25 Strangest Scientific Theories Ever Proposed

To better understand our world, scientists have presented some of the strangest scientific theories ever. They’re pretty much all wrong. Still, that doesn’t stop people from buying into them. On face value, some wacko scientific theories seem to be reasonable. Remember in the movie “My Girl” when Vada (Anna Chlumsky) tells Thomas (Macaulay Culkin) about the Phrenology statue? I do. And I totally believed it as a kid (I don’t anymore). But, here’s the thing, adults believed in Phrenology, too. What’s Phrenology? Stick around. It’s coming up.
The point is this: Many of these strangest scientific theories try to explain our world, its origins, or how certain things work, but they’re all way off the mark. They might sound good, but that doesn’t mean it’s true. Of course, pseudoscience and weird science still makes for good reading. It’ll give you a good anecdote when you’re with your friends and family. You can tell them about how someone thought life existed on the Sun. Let out a hearty laugh; it’s good for you.
Of course, there are so many bizarre scientific theories out there that it’s impossible to name them all. Nevertheless, many of these are stranger than the rest of them. Here are 25 strangest scientific theories ever proposed.

A universe with many black holes has several baby universes

black holes

This theory arose from the theory that we are a child of a black hole. The idea is that when matter is pulled into a black hole, it becomes so dense that the black hole spits it out and forms a universe from it. Remember white holes?


We create a universe every time we make a decision


This theory takes a different approach to the theory of the omniverse, or having many worlds. It states that we give birth to a new universe every time we make a decision since that is how we create reality.


Our universe is constantly smashing into a neighboring universe

According to the Clashing Branes Theory, our universe is a membrane floating in higher dimensional space and constantly smashing into a neighboring universe. This theory leads to the idea that a new big bang is produced every now and then which in turn leads to even more universes.


Space-time is a super-fluid substance


The theory that space-time flows with zero friction is considered to be one of the most bizarre theories of this century. According to physicists Pawel Mazur and George Chapline, if space-time is super-fluid that means that the rotation of the universe causes super-fluid space-time to scatter with vortices. Those vortices give birth to galaxies, causing the never-ending expansion of the universe.


Universes continue to evolve, and those with the most black holes dominate the multiverse

black holes 2

A scientist once theorized that when matter is compressed to extreme densities at the center of a black hole, it leads to the creation of a baby universe. These universes evolve, make many black holes, and dominate the multiverse.
