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.
