I watch the whole thing. Did you? Yep,and I have the book on order. I also got to attend a talk he gave in October which touched on the subject as well. So,what's your argument over the science he presents? Kraus Dawkins etc just jokers man. But a philosopher of science in this conversation or dialogue and they we can get some where! Krauss has a Doctor in Philosophy (PhD) and works as a physicist.

Krauss has a Doctor in Philosophy (PhD) and works as a physicist. Lawrence Krauss is taking science too far. He saying that the whole universe came from nothing any different then the bible say that God spoke the earth into existence. He say that there was a process but what is the process? God spoke and the earth come into existence that is a process, too. Here is a video to help explain what I am talking about. iframe wid... [More]

Ok... so what is your critique of the observation that in a vacuum particles spontaneously generate out of nothing?

Ok... so what is your critique of the observation that in a vacuum particles spontaneously generate out of nothing? That is the problem with Lawrence's view. Is there has been no observation of this phenomena? He also goes on to say life came from nonliving matter but there has been no observation to support that, too. It is not that evolution is wrong but there are questions that remain to be answer.

I believe it was a chap by the name of Miller who first condiucted experiments using non-living matter to create amino acids, which form the building blocks of life. These experiments have since been reproduced by other scientists, so I believe you are wrong on that one. edit...did a quick check ...From Wiki T... [More]

You do not have to go that far to show that animo acids can be created. Organic mater has been found in interstellar but organic matter and life are too seperate items. Many of the drugs we use are organic but they are not life. Amino acids are the building blocks of life. Life would not exist without them. Miller's experiments merely proved that these building blocks can be made from non-organic materials, which is what you are disputing I think. If that is the case then you are wrong

If that is the case then you are wrong I am not disputing anything you said. You are not wrong but the experiment did go far enough. It did not produce life. Amino acids is the building blocks but is not life. The experiment only show how amino acid could have been made.
