When a scientist talks to me about his work, I get the impression he is trying to explain something. When a Christian talks to me about Christianity, I get the impression he is trying to sell me something he does not even believe himself.

Randi Kaye interviewed particle physicist Lawrence Krauss on CNN (Cable News Network) . click to watch I felt the interviewer deserved a better answer to her question The notion of nothing creating something sounds every bit as unbelievable as saying that God created all this. What do you say to those people?

He did not address her question as fully as I would have liked. I think he should have answered something like this: There in inescapable evidence for matter popping into existence out of nothing. Our instruments for exploring the quantum world, our math, our telescopes all show it happening. It is very counter intuitive for lay people because this popping into existence does not happen on the scale of watermelons that you and I live in, and you can’t see the particles with the naked eye, but it is not speculation, but observed fact. On the other hand, there is no scientific evidence whatsoever for a god, and further, there is no need for one. All we have are people’s gut reactions or feelings there is or ought to be one. The universe runs itself just fine without one. The universe does not need constant tinkering. It unfolds automatically according to beautiful mathematics.
