Introduction: Scientists think they’ve conquered the Kalam Cosmological Argument, Put appears poised to declare war on Ukraine, China’s Covid busses are killing people, Latin American Fish purloined by Xi, more….
A report in Big Think claims to have created something from nothing. But when you scratch below the surface, that nothing might be a something after all.
