Something from Nothing

I downloaded this and watched it in HD so I could really enjoy it - I thought some of you might like it:

Join critically-acclaimed author and evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins and world-renowned theoretical physicist and author Lawrence Krauss as they discuss biology, cosmology, religion, and a host of other topics.

Hi Bob,

I'm new to this forum and have been trailing through the various topics, threads and posts enjoying the involved discussions and debates which arise. Came across this and decided to watch it. I'm not a fan of Dawkins for many reasons. I have read some of his older books on evolutionary genetics, and enjoyed them at the time, but have since found that he has become increasingly and unnecessarily dogmatic in his skepticism to anything outside the confines of materialistic scientific orthodoxy.

This conversation was interesting in parts but I found it quite limited in actually attempting to get to the basis of the fundamental concept inherent in the title. Here is a talk which tackles many of the concepts present in the discussion above (e.g. evolution, physical laws, the big bang, anthropic principle, philosophy of science & religion, cosmology) but in my opinion in a much more stimulating and open minded manner.
