The Discovery Channel launched a documentary featuring British theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking about his thoughts about the universe and the existence of aliens.
Hawking noted that the existence of aliens is likely to exist but also stressed that humans would be pushed into a detrimental situation once there is contact with them.
The documentary entitled ‘Into the Universe with Stephen Hawking’ took several years in order to materialize along with other episodes entitled ‘Aliens’, ‘Time Travel’ and ‘The Story of Everything’. The documentaries have been aired on the Discovery Channel since April 25.
Stephen Hawking has been suffering from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, in which he was diagnosed of such sickness almost 50 years ago. It limited his speech and mobility but the disabilities never got into his way of still sharing his brilliant theories.
Hawking Says God Did Not Create the Universe – Stephen Hawking is creating a heavy discussion and buzz after his latest book, “The Grand Design” claims that God did not create the universe and the “Big Bang” was an inevitable consequence of the law of physics.
The book, “The Grand Design” was authored by renowned Britis theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking and is co-authored by U.S. physicist Leonard Mlodinow.
Hawking added in his interview by The Times Newspaper that based on a new series of theories a creator of the universe was redundant. “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,” says Hawking.
Hawking and his book will surely earn a lot of ire and debate from the Catholic Church and perhaps even from Muslims and other religions. The basic tenet of the book clearly promotes atheism and denies the existence of a God.
Stephen Hawking has won global recognition for his 1998 book “”A Brief History of Time.” He is also known for his work on black holes, cosmology and quantum gravity.
“The Grand Design” is due to go on sale next week.
For our readers we leave you a question, what do you think did God created the universe or not? Share us your views.
Do you believe in Aliens? You may have probably seen some videos of Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) in one way or another. Or you may have probably heard of the mysteries of the Crop Circles in which some of them are believed to have been made by Aliens.
British theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking best known for his bestselling book “The Brief History of Time” speaks in a new Discovery Channel special entitled ‘Into the Universe with Stephen Hawking: Aliens’ in which he talks the possibility of the existence of aliens and extraterrestial life here on Earth with varying sizes from as small as microbes to as large as it can possibly conquer not only our planet Earth but also the whole universe.
In this show, Discovery Channel asks “Are We Alone?” as it tackles an eye-popping journey from the moons of Jupiter to a galaxy perhaps not so far, far away in search of alien life. Viewers may expect to see what aliens might look like, question what it means to be alive, and calculate the odds of making contact.
Accordingly, Stephen Hawkings uses his intellect in mathematics to prove his assumptions that aliens may exist saying: “To my mathematical brain, the numbers alone make thinking about aliens perfectly rational. The real challenge is to work out what aliens might actually be like.”
He also said that humans should try to avoid any contact with the aliens because it can be devastating in humanity saying: “If aliens visit us, the outcome would be much as when Columbus landed in America, which didn’t turn out well for the Native Americans.”
