Stephen Hawking, great theory, but you're wrong! Comments

World-renown physicist and author, Stephen Hawking, gave a lecture last night at Pasadena's California Institute of Technology astoundingly claiming that God wasn't needed to create the universe, and that instead physical laws would cause the universe to spontaneously appear. Continue Reading

    No... You are wrong.... Hawkings doesn't leave out the possibility there is a God... He just suggests that the universe could have been possible without him

    Definitely made me think. While I firmly believe in Physics to explain the how the universe works I had never thought of the why.

    Hawking may be brilliant, but that does not necessarily mean he is correct. In fact, he is probably incorrect about many things. But at least he has the courage to face reality and offer explanations about what he sees.

    God lovers and bible-thumpers, on the other hand, seem to have a difficult time facing reality as it really is. And why should they even face reality to begin with? After all, they have been taught to accept fairy tales and lies as the truth.

    Sad, indeed.

    So who created God? Or did He spantaneously choose to start to exist?

    I guess you can use the "Cuz God said so" to answer every question.

    God is a unnecessary part of the equation, and has not place in it. Feel free to believe what you want but your analysis is a failure of science and logic. So don't pretend to refute something you have no idea about.

    While I'm pretty sure this won't make it through your admins, I respectfully submit that the Catholic Church does not have a great history when it comes to accepting scientific theories or findings.

    Think Galileo.

    In the growing darkness of this nation and the world, do we faithful stand out from it like stars in the night sky or stand against it like The Cross?

    Abba come.
    Again I pray my prayer:
    "God our father, in the name of our King, Jesus the Christ, your son, the WORD, the Light of creation, through the presence of the Holy Spirit that connects us all, please, for the sake of ending the suffering of everyone everywhere, for the sake of YOUR great name and reputation and for the sake of the fulfillment of YOUR promise spoken by faithful from Adam to the last living soul, from the Prophets and Jesus the Christ and the apostles and all who have spoken your promise in faith, please, please, please, send to the world again the Christ sooner rather than later so that your promised day of righteous justice in love will once and for all dawn on this earth and drive suffering and darkness from your creation in whatever form it may become. Abba, please send us again your Son for if there is much more delay I witness from my flesh that soon there will be no more flesh remaining alive to be saved and the flow of Good Souls home to you my Lord will cease forever. But I know that your victory, my God, is assured. Please let dawn that glorious Day that I know will be at your appointed time when Christ will rule creation and all living souls will live in peace and harmony with YOU and each other, my Lord. God, let YOUR will be done.

    AMEN"

    Well, all you've really stated that he didn't prove his point - that being that the Universe was not created by a god. But then you do nothing to prove yours. Speculating about the various ways that a god might have created the Universe is not proof that a god did so. The best you can say is that he didn't prove his point; not that he's wrong.

    God was created by man as a means to control men, not the other way around. For thousands of years religions and gods have been used to explain the things that science could not. Now that science and technology can explain most of those things, and has disproven the fairytales of old There is no longer any use for religion. In our modern world it is used more for bad than good anyways, how many more millions of people need to die for your false gods?
