Stephen Hawking Declares That Science Can Prove GodDoes Not Exist
Stephen Hawking has declared that there is no God and he
states that miracles stemming out of religious beliefs are
“not compatible with science”.
The renowned astrophysicist gave an interview to Spanish
newspaper El Mundo in which he explained his firm belief
that the universe was the work of scientifically explainable
phenomena and not of a supreme being, reports CNET.
“Before we understand science, it is natural to believe that
God created the universe. But now science offers a more
convincing explanation,” Hawking said.
When El Mundo questioned him about the suggestion in his
1988 book A Brief History Of Time that a unifying theory of
science would help mankind “know the mind of God”,
“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.
“In my opinion, there is no aspect of reality beyond the
reach of the human mind.”
This is not the first time Hawking has expressed his views on
the subject of God’s existence.
During a speech last year, he offered an explanation of how
the world came to being without God. He asked: “What was
God doing before the divine creation? Was he preparing hell
for people who asked such questions?”
