One of my favorite physicists is Lawrence Krause. Honestly, I don't know much about his personal life (aside from him being the nerdiest cool person in any given room, which is not the same as Neil Degrasse Tyson who is the coolest nerd in any given room), but whenever he speaks about science I stand in awe. He is like a more accessible Stephen Hawking. Not to mention Krause can communicate more easily and more readily than Hawking, allowing him to make public appearances. One of the first and coolest things I have seen of him, is a lecture he gave about how a universe can spontaneously appear, which would make a god or prime mover (the deist argument) unnecessary for the Big Bang.

Another one of my favorites is a speech he gave at a protest outside of a creation museum in Kentucky, where they desecrate science with exhibits displaying humans and friendly vegetarian velociraptors and a saddle-wearing triceratops cohabiting the earth prior to the Flood. And why not after the Flood? The boat was full... duh!
