Something From Nothing According to Richard Dawkins
Last year, on Australian TV, Richard Dawkins said:
“Of course it’s counter-intuitive that you can get something from nothing. Of course common sense doesn’t allow you to get something from nothing. That’s why it’s interesting. It’s got to be interesting in order to give rise to the universe at all. Something pretty mysterious had to give rise to the origin of the universe.”
It does sound a bit as though our old friend Richard Dawkins (of the “we scientists” renown ) believes in something akin to magic.
