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.
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 !!
