I’m reading “A Universe From Nothing” following this post, and am 80% through already. Some quick notes summarising significant points he makes:
- Anthropic principles do warrant serious scientific consideration. (Despite the various “fine-tuning” questions, no updated mention of the CMBR correlation with earth’s orbit.)
- String theory(ies) are overblown in public consciousness well beyond their scientific credibility. (More of the Memetic Problem.)
- “Nothing” remains the infinitely recursive hard part of the “something from nothing” question – the nature of “space” – “quantum vacuum” etc … before the big bang; multiverses, etc. Literally meta-physics. (Same old, same old.)

I assume those are responses to Krauss?
No they’re my brief summary of key points he seems to be making … (1) is important because so many who should know better dismiss it as a truism … but I’m puzzled there is no reference to his 2006 quote (in my earlier post). Need to research that specific point.
