Multiverse models are equally non scientific, since they're not falsifiable - indeed hypothetical alternative universes would be impossible to contact or analyse in any way.

For me, Rav Hirsh and other rationalists (Rambam, Chovos Halevavos) are the starting point of the theological journey, Kuzari and Ramchal (that focus on revelation and mesorah) are the bridge, all leading to action and a personal relationship: הִגִּ֥יד לְךָ֛ אָדָ֖ם מַה־טּ֑וֹב וּמָֽה־יְהֹוָ֞ה דּוֹרֵ֣שׁ מִמְּךָ֗ כִּ֣י אִם־עֲשׂ֤וֹת מִשְׁפָּט֙ וְאַ֣הֲבַת חֶ֔סֶד (Michah 6:8) וְהַצְנֵ֥עַ לֶ֖כֶת עִם־אֱלֹהֶֽיךָ׃

Rav Hirsch's argument sounds a lot like Kant's arguments in "A Critque of Pure Reason". In any event, the ancient philosophers such as Aristotle understood that there could be no science without philosophy. For proof of this, look no further than modern science. Particularly in the field of psychiatry, which I study.
