Posted on 09/25/2010 8:00:30 AM PDT by Conservative Coulter Fan
God didn't create the universe, Stephen Hawking says in his latest book, "A Grand Design."
Rather, the renowned physicist writes, "Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing."
Everything created from nothing? The assertion begged a reply from the author of "Nothing Created Everything: The Scientific Impossibility of Atheistic Evolution."
"It is embarrassingly unscientific to speak of anything creating itself from nothing," said Ray Comfort, a best-selling author and acclaimed minister who's confronted and confounded some of the world's most accomplished atheists. "Common sense says that if something possessed the ability to create itself from nothing, then that something wasn't nothing; it was something a very intelligent creative power of some sort."
Hawking commits several "greater fallacies of logic," says Comfort.

Hawkings is a very clever man, and has done some great work in pushing back the boundaries of Human knowledge. But there still are boundaries. For example, his contention is that something can be created from nothing “because there is a law such as a gravity”. So why is there a law such as gravity then? Why are the laws of physics like what we see?
Hawking is a talentless hack
Maybe this is is God's way of having a laugh at the expense of these 2. They are following this part of Scripture quite "faithfully" (almost).
relativity is a scam, too. unless I misunderstand it, which I suppose is a remote possibility.
His science has been polluted by extreme anger toward God so he has self-limited his own God-given, brilliant intelligence.
Most atheists I know are just really, really POed at God so they try really hard to ignore him and try really hard to convince others that he doesn’t exist at all.
‘...the renowned physicist writes, “Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing.” ‘
What was so special about 14 billion years ago? Why didn’t the universe create itself out of nothing during the eternity prior to that time? And why aren’t new universes creating themselves out of nothing all around us?
A logical Atheist is an oxymoron. Atheism itself demands that reason and logic are false. They do this by denying the existence of the supernatural, but it is only the supernatural than can view the natural objectively, and only the supernatural that can truly reason.
Hawkins recognizes that law is needed but does not want to called the law giver, God. He does recognize how to sell books.
It would be simpler to refute Hawking by noting a scientist shouldn’t confuse opinion with data. Physics cannot speak to the time before the Big Bang because there is no data. You can’t measure the physical universe when there is no physical universe to measure. Without data you can’t prove one approach or disprove another. This places Hawking in the arena of philosophy - not science. And as a philosopher I don’t see Hawking as entitled to more weight then others.
Hawking could simply have said as a matter of Occam’s razor, it’s more reasonable to conceive a universe arising from “nothing” then a supreme all knowing all powerful sentiment being arising from “nothing” who THEN creates the physical universe. And let it go at that without making such absolutist and unprovable statements as to what “did” occur. But he didn’t.
The whole thing is stupid.
by elevating the experiential to the absolute.
Itself! Wudooeye need to do, draw you a picture?!
The people of this country CAN create something from nothing... just as it has in creating a President out of a no-count, non-effectual nothing like Obama.
Does a vote record of endless ‘present’s add up to anything?
God came first. Got it. Who made God?
What is Hawking’s great achievement?
God was, is and always will be. No one made God.
Funny, my statement of belief is just as much of a statement of belief as Hawking's belief in nothing making something.
Put down the remote and possibility of it having occurred would have been less possible.
For instance, what is it that you think is a scam: general relativity or special relativity?
