God did not create the universe, says Hawking

The NewsDailey reports : God did not create the universe, says Hawking

LONDON, Sep. 2, 2010 (Reuters) — 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.

Makes us Humans kind of like star-dust or something like that i suppose . Kind of like how dust settles on a mantle piece and then slowly builds up over a very long time .

Anyway seems this pesky idea of Hawkings has really stirred up a bit of a storm of indignation from some theists .You know , not a whole lot unlike the indignation we also see emanating from Rentons or Exclusives or in fact most theists should anyone dare ! throw questions at any of their beloved beliefs. Oh the Shock ! … Oh the Horror ! ….  Heresies ! they cry .

I suppose not so unlike the fear and outrage that Bruce Hales might feel while feeling his popular position is come under fire of those who might even dare ! to partake in some cross-examination of matters of interest . Only believe !. Good saints .. only believe !! is the general cry from the podium or pulpit .

Strange ? how no such outrage seems to quickly emanate from this same group when science folk happen to discuss new ideas about medication or ideas for modern fuels . It’s almost as if faith has a type of inbuilt allergy to any new ideas about faith …L.o.L

Anyway here is an article by the DailyMail : Archbishop of Canterbury hits back after Stephen Hawking insists God did NOT create the universe

The Archbishop of Canterbury has led a religious backlash after Britain’s most famous scientist declared God redundant.

Dr Rowan Williams dismissed Professor Stephen Hawking’s findings that modern physics leaves no room for a Creator and science could explain the origins of the universe.

In The Grand Design, the best-selling author concludes: ‘Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing.

GGGGrrrrrrrr how id like to chew that pesky Hawkings ears off !!!

But its only a theory! Father ummm Padre ! ummm Friar Tuck ! ummm M.O.G ! ummmm Whats-his-handle !  …..   Cant we play nice ??
Ahhh ….. Faith …. aint it lovely !! .

Dare ye question !!

About ExEB

I'm a agnostic/atheist . Interested in learning more about science. I also am an "ex-member" of a group most publicly known within modern times, as the Exclusive Brethren. Whom are an off-shoot of the original Plymouth Brethren group. I'd say it likely my personality could possibly be described as quirky.You know ,as in being , unconventional , unorthodox , unusual, off-centre, strange, bizarre, weird, peculiar, odd, freakish, outlandish, offbeat, out of the ordinary, bohemian, alternative, zany I'm sure iv'e been classed as "crazy" . Many times But then, being born into a group like the exclusive brethren. Doesn't lend itself ? to tend to produce things considered as being "very normal" .Does it I escaped the Exclusive Brethren cult as a 15 year old teenager. Even since that time iv'e been trying to adjust to living life outside the cult. With much of my life being lived within the genre of "wild colonial boy" style. In the general sense of a church-rebel picking and choosing from role models who appeared within-life along the way. But as the exclusive brethren cult had traditionally maintained a general church-rule , of need to shun and totally excommunicate any ex member of their group.Treating such people as if they were dead. Thus this situation developed more to do with my need of following traditionally enforced church-rule , as apposed to it being so much about "life-choices". Certain emotional experiences, and parts of life in general, have led to me adopting a sense of low self esteem. Which is a situation i still deal with from time to time. Through my ongoing interest in science. I find i am able to gather more information to help me better understand my situation. Much about life for me, has often seemed like a massive puzzle.With many missing pieces.

    I’ll never understand why people are happy about being a freak accident? The only positive thing about this stance is that if your right you wont have to answer to God. But if there is a God who created everything (?) whats so bad about being held accountable to Him?

    later Holmes, feeno

      Some people might not be happy about being human Feeno ,what do you suggest they pretend they are Gods ?. You make it sound like people wish to simply choose to be some freak accident .Why do you suppose it might not be a problem that people wish to try and choose God created humans ? .What will good will your faith in it do if its actually false ? . Its sure caused plenty of problems! which is often whats to be expected of lies and deceit !.

      Im not afraid of God if he exists .If God actually exists id say its pretty safe call to say it seems he dont really want us humans knowing about him …In which case maybe it might be the theists ! who should honestly be needing to worry ..After all its the theists guess-work of guessing Gods that caused all sort of extreme harm and great nastiness!.

      But you theist are so busy feeling all great about your faith ,and devoted to all the charisma ,you most likely dont bother to considder such things huh? …No you far to busy thinking atheists just trying to escape Gods …Such a utterly foolish idea . As if atheist are blatantly dumb and utterly thick ! ..As to think one might be able to escape judgement of God just by acting like a ostrich and putting ones head in the sand… and trying to believe a God that exist ,dont exist .

      Your idea it dont even meet with any real logic or common sense Feeno .

      You can be sure after what i and plenty of others have experienced ..Its not Gods that we fear …Its the nutty fruit-cake theists which are far far more scary and bloody dangerous …L.o.L

      Infact i hope a God exist …Because seeing as a God who could create a whole universe with such ease ..obviously wishes to keep himself hidden …. If he exists im picking its a pretty good bet …Plenty of theist are going to receive one jolly good talley up when they get to meet him ! …L.o.L . They will be held to account for all the harm their years and years of freaky guess work cased many people.

      You are dreaming my friend if you really think atheist fear existence of Gods.

      What been so positive about Godly guess work Feen ? …We have Christians hating Muslims and Muslims hating Christians …And Israel thinking they is the chosen people and the neighbours thinking them and their God is the devil.

      What do you do Feen …Do you close your eyes and shut your ears and pretend you dont see or hear all these nasty matters caused by faith guess work.

      By jingos my friend ….I suggest if anything it is a theist who needs to be most fearful

    • ExEB says:

      If i were a theist ..i would start praying ! a God dont actually exist .

      Because its obvious if God actually exists , then he obviously didnt want us humans to know about it.

      A God that can create a whole universe! ,sure dont need humans to guess and try and let humans know who he might be , as God could quite easily take care of this simple job himself.

      To believe in your God Feeno , you would need to believe in a God who would want to cause some people to suffer great harm and hardship in the name of God/faith .

      That is not some belief i would personally be interested in having any involvement in promoting .

      If you feel happy promoting it .. So be it …. By doing so in my opinion i suggest you also need to take on part of the responsibility for all that has occured through people doing such things .

      That my friend is not a responsibility im too keen on sharing any part in .Whether God exists or God doesnt exist
