This memo is in regards to the recently published contribution by Ambjorn J. et al. "Planckian Birth of Quantum de Sitter Universe" PRL 100, 091304 (2008). The article claims that "causal dynamical triangulation" enables a consistent regularization of quantum gravity. A "quantum universe" emerging from a nonperturbative sum over geometries is alleged to recover "with high accuracy a fourdimensional de Sitter space-time". On closer examination, the approach is built on many objectionable premises
