British Professor Stephan Hawking is smart. Hawking is arguably the Albert Einstein of this generation so when he speaks, people listen.
So listen up Bible thumpers. Stephen Hawking says universe was not created by God.
God did not create the universe, the man who is arguably Britain’s most famous living scientist says in a forthcoming book. 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.
With the insight and precision we’ve come to expect, Hawking observes:
If oxen and horses and lions had hands and were able to draw with their hands and do the same things as men, horses would draw the shapes of gods to look like horses and oxen to look like oxen, and each would make the gods’ bodies have the same shape as they themselves had.
A creator is “not necessary.” Got that, Bible thumpers?
