Abstract

Traditional pantheism holds that the world is identical with God, where the term ‘world’ normally refers to our universe. Multiverse pantheism, on the other hand, holds that God is identical with the totality of all universes, i.e., the multiverse, which includes our universe. In this chapter, I examine strengths and shortcomings of multiverse pantheism. I argue that multiverse pantheism is attractive insofar as it overcomes many difficulties that traditional pantheism faces. I claim, however, that multiverse pantheism itself faces an unwelcome consequence that is difficult to eliminate.
