Krauss speaking fluently and persuasively about what he's professionally best known for:

I wonder how appropriate this is here. Firstly If it is science, that being his profession then it should be in the science and technology section rather than here. Secondly if this had been a similar thread on , say, Kevin Spacey would anyone have put links to two of his greatest performances and risk looking like endorsing a reputation? I don't know but this notion of shunning works and performances seems topical March 2019.

Why is a discussion of a person's alleged sexual misconduct appropriate in the theism and atheism section?

The same reason the sexual misconduct of Christian persons is appropriate on the Christian section I would imagine.


To support a forum for the discussion of Christian sexual misconduct and refuse one for atheist behaviour of any stripe would smack of censorship and suppression don't you think?


Don't forget the action of several antitheist and atheist groups against sexual misconduct was praised on this thread. I didn't notice objection to that.

It's traditional
Just like the tradition of not challenging that tradition.

And yet here we are with people debating whether the same should be applied to figures in the antitheist community....and yes. Before we go through the rigmarole Krauss is a self announced antitheist.

What's traditional? That church officials sexually assault children or that we talk about it in the Christian section of the forum?
