Dr. Krauss tends to lump all religion into one type; literal, superstitious, close minded. Which is the same way that those religious people lump scientists; unspiritual, lacking compassion, rigidly focused on empirical data rather than ethical considerations. It may have been for effect but it would have been nice for him to give a nod to those religious progressives who have helped in advancing the understanding of science as a spiritual practice. As he, Dr. Krauss is advancing the understanding of science in a spiritual way.For those who are not scientists it may be the only way they can understand science....spiritually. And I wonder if after growing up from the belief of Santa Claus if he would deny his children the same fascination, wonder, mystery of that tradition. In my experience, the tradition of Santa Claus is a childlike way of discovering something much larger.
