My point is that #2 could be seen to argue for #1. If it is plausible for intelligent life to evolve to a point capable of creating a universe, then an infinity of universes would make that plausibility a probability (if not inevitability). This afterall is the same rationale for how the multiverse concept explains the anthropic observation---an infinity of universes means that even unlikely ones like ours will exist. If there is an intelligence out there designing universes, then I think ours is more likely to be a product of that intelligence than of random chance.It is a huge assumption that an "intelligence" like ours will/can develop the capability to create universes even if "we" are able to explore the principles behind our own univers'es creation and may eventually reach sufficient knowledge to recognise and explore signs of the existence of parallel universes. I don't see anyone can assign a definite probability to the development of universe-creating capabilities given human-like intelligence is achieved. That is a leap of faith. The "proof" seems to rely on assigning a non-zero probability to development of universe-creating capabilities plus the existence of an infinity of universes. Two huge assumptions, but who knows? I don't.Gunnar
