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.

There is another good article at:

See David Albert's review


Also see Vic Stenger's response to Albert's critique


Obviously comp is closer to Albert, but Albert is still ignorant of "number's theology". Krauss illustrates how pseudo-religious science can be, from time to time.
