God not necessary for human beings - Hawking  
AWESOME. http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE6811FN20100902

"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," Hawking writes.

...FYI for people not in the know: Stephen Hawking is a physicist. Not a biologist, and by no means an evolutionary biologist.

Ah. Then it is now my turn to recommend a website. http://www.expelledexposed.com/

Ben Stein has been known to resort to unscrupulous means such as editing cunningly (For instance, if, to an intelligent question I answer, "No, I do not think this is the case; people are people, after all." he would probably have a voice-over "So, what do you think?" then insert "No, I do not think" and cut it off there. Or have you not come across this kind of ahem-Hollywood editing before?) answers from atheists and evolutionary biologists so as to paint them with a tar brush. Pardon my mixed metaphors.

... my original post does no such thing. I probably should have been more awake when posting it, but if I remember correctly, it was something along the lines of

"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,"


with a missing attribution of the sentence to Hawking and the clarification that Hawking is a theoretical physicist which now exists on my post.

And to science, the idea of spontaneous creation is very new indeed. And thus, I would like to ask the question - who created god?
