Dear Krista:

I thought your show with Dr. Krauss was wonderful. More than any guest in recent memory he captures my point of view. His enthusiasm can be intimidating, but I share it. The only quibble I have is with his answer to your question about what science can give to the person who is dying. It was, I suspect, a question he hadn't pondered much but if he had I believe he might have said that neither religion or science can give much to the dying. My experience is that the dying need the presence and touch of the living, especially family and friends, or empathetic good Samaritans. It is a conceit of both religion and science that the dying need either.
