Stephen Hawking lays out case for Big Bang without God

Stephen Hawking lays out case for Big Bang without God

By Rod Pyle

PASADENA, Calif. — Our universe didn't need any divine help to burst into being, famed cosmologist Stephen Hawking told a packed house here at the California Institute of Technology Tuesday night.

Many people had begun queuing up for free tickets to Hawking's 8:00 p.m lecture, titled "The Origin of the Universe," 12 hours earlier. By 6:00 p.m. local time, the line was about a quarter-mile long.

Also on NBC News.com: Stephen Hawking says God’s not needed. So what?

A second auditorium and a Jumbotron-equipped lawn, which itself was jammed with an estimated 1,000 viewers, were needed to handle the crowd. At least one person was observed offering $1,000 for a ticket, with no success. [Big Bang to Now in 10 Easy Steps]

Stephen Hawking began the event by reciting an African creation myth, and rapidly moved on to big questions such as, Why are we here?


To quote Jimmy Durante, Everybody wants to get into the act.
RE: Stephen Hawking lays out case for Big Bang without God
For some reason Hawkin's outspoken Atheism gets thoroughly ignored by the media. A Brief History of Time is a book that spends a huge amount of time propounding Atheism. Hawkings is held in such high regard by general society and Atheists in such low regard that they just decide to entirely ignore the fact he's been a very outspoken Atheist his entire career.
