Atheists Talk: Lawrence Krauss on “A Universe From Nothing”


Dr. Lawrence Krauss is a leader in the fields of theoretical physics, science advocacy in public policy and education, and scientific skepticism. We are honored to have Dr. Krauss join Atheists Talk this Sunday to discuss his recently published book, A Universe From Nothing: Why There Is Something Rather Than Nothing.

A Universe From Nothing tackles ideas of thrilling complexity and importance. After all, in this book we are not merely gathering facts and formulae about the physics of our universe. We are also exploring those questions that keep us mortal dreamers awake at night: Where did we come from? Did God start it all? Where are we going to end up?

Lawrence Krauss tells a story that weaves together the history of the fields of cosmology and astrophysics with the newest discoveries of the day, and by the end of the book we come to understand that never has nothing been so fascinating.

    I watched the lecture (or another one by him on the same subject) a few months ago; excellent and well worth the hour or so time.

    Though I will show my geek side and say I thought the science was far more interesting than the atheist/anti-religious remarks he makes near the beginning. This is NOT an accommodation or tone argument; I’m not saying he would’ve been more socially effective at changing minds if he had done x y z instead. I’m not making a comment about his social effectiveness at all. I’m only saying I liked the nerdy stuff more.

    If you enjoyed the lecture, I highly recommend the book. While it largely follows the lecture, the book expands on a lot of things that were only briefly mentioned and covers a sort of abridged history of modern physics/astronomy/cosmology.
