kottke.org posts about A Universe from Nothing

Why is there something rather than nothing?

That is the question that physicist Lawrence Krauss answers in his book, A Universe from Nothing. The book’s trailer provides a little more context.

Everything we see is just a 1% bit of cosmic pollution in a Universe dominated by dark matter and dark energy. You could get rid of all the things in the night sky — the stars, the galaxies, the planets, everything — and the Universe would be largely the same.

And my favorite line from the trailer:

Forget Jesus, the stars died so you could be born.
