Is it consensus among cosmologist that there is probably at least one type of multiverse? Is there any renowned physicist who rejects the idea of multiverse? I'm not talking about those who claim it's unscientific, untestable, etc., but those who think there is no such thing. That our universe as we know is finite and unique.

By "multiverse", I mean any of Brian Greene's nine types

And I'm not asking for a list or the Physics.SE users' opinions on multiverse. I'm asking if the basic idea of there being at least one type of multiverse is generally accepted among cosmologists.

    $\begingroup$ This question appears to be off-topic, e.g. because it is about opinions of people rather than physics, and a list question. $\endgroup$ – Qmechanic Dec 14 '14 at 12:23

    $\begingroup$ I can either get a PhD in cosmology and have my own opinion or ask what the opinion of experts are. Also, I never asked for a list. I just want to know if there is a consensus. Sounds to me like a perfectly reasonable question. It's fine if you can't answer it, but I don't agree with putting it on hold as off-topic. Anyway, I reworded the question and I hope it's clearer now. Please reconsider it. And if I'm missing something, sorry for the trouble. $\endgroup$ – Wood Dec 14 '14 at 19:44
  • $\begingroup$ I think this is on-topic, but understand it might result in a fractious, partisan discussion (which I discourage). Asking about the consensus amongst experts seems reasonable to me. I'm suggesting re-open. $\endgroup$ – innisfree Dec 14 '14 at 21:32
