Seems to me you could just as easily say it is a
universalist panacea in that in as many universes you
will be saved no matter what religion may be the
correct one, because there will be myriad of everyone
that are pious adherents to that belief.
So, MWH is far from a religion killer. Ultimately how
infinite you or me would be reconciled by a God
depends on the conception of God to begin with. You
are of course assuming that the myriad of each of us
are somehow connected in a way that MWH doesn't
postulate, as has been discussed in passing by Howard
in the past.
Anyway, to repeat the point: since there are an
infinite number of everyone who is saved, salvation
can as easily be characterized as triumphing under
MWH. No religion killer there.
