Stephen Hawking: God DID NOT create the Universe, and God does not exist

In the new work, The Grand Design, Professor Stephen Hawking argues that the Big Bang, rather than occurring following the intervention of a divine being, was inevitable due to the law of gravity . “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.”

Stephen Hawking ’s story is a paradox: he does not believe in miracles, but at age 72 doctors said he was one, exceeding the life expectancy of a person with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

The question about creation has tormented man since time immemorial, and traditionally people have attributed it to a divine action.

Today, science has refined the Big Bang theory and the big explosion that gave rise to the universe is more than confirmed.

Thanks to the latest advances it is possible to understand exactly what happened microseconds later, that is, how galaxies and planets formed.

But there is still no definitive answer about what happened before, what triggered that outbreak and everything exists.

For centuries scientists and philosophers have tried to unravel these complex questions.

British cosmologist Stephen Hawking is one of the most dedicated minds on the subject.

As a guest of honor of the Starmus astrophysics festival on the island of Tenerife, his words caused controversy by reaffirming without contemplation that God does not exist.

Furthermore, in “The Grand Design”, which was co-written with American physicist Leonard Mlodinow, Hawking says according to a new series of theories, it is superfluous to think of a creator of the universe.

“The universe began with the Big Bang, which simply followed the inevitable law of physics,” Hawking writes. “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.

The universe didn’t need a God to begin; it was quite capable of launching its existence on its own,” says renowned physicist Stephen Hawking explains in his book, The Grand Design. In today’s world, where new theories emerge reapply, physicists are constantly adapting new ideologies and theories to new discoveries in their respective fields.

“…if we do discover a complete theory, it should in time be understandable in broad principle by everyone, not just a few scientists. Then we shall all, philosophers, scientists, and just ordinary people be able to take part in the discussion of the question of why it is that we and the universe exist. If we find the answer to that, it would be the ultimate triumph of human reason – for then we would know the mind of God.”― Stephen Hawking, A Brief History of Time

“The question is: is the way the universe began chosen by God for reasons we can’t understand or was it determined by a law of science? I believe the second,” he explained. “If you like, you can call the laws of science ‘God,’ but it wouldn’t be a personal God that you could meet, and ask questions.”

  1. if you have a watch, you must have a watch maker. Our universe and fine tuning is so complex that we can’t even explain it, yet some people believe it is just a random accident. Reality check. Nothing will never produce something. A big bang? Gotta have gases first… The Bible never attempts to say how God created…it just says HE created. That’s it…we can’t contain it. Meticulous prophesies have shown the Bible is true, experiential evidence (billions saved and change their lives), backed by history,…takes more faith to believe you randomly came from an explosion, became a piece of slime that grew fins and then became an ape, then became a human. …how absurd. Just take GOD at HIs word. HE loves you and died for you. Why? His nature requires punishment for sin…because GOD is perfect, he hates evil. So he made us but we have a sinful nature…so he had to make an eternal sacrifice…..just for you….and me, and everyone who accepts Him. There is nothing above Himself so the best thing God can give you is Himself for eternity. John 3:16
