedia states the following:
The Universe is commonly defined as the totality of existence.
Various dictionaries I consulted say something very similar.

If this is what is meant by "Universe", how can there be another one?
I just picked on an interesting idea. I wasn't going to saying anything about Matt's article lest his head explodes.

I suspect the idea is built based on our perception that our universe, as we see it, is everything. If this universe happened to come out of something unseen , such as some other-dimensional source, who could blame us for not recognizing the 'extent' of the universe?

By the way, where is the end of the universe?
