← Afterword from Lawrence Krauss' New Book - A Universe From Nothing

The Buachaill's Avatar Jump to comment 29 by The Buachaill

I should clarify my previous point:

If the nothing in this case is just that which we cannot currently explain in Science, it appears to me as not a strong argument against a prime-mover; as it does not close-off the infinite regression associated with the something-from-nothing concept. I guess it does further reduce the god-of-the-gaps to an ever-smaller role, but I thought Lawrence Krauss disingenuous on the point in his presentation where he claimed this explanation of something from nothing demonstrated that there is no need for a prime mover in the universe. I would appreciate if someone can correct me on this.
