Alex Tsakiris of Skeptiko Interviews Theoretical Physicist Dr. Lawrence Krauss About Whether Reincarnation Is Nonsense and Why the Dalai Lama Should Step Down

Join Skeptiko host Alex Tsakiris for an interview with Dr. Lawrence Krauss, author of A Universe From Nothing. During the interview Professor Krauss discusses his film “The Unbelievers”, and his call for the Dalai Lama to resign


Del Mar, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/01/2015 -- One of the many aspects [of Buddhism] that is completely ridiculous is [this person] who claims to be a reasonable man, and tries to be in accord with science, the Dalai Lama. His whole position is based on something that is absolutely ridiculous. If [he] really believed in what he said; if he really put his money where his mouth is, he would resign as Dalai Lama because the Dalai Lama is based on reincarnation which is just nonsense.

Alex Tsakiris: I don't know if it's just nonsense.

Lawrence Krauss: It is nonsense.

Alex Tsakiris: But I just talked to Jim Tucker, respected psychologist in the department of Psychology and Psychiatry at the University of Virginia. They've done extensive work published in the best journals in their field, and they offer the only explanation for what they found in terms of reincarnation... I think you would really have to tell me specifically what is wrong with--back to science--what's wrong with the scientific method they've employed?
