Hawking said: “Because there is a law such as gravity, the Universe can and will create itself from nothing.

So, why is there a law such as gravity? Mr Hawking is a smart man (although not a wise one) and he has succeeded in pushing back the boundaries of "starting points" more than most. But he has not explained everything. There is always a "why".

That's true, he's only helped push back boundaries. We have yet to reach the root answers. Which is not the same as saying we never will.

But religion only pushes back the boundary too, and it does it based on speculation on unfounded belief.
