Speaking of God, The Universe & Everything

Speaking of God, The Universe & Everything
.
The other day ripples from the Big Bang were found.  Maybe… using telescopes and measurements from Antarctica.  Now, it also seems (for reasons that are perfectly clear to scientists, but not to me) that this also proves the entire Multiverse Theory. Which is oddly, I think good news for Religious people.
.
See, the idea of a Multiverse is that our physical world is just one of a number (I forget if it is a really really big number or an infinite “number”) of different Universes / Realities.  So, even though our particular Universe is infinite it is but one of a massive number of infinite universes.  
.
I like to think to if as champagne bubbles in a martini glass – but I think this is a visual from a John Varley book and relates to a space station pool.  But it doesn’t matter.
.
Anyway, the thing is if there is an (near)infinite set of universes then it should be possible that in one of them (maybe this one) there IS a God who organized things.  
.
I’m not saying he is sitting in Heaven with a Blond Beard making the hair grow on the palms of naughty little boys around the world; but still there is no particular reason which one the “God Universe” is, shouldn’t be this one?  And no reason that the “Godless Universe” shouldn’t be this one either, but I would assume we wouldn't even ask the question int he other one.

But it is Schrodinger’s cat all over again, right?

I just want to know; what did that cat ever do to Schrodinger?

I mean come on! Poison and a radioactive source.
