    I find the book “The Origin of the Universe – Case Closed” to be compelling. It has easy to follow math in the Appendix to back up its claims. It is hard to argue with math! It’s easy to follow with many pictures.

      I scanned through the book. It is a sophisticated example of the same smokescreen strategy that i have referred to in my answer:
      1. It redefines nothing so that it is something, as “uncaused natural state” which conveniently is latent with the potential to manifest everything. That obviously is not nothing.
      2. To say that “it is hard to argue with maths” is to admit that nothing was an arena for the action of maths – and so was not nothing.

    Haribol Prabhuji!
    Thank you for your answer. Better to concentrate on improving chanting and devotional activities…. the new theories shall keep coming (as you said).
