Are you still wondering if God do exist? Does Stephen Hawking make it any clearer?

Are you still wondering if God do exist? Does Stephen Hawking make it any clearer?

If I were a scientist, I’d stick to the Goldman Sachs principle: bet on both sides.

“Believe in science, believe in God” seems to cover all the possibilities and gives you the best chance for a cheery afterlife.

Stephen Hawking comes right out and says it. He is an atheist.

Stephen Hawking makes it clear: There is no God

The physicist explains that science now offers more convincing explanations for existence. He is therefore an atheist

For a time, it was thought that astrophysicist Stephen Hawking had also left a tiny gap in his credo window for a magical deity. However, he has now come out and declared that there is No God.

He gave an interview to Spain’s El Mundo in which he expressed his firm belief that el mundo (the world) was the work of scientifically explainable phenomena, not of a supreme being.

Hawking said: “Before we understand science, it is natural to believe that God created the universe. But now science offers a more convincing explanation.”

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.”

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.” (Still, reality does exist even for people whose brain are handicapped and cannot discriminate the real from the fiction)

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.

Note: Who cares for a definite answer except those who have vested interest in all these discussions that have no serious resolutions? Give mankind a break from illusory myths and all these manipulations working on his fears and weaknesses.
