Lawrence Krauss and Much Ado About Nothing

Lawrence Krauss published a book titled A Universe from Nothing. His use of the word “nothing” is no less ridiculous than the use of the word “nobody” in the following passage from Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking Glass:

King: “Just look along the road, and tell me if you can see either of them.”

Alice: “I see nobody on the road,” said Alice.

King: “I only wish I had such eyes,” the King remarked in a fretful tone. “To be able to see Nobody! And at that distance, too! Why, it’s as much as I can do to see real people, by this light!”

And the following reception by Stephen Colbert is quite justified.
