    I've not been keeping up with Lawrence Krauss the last couple years. He was and maybe still is, one of my favourite physicists. However like so many, seems he might become better known for fondling & groping women. Too bad because I really liked the guy. Whether allegations are true or not, he's now covered in paint from the same brush that whitewashed Harvey Weinstein. I don't feel sorry for these guys and if Krauss is guilty then he should face the consequences.

    I've heard Krauss mention Richard Feynman many times during a lecture and it looks like more than just cosmology rubbed off onto Lawrence. Seems Feynman had same problem and perhaps was a misogynist of an even greater magnitude. Is wondering what's under her lab coat more appealing than an amazing discovery?

    Celebrity status, the old 'do you know who I am' syndrome. Why would anyone risk a career and/or fame by inappropriately touching women? Especially a renowned scientist. So smart and yet so stupid. Maybe he should have taken up evolution like his buddy Dawkins. Maybe he did.

    All that belongs to human understanding, in this deep ignorance and obscurity, is to be skeptical, or at least cautious; and not to admit of any hypothesis, whatsoever; much less, of any which is supported by no appearance of probability...Hume
