I hope his shirt isn't around for billions of years to come. Thank God he didn't mention Mohammed.

Look at Psalm 19. "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world." This is no story told by an iron-age peasant - this is poetry written by a king. Poetry that shows the king gazes up into the skies and is amazed - the same amazement as Laurence Krauss experiences. It is a shame that Laurence cannot use his knowledge of physics and mathematics to extend his view to beyond what he can see and experience.

That's because your point of view is limited only to the knowledge about the universe and it's inner workings. but you're almost there. go further than that and understand and discover more about the universe. just by going there you will arrive at a realization. that realization is for you to find out. don't just stop there because if you do, you will fail to arrive at which is really your destiny. and you are on your way. i could almost sense it, the way you understand the universe. just go further. don't sit there congratulating yourself that you know something to refute what "iron age peasant" have conjured. because when you do, I find you very self riouteous and idiotic knowing you are a man of science and yet you have to tell us this just to refute what that "iron age peasant" has written?

It's easy to speculate and make up ideas that have no basis in reality. It's much harder to speculate and make up ideas that do and can be tested. But hey, do whatever is easiest and claim it's just as valid and that everyone else has no imagination or whatever.
