Monicks: Unleashed

Thinking Critically

By

A Universe From Nothing

Lawrence Krauss at the Atheist Alliance International 2009, gives a talk on our current picture of the universe, how it will end, and how it could have come from nothing. Krauss is the author of many bestselling books on Physics and Cosmology, including “The Physics of Star Trek.”

This is, by far, the best talk I’ve had the pleasure to listen to. It is a bit long so, if you don’t have much time to listen to the whole talk now, at least listen to this excerpt, it’s just one minute long.

    Of course you use the word nothing but you hope to hoodwink your listeners and readers, because you actually mean something.
     
    But why do you want to fool yourself and others?
     
    That is something for you to search your heart and mind about.

    Just by your saying that I’m “hoodwinking” my visitors, I know that you did not listen to Prof. Krauss’ talk, which would have explained what the title refers to.

    But why do you want to fool yourself and others?

    I am not trying to fool anyone, fools are already fooled by themselves and their willful ignorance.

    Listen to the talk and you’ll probably learn something – if you’re willing to.

    I am not referring to the talk, but to your write up, in particular this line:
    “and how it [the universe] could have come from nothing.”
     
    Anyway, I like to read your explanation on how the universe could have come from nothing.
     
    And I recommend you for not suppressing this comment.

    Sir, I would very much like to be a cosmologist, or have a Phd in astrophysics, but I don’t. If I did I would gladly make a fantastic argument to explain to you how and what I base my assertions on.
    In fact, the term “could have” in that excerpt you are quoting, represents a possibility, not a fact.
    Again, Prof. Krauss IS a Cosmologist and during his talk he explains how the universe COULD HAVE come from nothing.
    He also talks about “dark matter”, which is the “nothing” that is something.
    Listen to his talk, you will enjoy it. 😉
