  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?

  2. Mary,

    So according to Dilbert’s creator, not being able to rape women at will without consequence means that we live in a culture that unfairly favors women over men? Wow, I don’t think I’ll ever read Dilbert again!

    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.

      1. Lykex,

        This is worse than just incredible stupid through. Its vile. Its basically saying that men have a right to rape women.
