I salute your sharpness and wit.

Comment 9 by Anaximander :

But if something comes from nothing and nothing comes from philosophy, does it mean that everything comes from philosophy?

Krauss, just seems inept when it comes to philosophy. In one talk he had to be explained the Humean idea of getting an ought from an is. In the latest talk with Dawkins he declared classical logic dead with an example of humans and death and so on. Showing utter ignorance of the workings of logic, strange seeing how classical logic is what mathematicians as he himself uses all the time.

When things go in favor of god he is good, when they go against him he works in mysterious ways. I think its rather the other way around; all the suffering shows he is evil and when he does good he works in mysterious ways.

Correct, I thought that would not be to hard to deduce, I am still thinking it was not... It is quite apparent outside looking in.

Not too happy about his address, it falls into what we call typically american, its clisheyish. Extremities, us/them, nationalistic, patriotic(racisms geographism), and so on. Though I sympathize with his cause.

It seems Dawkins goal is succeeding. I have noticed that in the debates where they do polls, the undecided seems to go to the atheist(there could be a whole lot of switcheroos) side and the religious side seems stable.

You Atheist! Is by no means bad where I am from, its rather you christian or other-religion that is bad.. Science win. Even the religious seem a bit shameful of being religious. I think its because they know how ridiculous their position is.

Spot the very potential oxymoron ...The Magic of Reality....:

I found this part particularly funny: “It is such a shame that the sense of awe, wonder, and indeed mystery, that he opens up so jars with his dismissal of any who do not regard evolution as a complete explanation of existence."

"Spinoza does not believe that worshipful awe or reverence is an appropriate attitude to take before God or Nature. There is nothing holy or sacred about Nature, and it is certainly not the object of a religious experience. Instead, one should strive to understand God or Nature, with the kind of adequate or clear and distinct intellectual knowledge that reveals Nature's most important truths and shows how everything depends essentially and existentially on higher natural causes. The key to discovering and experiencing God, for Spinoza, is philosophy and science, not religious awe and worshipful submission. The latter give rise only to superstitious behavior and subservience to ecclesiastic authorities; the former leads to enlightenment, freedom and true blessedness (i.e., peace of mind)."(http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/spinoza/#Oth)

Something to notice here is that several muslim fighters in at least Afghanistan don't wear body armor for the reason given above. They are quite careless fighters in other respects as well, I saw one vid of a fellow standing straight up in a barrage of bullets only stopped by the scary incident of his magazine being hit and struck off his ak-47.
