I read this article today and it has made me think a lot. It can describe my thoughts lately pretty well. I have also been reading his book a universe from nothing. Anyone else a fan of Krauss?

Isn't there anyone else here who is familiar with Theoretical physicist, and cosmologist Lawrence Krauss? Guess not....

Yes, I'm familiar with him.

I'm also familiar with Christof Koch, Francis Crick, David Chalmers, Patricia Smith Churchland, Alfred North Whitehead, Thomas Nagel, Daniel Dennett, and the Easter Bunny.

I'm not a "fan" of any of them (except, occasionally, the Easter Bunny... but only when he brings chocolate covered peanut butter eggs).
Go in all ways contrary to the world.

Doc erased his comment to me but my response to you Doc is that I am highly interested in observing a phenomenon. I'm interested in "as lived", on the court explanations of a phenomenon rather than an "in the stands" commentary on something. An article about an article has no "scientific" value in my opinion. Especially from the not-so-subtle materialist point of view you are operating from.
