Article: A Universe from Someone: Against Lawrence Krauss by Peter S. Williams

In this featured article, philosopher Peter S. Williams addresses some of the problems in Lawrence Krauss's latest book, A Universe from Nothing: Why There is Something Rather than Nothing.

Williams writes:

"Krauss spends most of his book redefining ‘nothing’ in terms of increasingly incorporeal somethings (from ‘empty space’ to reified ‘laws of physics’), as if this justified the conclusion that literal nothingness could be the cause the cosmos. That’s like arguing that since its possible to live on less and less food each day it must be possible to live on no food."

You can checkout the rest of the article here.  We have added this article to our "Responses to Notable Skeptics" page located here.

Further, you can listen to or watch Dr. William Lane Craig debate Dr. Krauss here.  This debate was very entertaining and the only debate I remember listening to when someone actually removed their shirt...

Courage and Godspeed,
