"The paradox that made me stop dwelling on the subject was "if there are infinite universes, then there must be infinite in which multiverse theory is
not a reality."
That's kinda the good part about it. Many Worlds Interpretation is criticized because it doesn't come "batteries included" with the Born Rule of QM...
But because the Born rule is probabilistic, there must necessarily be world lines where the born rule doesn't apply, where its not a law of physics at
all, these are the universes where the improbable constantly happens. And of course, as you say, there must be some universes where the idea was never
discovered, some where life never arose.
But none of that invalidates it. These are places where a true reality always finds some improbable way to not be validated. We could be living in one
of the worlds where the slappingly obvious law of physics everyone else knows is never observed.
The key thing is its just an interpretation, a way to think about an underlying formalism. That formalism is the truth, its a jewel you can turn in
different angles to see its different facets, and this is one of them. Its a beautiful way to consider this world we live in, if we open to it!
