Earth to Lawrence Krauss

From Manuel Alfonseca, here. 

Second: out of nothing one can create nothing.Nothing does not exist, as we know since the time of Parmenides. As usual, nothing is confused with the vacuum. A vacuum is not nothing, because it has several qualities (space, time, energy, existence) that nothing does not have.

Even more basic, the quantum vacuum presumes quantum theory which is not nothing.
In fact, all physical theories including quantum mechanics presume an existent universe of things.
Physics is just accounting. It accounts for the correlation between things now and things later (or previously). It can not account for the things itself.

Quantum particles do not prove something fro, nothing

QMP's do not pop out of nothing they combine from previous particles. There is no explanation as to where those particles (vacuum flux) come from.
