Stephen Hawking wrongly imagines himself qualified to pontificate on matters theological, according to a new book he’s foisting on a gullible and easily misguided public.
God did not create the universe and the “Big Bang” was an inevitable consequence of the laws of physics, the eminent British theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking argues in a new book. In “The Grand Design,” co-authored with U.S. physicist Leonard Mlodinow, Hawking says a new series of theories made a creator of the universe redundant, according to the Times newspaper which published extracts on Thursday. “Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing. Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the universe exists, why we exist,” Hawking writes.
It’s sad when scientists pretend to know things they don’t, and can’t. Hawking should concentrate his efforts on things he actually knows about instead of dabbling in the field of theology where he is an inept and immobile dilettante. Personally, I wouldn’t buy a used car from the guy much less a theory of beginnings.
