Professor Stephen Hawkings tells the bipedal primates with brains: “There is no place for God in theories on the creation of the Universe”

For the last few centuries Science and Religion have been playing the equivalent of a game of strip-poker.

Religion is now down-to-its last-vestiges of clothing (a frilly pair of woman’s panties as worn by The Pope) and Science is about to place it’s hand, a Royal Flush, on-to the table.

Rather than the conventional deck these cards come embossed with a simple statement of what is about to be revealed as fact.


Read some excepts from Hawkings new book ‘The Grand Design’:

“That makes the coincidences of our planetary conditions - the single Sun, the lucky combination of Earth-Sun distance and solar mass - far less remarkable, and far less compelling as evidence that the Earth was carefully designed just to please us human beings."

"Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing.”

“Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the universe exists, why we exist.”

"It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper and set the universe going."

This really shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who either has read his previous books or who has kept up with modern cosmology, but I'm glad he's putting it out there anew. I've pre-ordered the book!

p.s. - I think you mean "Hawking".
