Thereâs a listener comment that came in after yesterdayâs program.

Lawrence Krauss a theoretical physicist at the University of Arizona assembles the latest knowledge about the nature of outer space in his new book A UNIVERSE FROM NOTHING. And he argues that the universe came from nothing. Itâs a revolutionary viewâespecially if you rely on the worldâs major religions to explain existence.
Lawrence Krauss welcome to WMNF. The universe came from nothing?
