Stephen Hawkings Big Question

 

"Do I have faith?" he writes in Brief Answers to the Big Questions. "We are each free to believe what we want, and it's my view that the simplest explanation is that there is no God. No one created the universe, and no one directs our fate."

 

Hawking goes on to say that this realization made him decide belief in an afterlife was just "wishful thinking" and that "when we die, we return to dust."

so much I wish to ask you now

much more than before when

you dabbled merely in science

but now that you philosophise

Id really like to ask you how you could know

“There is no God”

when if you could not see to prove Him to be

how could you unseeing prove Him not to be

 

and even more Id like to ask you now

if you still think God is a wishful thought

 

Peter Rhebergens Big Answer

 

all that exists contends that He is

before the beginning, after the end

His glory, power and majesty evident

in every single thing, great or greater

His being less in doubt than our own

His the life from which ours descends
