You might have had a point if you said this thirty years ago, but hypotheses and mathematical proofs regarding the existence of a multiverse have been around for quite some time, have advanced well beyond "pure guesswork", and are hardly pseudoscience.
Dailymail is far from the best source from this, but there are plenty of better ones.

The only thing that seems to be more common are people using the shoddiest sources they can find, and keen-jerk bias against such sources, or ideas that don't fit the (usually outdated or completely erroneous) preconceptions many people have developed.
The idea of a multiverse is well within the realm of scientific hypothesis, and depending how things go, could easily make it into accepted theory in the near future.

Some sources that may be of interest:
