Hello friends,i have watched in Discovery channel that Famous physicist Stephen hawking is saying that God did not create the universe.He says that Scientific explanation can now explain how universe has been created and this leaves god because god didn't created nothing.This is the opinion of Stephen Hawking.Do you agree with it??

I think that human beings need beliefs and along the centuries there have been many different kinds of Gods. So we have to start out by asking ourselves what are we talking about. And then after that, we must try to understand the word creation. I don`t believe that the universe was created in the same way as I make a pie in the oven. It should be understood as a metaphor.

There is always a paradox.if universe was created by like what you said ingredients,then what created the ingredients?? Always this happens. We cannot end this paradox. So In order to solve the problem we are forced to accept that universe was created out of nothing!! This is the only solution.Though this seems absurd now,i think new advances in the field of theoretical physics will give this conclusion that universe was created out of nothing...

That`s one of the reasons wht I`m an agnostic. I refuse to think about some things that are quite beyond my power. I prefer to think about what I can understand and even help get better.

My religious heart disagrees with him,but my brains says,he might be true. I always wonder about why the universe can't create itself,it may sound illogical but if the God who is the creator can create himself from nothingness,then why the universe can't just create itself.This is a debatable topic..So I believe it like this "universe is god himself,god/universe has the power to create itself" This doesn't answer the "why" part,If nothing gets created we wouldn't be here at mylot.So its our destiny to post and comment on mylot,so our collective destiny put so much pressure on nothingness to create something we call universe.

Stephen Hawking is a mentally ill person. He can not patient on trial / test that God gave to him. He was angry with God because God did not give him the perfect physical as the other scientists. I hope you not believe or follow the opinion of people mad, disappointed and angry with God, too ... Trust me ... God is the creator of the real

The question is simple, but to answer is not easy. I will try to make this as simple as possible. Many people have been asking if humans are descended from apes. There is so called theory of Evolution from Darwin where we have been learning about it in biology class. Somehow, last year or two years ago, a school or a county in Kansas (I believe) is trying to reject the whole idea of theory of evolution. When it comes to science, lots of discovery or explanation would not agree with spiritual findings. Take the Christian perspective, the Bible never mentions or hardly mention dinosaurs. Did Noah's flood happen all around the globe? Are we part of 12 tribes of Israel? There are tons of questions that many would be curious. It comes down to the idea of what you believe in. I believe in God. I believe in the POWER of all the POWER. There is something that is beyond reach (unreachable) and unexplainable even with the latest technology and findings. Have you ever thought how everything started? The galaxy, the solar system, the planets, ..... It does not mean that I disagree with Stephen Hawking and other scientist. Anything is possible. This 'anything is possible' somehow goes back to the idea that there is POWER of all the POWER.

Yes, universe can't be created just like what the Bible says, i believe that there's a particular phenomenon on how it is created

I don't agree with it. I believe in what in what is based on the Bible and not in any human's opinion. People like him will always be there to prove that God does not exist but the more they learn things, the more they come to know how deep and complicated the works of God above... The universe was amazingly created, would you believe that there was no creator for it? Every house built that you can see now has someone who construct it. It didn't come by chance. Scientist always want to associate their names with their discoveries...Isn't logical to think that there is also a creator of our universe? Not all things we have now can be seen like the air we breath but it doesn't mean their non existence. People who believe that there is no creator of our universe only believe what their eyes can see.

I see this as one of those question as a kid where you can never really answer it because it on what ever you feel is right based on what you know. Like which came first the chicken or the egg we may never know. So weather god created the universe or not I can't say. I can't say god didn't or did but I can't say that some comic event happen that comes all of this to start. I learn more towards Science on this one because its hard for me to believe that just one person created the universe and our exist in the world.

Indeed I do agree with it. There is no way a being created our universe and came to this one planet and told us about it for generations and then disappeared. Science Explains each and every aspect of the creation of the universe. Whether humanity will accept them as facts is up to society. Humans created the story of the creation of the universe to create sanity in society. I do not believe it is possible at all for some magical being to go and create an entire society and life.
