  • Something From Nothing - a conversation w/ Richard Dawkins & Lawrence Krauss - ASU Feb 4, 2012


    The Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science (
    Taped live on Feb 4, 2012 by
    In conjunction with the Origins Project at ASU
    - Show quoted text -

    (there are still some edits and color correction to be done but we wanted to have the YouTube version out as soon as possible)

    Join critically-acclaimed author and evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins and world-renowned theoretical physicist and author Lawrence Krauss as they discuss biology, cosmology, religion, and a host of other topics.

    The authors will also discuss their new books. Dawkins recently published The Magic of Reality: How We Know What's Really True, an exploration of the magic of discovery embodied in the practice of science. Written for all age groups, the book moves forward from historical examples of supernatural explanations of natural phenomena to focus on the actual science behind how the world works.

    Krauss's latest book, A Universe from Nothing: Why There is Something Rather than Nothing, explains the scientific advances that provide insight into how the universe formed. Krauss tackles the age-old assumption that something cannot arise from nothing by arguing that not only can something arise from nothing, but something will always arise from nothing.

    Founded in 2008, the ASU Origins Project is a university-wide transdisciplinary initiative aimed at facilitating cutting edge research and inquiry about origins questions, enhancing public science literacy, and improving science education. Since its inception, the Origins Project has brought the world's leading scientists, including Nobel Prize winners, to Tempe to explore origins questions. The Origins Project has hosted workshops and public events that have focused on questions as fundamental as the origin of the universe, how life began, the origins of human uniqueness, and the origins of morality.

    More videos featuring science educator Neil deGrasse Tyson is never a bad thing, and luckily this compilation came together awesome. Neil deGrasse Tyson has a doctorate in astrophysics from Columbia University and is currently director at the Hayden Planetarium. Neil feels he has a duty to inspire and educate the public. He is quoted as saying, when I was a kid... there were scientists and educators on the staff at the Hayden Planetarium... who invested their time and energy in my enlightenment... and I've never forgotten that. And to end up back there as its director, I feel this deep sense of duty, that I serve in the same capacity for people who come through the facility today, that others served for me. Thanks to the ScienceNET community for all the support and nice comments.

    Neil deGrasse Tyson Testifies Before Senate Science Committee, March 7, 2012


    Astrophysicist and space exploration advocate Neil deGrasse Tyson spoke on March 7, 2012 before the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation.

    The event was webcast live and is in the public domain.

    Visit our web site at We're on Twitter at @spacekscblog.

    UPDATE April 22, 2012 -- Lots of folks have posted comments lamenting the lack of interest by these Senators.

    What can you do?

    Join the National Space Society at This is a nationwide grassroots space advocacy group.

    You might also want to read a book by Shawn Lawrence Otto titled, Fool Me Twice: Fighting the Assault on Science in America. His web site is Mr. Otto writes that less than 2% of Congress has a science background, and the overwhelming majority are lawyers trained to argue their client's position, not for the truth.

    Posting a complaint on YouTube doesn't solve the problem. Everyone needs to become involved. Demand that your representatives in Congress support science and properly fund NASA, otherwise you won't vote for them. That's the only way you'll get their attention.

    You might also want to watch Dr. Tyson's address to the National Space Symposium on April 17. It's on YouTube at He specifically talks about the above video, at about 10 minutes into the recording. He learned that the Senators don't really care what he has to say.

    Biologist Richard Dawkins launches into a full-on appeal for atheists to make public their beliefs and to aggressively fight the incursion of religion into politics and education. Dawkins' scornful tone drew strongly mixed reactions from the audience; some stood and applauded his courage. Others wondered whether his strident approach could do more harm than good. Dawkins went on to publish The God Delusion and become perhaps the world's best-known atheist.
