Lawrence Krauss blasphemes Our Lord

â . . . forget Jesus; the stars died so that you can be here, today,â is a comment from Lawrence M. Krauss, Foundation Professor in the School of Earth and Space Exploration and Physics Department, and Inaugural Director of the Origins Initiative, at Arizona State University. He spoke about humans supposedly coming from star dust (in an obviously mocking tone). You can watch his short video on YouTube at www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFMmzKDonRY
Dr. Krauss was a very vocal opponent of the Creation Museum when it first opened in 2007 (while he was a professor in the Cleveland, Ohio, area). In fact, he made some scathing attacks on the Creation Museum, including a commentary in the Cincinnati Enquirer newspaper (although he had not bothered to visit the museum). He was an advisory board member of the now-defunct group âCampaign to Defend the Constitutionâ (DefCon); DefCon members were out in front of our museum gates as protestors of the museum (not defenders of free speech!) when we opened in May 2007 (but Dr. Krauss did not tour the museum at that time). At about the same time, Dr. Krauss debated me on live national TV on the popular program, The OâReilly Factor, on the Fox Network.
Krauss himself got criticism from some in the secular press because he had not even visited the museum to see it for himself. Presumably because of this criticism, he did come some time later and walked through the Creation Museum exhibits with AiGâs CCO, Mark Looy. Mark actually timed Kraussâs visit. He took a whole 22 minutes to walk through the museum, most of the time asking Mark Looy questions and only occasionally glancing at some of the exhibits. Considering it would take a person nearly one and a half hours to watch the programs in the various theatres, including the Planetarium and SFX theatre, plus take 2 hours to watch all the 50-plus videos in the various exhibits, and a further two hours to read all the signage—it was obvious Krauss wasnât the least bit interested in researching the content of the museum (as one would expect from a real scientist and well-known anti-creationist commentator), but only visited presumably to tell people he has seen the Creation Museum and thus could comment on it—what a farce!
