Lawrence M Krauss, author of the excellent book "Why is there something rather than

It may be that even an eternal multiverse in which all universes and laws of nature
arise dynamically will still leave open some ‘why’ questions, and therefore never fully
satisfy theologians and some philosophers. But focusing on that issue and ignoring the
remarkable progress we can make toward answering perhaps the most miraculous aspect of
the something from nothing question—understanding why there is ‘stuff’ and not empty
space, why there is space at all, and how both stuff and space and even the forces we
measure could arise from no stuff and no space—is, in my opinion, impotent, and useless.
