Revolt of the Star Children

The Soul of the East

Lawrence Krauss, the atheist activist and physicist, has made a name for himself among contemporary materialists by declaring that we humans are made from the refuse of burned out stars. Krauss triumphantly assures us:

The amazing thing is that every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust. You couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t exploded, because the elements – the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution – weren’t created at the beginning of time.

Science and the scientific method are useful tools in understanding the natural world but they cannot be applied to the metaphysical.

I don’t know if such a view constitutes a religion, but it certainly isn’t science.

    “….perhaps patronizing compassion is the only proper manner in which to deal with someone who boldly proclaims everything came from nothing, and that we are not made in the image of our Creator, but only from some left-over stardust.” Excellent summation of the utter irrationality of Scientism.
