Hold on, this can't be right. A clip with 'God' in the title and no insightful, grammatically correct, perfectly spelled insight from Rt. Hon. SamAberdeenQC. DFC. PhD. VD and Scar? I wanna hear "And the Angle of the Lard while smiite the blasfeemers and condem them all to Hill in his infinit mersey" or some such drivel.

Weren't you listening to the clip? Quantum Mechanics man. If it can happen, it WILL happen. Good things come to those who wait, but equal ammounts of bad shit do too.

Hawking has an important point - any universe can exist self-contained. But still he does not explain where the laws of quantum mechanics come from. Thus this is just another step of the regressus ad infinitum... so why not just agree that people will never agree on whether a god (or any other supernatural entity) actually exists and move on? There are enough thrilling things to be discovered by science, regardless of discussing god.

This is basically a variation of the same circular argument used by religious fundamentalists- God exists because he does. This is like the fish in the aquarium figuring out that there is no human necessary to buy an aquarium because the aquarium can spontaneously create itself. I guess we can close down all the universities and churches since Stevie H. has everything figured out. Brilliant.
