Lawrence Krauss is a Cosmologist at Arizona State University who describes himself as an "anti-theist". His latest book "A Universe From Nothing" has received both acclaim and criticism for its attempt to answer the question "Why is there something rather than nothing?"

Debating the issue with Krauss is Rodney Holder, Course director at the Faraday Institute, Cambridge. An astrophysicist and priest by background. In a lively exchange they debate whether Krauss' "nothing" is "nothing", fine tuning and multiverses, scientific knowledge, miracles and the usefulness of theology and philosophy.
