Something from Nothing: Dawkins and Krauss Discuss

I don’t know anything about science. I was comforted to know that some of its most renowned contributors don’t either:

So something might have come from nothing because nothingness doesn’t exist (we think). Physicists are like fringe archaeologists constructing an ancient language from a single word.

Krauss touches upon a particularly depressing poetic injustice. In a trillion years time we will lose sight of the observable universe, becoming as blind to the wider universe as our ancestors. But don’t worry – we won’t last that long.
