—Krauss is the author of the much heralded, A Universe From Nothing: Why There is Something Rather Than Nothing, in which he argues that it is highly plausible that we will soon be able to understand how the entire universe, including the fundamental laws of physics, can start from “absolutely nothing” without any need to appeal to a creator or supernatural agency.—

The problem with this whole statement is that it only demonstrates that Science is about “how”.

Christianity is about “why”. And that is the higher pursuit.

The second problem with Dawkin's statement is that it's not true. Not remotely.

An actual scientist wouldn't try to pretend that 'science will one day prove or observe something' which isn't currently proven or observed.

Dawkins isn't acting as a scientist when he claims this stuff, but as a polemicist.
