When people ask…

When people ask me if a god created the universe, I tell them that the question itself makes no sense. Time didn’t exist before the big bang, so there is no time for god to make the universe in. It’s like asking directions to the edge of the earth; The Earth is a sphere; it doesn’t have an edge; so looking for it is a futile exercise. We are each free to believe what we want, and it’s my view that the simplest explanation is; there is no god. No one created our universe,and no one directs our fate. This leads me to a profound realization; There is probably no heaven, and no afterlife either. We have this one life to appreciate the grand design of the universe, and for that I am extremely grateful.
-Stephen Hawking

  1. You propose a very clear contradiction by supposing that God could be stymied by his own Creation.You suppose God can create a rock that he cannot lift.

    If Hawking is so intelligent as we talk about the subject of God, ask Hawking if he can tell us where 95% of the matter and energy is in the universe…it’s called dark energy and dark matter. We just need him to find it for us…..its everywhere supposedly….Hawking, finding it somewhere.

    1. Believe me or not, Science has done the best so far and in the future it will continue to do this. It’s not just about Stephen Hawking or Einstein. There are some unsung hero’s there who have discovered many things but people don’t know about them. Rather than fighting wars against nations we should unite as a single team and find out why we exist. ‘Question Everything.’

      1. Should all of us “believing you are not” take it all our faith? Should we take it on faith that there are unsung heroes who have discovered many things with no God interceding? That single team that you speak of, is that after the order of Stalin? Or perhaps your referring to some other godless ruler. You probably don’t realize how really ridiculous you sound.
