Stephen Hawking: God Is Dead

Stephen Hawking says that God does not exist

Professor Stephen Hawking has always been fairly ambiguous on the question of God or an afterlife … until recently. In an interview with Spain’s El Mundo, the astrophysicist declared that there is no God. 

Reflecting on the advancement of science, Hawking said that there is no longer a need for a supreme being to explain the existence of things.

Before we understand science, it is natural to believe that God created the universe. But now science offers a more convincing explanation,” he told them. reports:

I’m not sure whether there was a specific moment in which science overtook the deistic explanation of existence. However, El Mundo pressed him on the suggestion in “A Brief History of Time” that a unifying theory of science would help mankind “know the mind of God.”

Hawking now explained: “What I meant by ‘we would know the mind of God’ is, we would know everything that God would know, if there were a God. Which there isn’t. I’m an atheist.”

He added: “Religion believes in miracles, but these aren’t compatible with science.”

Perhaps. But some look at, for example, the human eye and wonder how that exciting ball of jelly could have come about scientifically.

Hawking’s been tending toward such an absolute pronouncement for a while. In a speech last year, he offered an explanation of how the world came to being without God. He mused: “What was God doing before the divine creation? Was he preparing hell for people who asked such questions?”

I do worry, though, about Hawking’s sweetly divine faith in humanity. He told El Mundo: “In my opinion, there is no aspect of reality beyond the reach of the human mind.”

If that’s true, the human mind still has to develop exponentially to explain everyday phenomena, such as social networking. And then there’s Hawking’s insistence that his speech synthesizer, which gives him a curiously American accent, has had this consequence: “With the American accent, I’ve had far more success with women.”

We definitely need some serious research to explain that.

    One can go through it and decide for oneself whether God is actually needed for the universe or not.

    A fool says in his heart there is no God. Morover this paraplegic is a total fruitcake who makes up everything. And he knows very well no one in his lifetimes or many lifetimes can verify his outlandish bullshit theories. Hes been riding thye pitty-train a long time. I also blame the throng of libtards who uplift this nutcase on a high stool. If a normal healthy person with and over active imagination comes up with the same kind of nonsense and unverifiable fanatasies, he would NOT get the same attention and veneration. I dont feel sorry for this moron and I certainly dont believe all teh crap he comes with.

    No one knows if God exists. He does if, like me , you have faith in scriptural history and believe in the bible. OK ! I know that it is a composition of many scholars over 20 centuries and is subject to interpretation. I choose my right to free will and opt for it is a God breathed account for my life. Both me and Hawking will both ,one day, know the truth. If he is right then all I have wasted is the last 40 years since I became a Christian. If I am right, Hawking has eternity to regret his decision.
