Stephen Hawking or God: Who Do You Believe?
Written By: Bob Kellemen | Posted: Monday, September 13th, 2010
In my post Stephen Hawking: Brilliant But Foolish, I shared what God thinks of Stephen Hawking. In his upcoming book, The Grand Design, Hawking tells what he thinks of God. So, in today's post, readers have a life-altering, eternal choice to make: Hawking or God: who do you believe?
In The Grand Design, Hawking posits that given the existence of gravity, "the universe can and will create itself from nothing." In excerpts released this weekend, he continues, "Spontaneous creation is the reason why there is something rather than nothing, why the universe exists, why we exist." His book, as the title suggests, is an attempt to answer "the ultimate questions of life." Hawking also opines that "it is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper [fuse] and set the universe going." Thus, for him, there is no need for God to explain existence.
