The victim for one, but Vlad doesn't seem to give a shit about exploiting her distress for his own satisfaction.

No, but how can the world of celebrity scepticism escape the march of hashtag Me Too?

No it explains the course of action being taken at the moment by Arizona state university regarding an incident at The Australian skeptics convention in 2016.

At first the university took no action but apparently reopened the case

Now the point is although the action has been taken by Krauss's university. The incident occurred at a Skeptics convention. The organisers of the event have refused to have Krauss back. Their statement does I move make interesting reading and IMHO is of a completely different approach to that demonstrated by many on this forum. They mention in their statement of policy on sexual harassment that in banning Krauss from their events they experienced opposition from other skeptics.

Who were not in possession of the full facts. What is your point?

I think that is all answered in the news article and the letter/report of the investigation linked to it. I'm not sure what else you are expecting.

Incident occurred - Nov 2016
Complaint raised to the University in July 2017 - investigation was carried out that concluded that there was insufficient evidence for action
New witnesses and new evidence identified in Feb 2018, investigation re-opened
re-opened investigation concludes that he violated their code ACD401 - case closed July 2018

Antitheist, atheist and skeptic groups he has been associated with including the BHA and NSS...although I'm not sure whether the latter two have disassociated themselves from him although Krauss is no longer on the list of honorary Associates of the NSS.


Krauss was a leading celebrated proponent of the old religion makes good people bad business and even declared that science made people good.


Such zeal as the American Humanist associations have pointed out has led, according to them, to atheists overlooking behaviour in order to support zeal.


Are you of the opinion that the circles he has moved in should take him back into their bosom?

Each organisation will take a view based on their own individual policies and procedures. Remember that Krause was deemed to be on University business at the time of the incident and was therefore subject to disciplinary proceedings by his university. That is now complete and sanction applied by his employer. Whether any other organisation feels that they should (under their policies and procedures) also apply sanctions to him is up to them.

Just thinking Vlad, L K could be a mass murderer but it wouldn't make a shred of difference to the rightness or wrongness of his point of view about religion.
