Professor Hawking claims God wasn’t needed for creation, what do you think?

author avatar by 14 years ago

There is no place for God in theories on the creation of the Universe, Professor Stephen Hawking has said in his new book The Grand Design.

He had previously argued belief in a creator was not incompatible with science but in a new book, he concludes the Big Bang was an inevitable consequence of the laws of physics.

We sent our reporters out onto the street to find out what you thought about Professor Hawking claiming God is essentially redundant in all matters of creation.

Woman on the Street“Well, who am I going to believe? An octogenarian virgin who goes around in a frock and a big pointy hat, or one of the most learned academics of our generation? It’s the one who talks to Jesus, obviously.”

Man on the Street“Bullshit. He’s only saying that because God put him in a wheelchair.  Which is fair enough, I suppose.”

Will Hatton, Catholic

Man on the Street“Look, I’ve made an entire career out of standing around looking busy whilst not directly contributing to anything in any way whatsoever, so I don’t see why God couldn’t have been doing exactly the same thing.”

Rick Matthews, Seventh Day Adventist

Woman on the Street“Maybe Professor Hawking and the Pope should have an arm wrestle to settle this once and for all?”
