Back in March I had the good fortune of seeing a talk by Professor Lawrence M. Krauss, Ph. D., hosted by the University of Maryland Society of Inquiry. Dr. Krauss is a world renown theoretical physicist, and the talk was excellent. A little cosmology, a little humor, and a lot of nothing. Absolutely nothing. In fact, an entire Universe from nothing. So what did I learn? Cosmic humility, on a scale I never imagined possible.
If you find yourself with a free hour, and you want to learn what I learned, I highly recommend the video below. You won't regret it.
