Eviscerating the Secular: "What on earth, then, can Krauss have been thinking? "

Krauss seems to be thinking that these vacuum states amount to the relativistic-­quantum-field-theoretical version of there not being any physical stuff at all.
And he has an argument -- or thinks he does --€” that the laws of relativistic quantum field theories entail that vacuum states are unstable. And that, in a nutshell, is the account he proposes of why there should be something rather than nothing....But that'€™s just not right.... He does a good deal of railing about “the intellectual bankruptcy of much of theology and some of modern philosophy.” But all there is to say about this, as far as I can see, is that Krauss is dead wrong and his religious and philosophical critics are absolutely right. -- "A Universe From Nothing,"by Lawrence M. Krauss - NYTimes.com

Your Say

For a fun comparison you might compare Theologian/Philosopher William Lane Craig and Lawrence Krauss for intellectual rigor. Craig has many videos on YouTube and Krauss is certainly a world-class cosmologist, but like other liberals he thinks his ability on one area equates to ability in all areas.

I think Krauss and Craig had one or more debates, if you are interested.

The Progressives have infiltrated our scloohs. There is no more truth no black or white. But it has also infiltrated many churches and why we are that church of Laodicea. It is time to wake up. As a Messianic Jew (Christian) I've always taught my sons never to believe what they are told but to research and weigh things against the Word of G-d and against our Constitution. My GGGG grandfather was one of the founding fathers Signers of the Declaration of Independence. Just today a woman on FB who is a Progressive didn't know the Declaration of Independence from the US Constitution This is why I support Charter Schools, Christian Schools and home schooling. My sons attended a Christian school and they were home schooled (encouraged to read, taken to museums and travel) They were in Church and we studied the word. CMy youngest son is now a Mechanical Engineer and serving in the US Navy ( Nuclear Engineering) and is a Conservative He has organized a prayer group in the evening with other Navy serviceman.
