Provocative, challenging, and delightfully readable, this is a game-changing look at the most basic underpinning of existence and a powerful antidote to outmoded philosophical, religious, and scientific thinking.

The universe exists, but why does it exist? Why is there a universe—galaxies,
quasars, and the rest—rather than nothing at all? Cosmologist and self-described
“antitheist” Lawrence Krauss purports to give an answer in his recent book A
Universe from Nothing: Why There Is Something Rather Than Nothing. It contains
a “scientific”—that is, nonphilosophical and nontheological—explanation for why
there is a universe. Note, the question is not merely why does this universe exist,
but ...

Where can the Universe grow when it is as large as anything can ever be? How
can the Universe get bigger and larger, when the Universe contains everything of
that which there ever was or there can be? That the Universe can get bigger and
can hold more, we know is not the case but that means geodesic zero is as much
rubbish as anything Newtonians regard with simplicity and with careless thought.
Geodesic zero means nothing and how can I see nothing as darkness because ...

Vladimír Balek Abstract A procedure for solving Wheeler-DeWitt equation in
Euclidean region, following step by step the construction of tunneling wave
function in nonrelativistic quantum mechanics by Banks, Bender and Wu, is
proposed. Solutions for a universe satisfying no-boundary condition and a
universe created from 'nothing' are compared to the corresponding solutions for a
particle in a two-dimensional potential well, and effects of indefiniteness of metric
and zero energy in ...

“One of the most poetic facts I know about the universe is that essentially every
atom in your body was once inside a star that exploded. Moreover, the atoms in
your left hand came from a different star than did those in your right. We are all,
literally, star children, and our bodies made of stardust.”1 This is a passage from
A Universe from Nothing, a 2012 book by the cosmologist and theoretical
physicist Lawrence Krauss. An anthropomorphic conceit about the stars'
kindness in a similar ...

... time the resulting effect is nothing if not the intention of the inhabitants of the
city. In contrast, it is exactly the ugly places made by our civilization that were
planned. This is not to say that design is not necessary. But it is to say that a
process of evolution in which different designs and different intentions interact,
leading to the discovery of harmonious compromises, can produce something
more beautiful than the design of any single planner. We look around and see
that our universe is ...

In recent years we find scientists like J .A. Wheeler speaking of 'the creation
question' and describing himself as 'constructing the universe out of nothing'?
Besides the scientists themselves, there are philosophers who pursue this line of
thinking. Thus, we have the case of William Lane Craig who sees in the Big Bang
singularity a beginning of the universe from nothing, and a premise on which to
base a proof of the existence of a God." My interest is, first of all, in the doctrine of
creation ...

In A Universe from Nothing (2012), Lawrence Krauss boldly claims that creatio ex
nihilo marks the end of God-talk rather than affirming God's presence, power, and
independence at the start of creation. Krauss states that quantum physics is able
to explain that the universe is capable of creating itself out of nothing. There is no
need for a creator. Less polemic cosmologists, such as Stephen Hawking,
Leonard Mlodinow, and Alan Guth, also propose that the universe is miraculously
