Many people have obviously been reading Lawrence Krauss’ infamous book: “A Universe from Nothing: Why There is something Rather Than Nothing”
Krauss and many other physicists continuously engage in this type of low-level philosophy with the ironic goal of diminishing the value of philosophy using “science”.
This paper dissects all the arguments in Krauss’ book and shows from a mathematical standpoint that like others who make similar arguments, they are not grounded in actual physics and are extremely flawed. One therefore concludes, that such arguments are not based in science, but in bad philosophy.

But this is not nothing, it is something, where did this structure come from? Krauss actually ignores the question entirely in his book, which is very strange.
The famed cosmologist George Ellis also has discussed Krauss’ book in one of his talks, here is the link for that:
