Why not theorize on God?

Most of the time religion has little to do with science. However, I see hypocrisies in what we’re allowed to theorize and what is taboo.

String theory suggests that alternate, parallel universes may be possible. This is totally theoretical because it likely can’t be known for sure. It can’t be proved or disproved. This is totally acceptable to converse about in the scientific community, but when someone theorizes the possibility of God, he is called a crackpot.

So God can’t even be discussed as a theoretical concept – despite that there are brilliant scientists who say God could be possible, basing this hypothesis on scientific observations such as the math that makes up the fine tuning of the universe; DNA; the cell; etc.?

So science is allowed to hypothesize alternate, parallel universes, and no one has a problem with that. But if someone hypothesizes God, he is laughed out of the scientific community. Both are theoretical, and neither can be known to exist for certain. Yet one is viewed as good science and the other is seen as foolishness. That hypothesis sounds more like hypocrisy!

If God does exist, it’s probably just in one of these unseen alternate universes. Wouldn’t that be the ultimate irony!
