Theoretical physicist and atheist speaker and writer Lawrence Krauss, a professor at Arizona State University, has been put on paid leave by the University over sexual misconduct allegations.
Whether or not the allegations are true is not what this article is about. Christians make mistakes as well – we are sinful. That is why it is important to repent, follow Jesus Christ and obey the commandments.
It simply going to show the hypocrisy of atheist’s and particularly Lawrence Krauss who adamantly promotes atheistic morality, secularist worldview, blaspheming God and claiming “teaching creationism to children is child abuse.”
Please pray for this man that this episode in his life will bring about repentance. May God open Lawrence Krauss’ eyes to the truth of his evil mocking and blaspheming of God and that he turns away from the path of destruction.
Psalms 14:1 – The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.
Lawrence Krauss Under Fire For Sexual Misconduct
Krauss on Wednesday said the Feb. 22 article paints a false picture of him and his relationships with others “through a mosaic constructed largely out of anonymous hearsay and a web of often vague innuendo.”
At a Center for Inquiry event (CFI) in November 2006 a woman (named Hensley) who was trying to get a job networking with speakers said that Krauss entered her apartment and wouldn’t leave. He then tried to force himself on her and she fled the room.
“It was definitely predatory,” she said. “I didn’t want that to happen. It wasn’t consensual.”
Krauss told BuzzFeed News that what happened with Hensley in the hotel room was consensual. In that room, “we mutually decided, in a polite discussion in fact, that taking it any further would not be appropriate,” he told BuzzFeed News by email.
BuzzFeed News has learned that the incident with Hensley is one of many wide-ranging allegations of Krauss’s inappropriate behavior over the last decade — including groping women, ogling and making sexist jokes to undergrads, and telling an employee at Arizona State University, where he is a tenured professor, that he was going to buy her birth control so she didn’t inconvenience him with maternity leave.
Krauss of denies the allegations and is calling it libelous.
ASU has said that there have been no reports made to the University about any sexual misconduct but are investigating the matter to find out what is factual and what is not.
Lawrence Krauss Scandal Exposes Hypocrisy of Atheistic Morality
Lawrence Krauss in his book A Universe From Nothing, talks about how humans are made from stardust and that “…forget Jesus. The stars died so that you could be here today”.
One must wonder how any objective source of moral values can be recognized on such a view? Moreover, if such objective values could be realized, one must further question what dutiful obligation we would have to hold to them!
What must not be missed or taken for granted is Krauss’s inconsistency. He has responded to these allegations by denying their truthfulness. But on his view, why are the allegations wrong? If atheism is true, it seems just as reasonable that he accepts the charges and argue on the basis of an absent moral standard.
With no Creator to set the rules, there are no rules. Rather, to be consistent, he should contend that his choices are merely his preferences, but as he has already demonstrated, that will not be his play.
Instead, he will agree with our judicial system–which is ultimately rooted in the judgments and commandments of God–that it is immoral and disgraceful to harm another human being, and deny the charges against him.
Whether the allegations are true remains to be seen. What has been made clear, however, is that Romans 2:15 is still true.
Romans 2:15 – Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;
