Stephen Hawking: God Did Not Create The Universe

In Books, Physics, Science on September 2, 2010 at 10:04 PM

The debate over whether a divine being has shaped the universe we live in has gone on before the dawn of history. Even after we have come to (partially) understand the natural laws which (we think) govern our universe, we still wonder whether these laws are simply the culmination of random chance, or the workings of a sentient entity. Wonder no more, says Stephen hawking.

Hawking, world renown physicist, and someone who’s officially way smarter than us, argues in his new book that god did not create the universe of the things that reside in it. In “The Grand Design”, Hawking asserts “the universe can and will create itself from nothing.”

Pretty bold statement. One that TS is sure is going to be quoted by atheists a lot in the near future, and derided by religious folk.Anyone  who wants to read the whole book will have to pick up on copy on September 7th.
