Lawrence M. KraussIt is beyond a pay wall, but here is a link to an article from a french journalist, Peggy Sastre, @nikitakarachoi,
who writes about the intrusion of political correctness into science.
In today’s senate hearing Judge Amy Coney Barrett was asked about her views on climate change. Her response, which we have heard often from policymakers, was “You know, I’m certainly not a scientist,” she said, and added that “I have read things...
Lawrence M. KraussScientific illiteracy among public officials shouldn’t be acceptable. Scientific issues impact public policy and saying “I am not a scientist” is not an excuse. My newest blog post
In his 93 years, David Attenborough has visited every continent on the globe, exploring the wild places of our planet and documenting the living world in all its variety and wonder. Now, for the first time he reflects upon both the defining moments...
Lawrence M. KraussYesterday I watched 94 year old David Attenborough's "A Life on Our Planet" on Netflix. He is a global treasure.. It should be required watching for all humans. I am in awe of the man, and what he has accomplished.. and of the message he is sending out

Lawrence M. KraussFinal highlight clip from @TheOriginsPod with @stephenfry. Stephen discusses notions of shame & describes how there are many things humans can be ashamed of, but not the traditional things that often are made to cause shame.
Does the fortuitous fit between living things and their environment rationally suggest that life was designed by an intelligent creator? Lawrence Krauss argues that such an inference is not well founded, and traces the history of this strain of...
Lawrence M. KraussMy new piece, Cosmology without Design, just appeared in @inferencereview. Recent bogus arguments that cosmology suggests Intelligent Design needed to be responded to. Issues are a bit subtle, but I think this is important. I hope this proves useful.
Lawrence M. KraussDarwin & Wallace demonstrated that life is fine-tuned for its environment not by design, but by natural selection. In cosmology some turn this around to claim that the environment (universe) appears fine tuned for life, requiring design. Another illusion.
Author and academic Richard Dawkins is known for his books on evolution and his controversial criticisms of religion.
Lawrence M. KraussIn a sensible world, the Auditor of the Trinity College Historical Society would resign for cancelling @RichardDawkins lecture, valuing the students' 'comfort' more than their education. Richard & I had a wonderful event there a few years ago.

The detection of a gas in the planet’s atmosphere could turn scientists’ gaze to a planet long overlooked in the search for extraterrestrial life.
Lawrence M. KraussI had been alerted yesterday that this result was coming out this week. This possibility has been discussed for awhile. Confirmation is interesting and reminds us of the variety of possibilities for life in the universe. Not definitive but interesting.
