Yes, we are trying to throw it out but parents keep indoctrinating their children into ancient childish belief systems.

Yes, I watched he just said it. And this is the proof? So, we should follow him. The bottomline of his argument is that most of the matter is empty due to the empty space in the atom (he showed things), and he made an equation like 50:50, and concluded "nothing created everything, or everything came out of nothing" This is diametrically opposite of what a rational humanbeing would say. Theists say God created out of nothing, and there is a universe-huge difference between the two arguments. My view.

Yep! Save a tree! Use a buybull as toilet paper instead!
Answer #4 | 23/07 2014 15:35
We should throw it out in the realm of science and reason. Still valid in the study of theology and philosophy.

Isn't that the dizzy fool who wrote an entire book misrepresenting a quantum fluctuation as nothing? The same fellow who published a booked titled the science behind Star Trek only to talk about Lost in Space. He has been caught in two lies already, why believe him?

No. That doesn't make any sense at all. Science explains the world, but there is more to the world than explaining it. By your logic, we should also eliminate baseball and dessert, since those things don't promote investigation into the physical universe. Personally, I don't really care. I know loads of people who aren't even scientists. They're, like, salesmen and mechanics and stuff. I even know a few writers. Those poor writers. Do you really think we should burn all their literature, since writing is not necessary to explain anything (except record books, I guess, which isn't really "writing")? I think this Krauss fella really has a really closed-minded view of things that add value to the lives of people. He needs to get out more.

I believe his point was that many people believe that only god can explain existence. He has correctly pointed out that they are wrong. If your car overheats. It might be low on water, the thermostat may be broken, or the water pump may have failed. The fact that there are viable alternatives means that it is fallacious to say, "My car overheats, so the water pump must have failed." That doesn't mean that your water pump works, just that your logic stinks.
Answer #8 | 23/07 2014 15:44
That is an individual decision but my advice is to drop belief in the supernatural of any kind. YMMV.

"If you look at the universe and study the universe, what you find is that there is no evidence that we need anything other than the laws of physics and the other laws of science to explain everything we see. There's absolutely no evidence that we need any supernatural hand of god." -- Lawrence Krauss, World-Renowned Physicist
