  1. I don’t find the criticisms I’ve seen of Krauss’s A Universe from Nothing to be convincing, including the criticism linked here. They generally boil down to either:

    – Krauss’s definition of nothing isn’t really nothing.


    – We can’t know what came before our universe.

    The first may be true, but I don’t see how it’s relevant. It feels like a philosophical dodge.

    The second may or may not be true. I don’t think it’s a useful criticism of a potential explanation of the origin of the universe. I would see this as a legitimate criticism if Krauss were saying that he has proof that his explanation is correct. Has he done that?

    1. Wish I could be surprised, but Adams has a history of saying incredibly stupid things. He’s the kind of person who’s so convinced of his own brilliance, he feels no need to fact-check; if Scott Adams thought it, it must be true.
