Krauss's Problem With Nothing
Lawrence Krauss’s outrageous enthusiasm for the supposed atheistic implications of the discovery of the Higgs particle is misplaced. Even if the Higgs particle is the real McCoy, and thus inflationary cosmology is vindicated, inflationary models cannot be extended to past infinity. While Krauss claims the Higgs particle solves the problem of “creating ‘stuff’ from ‘no stuff,” it does nothing of the kind, since quantum space is still something, and since it appears only after the Big Bang. We still need a Banger.
