The View From 1776

Did Stephen Hawking Prove Anything?

Hawking’s latest book “finesses” the question of Who or what created the universe by blandly proclaiming that the universe was created by nothing out of nothing. 

Presuming, as atheists like Hawking do, the independent existence of the laws of physics and chemistry doesn’t even begin to approach the complex facts known to date.  The laws themselves had to originate somewhere outside of and prior to the existence of our universe.  Only a Mind, a Being, of surpassing intelligence could have created those laws and the universe.
