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.

Have you read the one in your original post?

I'm at the beginning. However, I wasn't the one who just used one of Hawkings's books in an argument (the scientific kind).

*Hawking's

Incidentally, I think the publication the author of the link you sent me was referring to this - http://prl.aps.org/abstract/PRL/v17/i8/p444_1 Nowhere does it mention that Hawking meant god had been proven. The author substituted the word 'god' for the word 'singularity'. I suspect the author himself did not read the original article.

Have fun.

Incidentally, this might be easier to access for you since it's free access. If you can figure out what the terms mean, of course. http://adsabs.harvard.edu/full/1966ApJ...145..544H

And once again you descend to insult my intelligence.

This conversation is over.

Hey, I'm just saying even I had to look up the terms to see what they meant. Those are graduate-level physics terms. Have you even glanced at the article to see what I mean?

Your call.
