L 5.19

“David Ramsay Steele reminds us that according to quantum mechanics ‘things begin to exist without any cause all the time’”. (p. 85)

Steele is asserting something that is highly debatable and most probably false. Virtual particles, vacuum fluctuation and the Casimir effect have been well documented and there is no evidence whatsoever that particles are coming into existence from nothing. To quote such an assertion as a fact is nothing more than an attempt to mislead people.
