Did anyone see the guest on Colbert a few nights ago?

Sorry if someone already posted about this.  On Colbert a few nights ago, he had an awesome scientist on named Lawrence Krauss who wrote a book called" A UNIVERSE FROM NOTHING -why there is something rather than nothing".

Anyway he is a Quantum Physics Professor , I think from Arizona State, and he was SO smart I couldn't understand half of what he was talking about, lol.  He was explaining how nothing (blank space) actually weighs something, and it will expand exponentially until there is something.  I hope I'm explaining this right.  I want to buy the book.

Colbert asked what about 'god', and Professor Krauss said something to the effect that you don't need god.  Also he said since we know this scientific 'stuff' (my word, lol), that we no longer need to believe stories written by ignorant men in the Bronze Age. LOL

Of course Colbert had to make a few remarks, and the audience was unsure whether to cheer more for the Professor or Colbert, but I think the Professor made even that liberal audience a little uncomfortable. Good!

Thanks for the heads up. I'm going to check it out

Cool thanks - I just noticed this link - It will help a ton!

Thanks Edward.

No, I don't think so VikingDon, I think he was talking about empty-space, but maybe dark matter too?  Like I said, it was over my head, lol.  Edward posted the link, and I'm going to buy the book to understand it better.

I was actually surprised that he didn't used the words dark matter.

Thanks for posting the link Edward!~ Melinda

I adore Krauss, you can find a plethora of his talks on youtube. Thanks for posting this Melinda!

Cool Tammy!  I had never heard of him before!  I am going to check-out his videos on youtube. :)~ Melinda

I will have to look that professor up on the Internet.

I missed that show.

Thanks for the post booklover.

Have a good weekend!

You have a good weekend too Steph!  I haven't been able to watch Colbert for a while because they changed the times they show the reruns, but I was SO glad I caught that one!~ Melinda
