Theory of a leading physicist, Stephen Hawking, that God had nothing to do with the creation of the universe has invited strong reactions from the clergy in England. According to them, Hawking’s theory can not be accepted as truth more than anything else to disturb the faith of others.
Head of the Anglican Church, Rowan Williams, Hawking can not accept the argument that the universe could be created without the intervention of God. According to Williams, since the first humans to believe that God created the universe.
“Believing in God is not just filling a gap in explaining how it related to other things in the universe,” Williams said in the magazine “Eureka” published by The Times.
“Confidence is what explains that there is an element that is smart and live where everything ultimately depends on its existence,” added Williams, who also cited his comments pages of The Daily Telegraph, Friday, September 3, 2010.
“Physical Science by itself will not answer the question why there than gone,” continued Williams. He criticized Hawking’s statement that, “Because there is a law like gravity, the universe can and will create their own.”
Williams also could not figure out with a statement 68-year-old scientist was that “the spontaneous creation is a reason why there than gone, why the universe exists, why we exist.”
Besides Williams, the criticism also came from other religious leaders, like leaders of the Roman Catholic Church in England, Lord Sacks, and Ibrahim Mogra, chairman of the Muslim Council of England. To the Times, Lord Sacks rate that science is an explanation, while religion is concerned the interpretation .
Through her new book will be published Sept. 9, “The Grand Design,” Hawking confront Isaac Newton’s conviction – as well as Hawking’s own view – that the universe including the Earth was formed due to divine intervention.
In summary the book first published the British daily, The Times, Hawking challenged Newton’s theory that the universe is definitely not designed by God for this phenomenon may emerge from chaos. Latest book was written with the American physicist Hawking, Leonard Mlodinow.
Not just this one time override Hawking proposed the concept of God in his theory. In an interview with British television station, Channel 4, June, Hawking admitted to not believe that there is a God is “personal.”
“The question is, if so how the universe began to be chosen by God for reasons we can not understand, or if it is determined by a scientific proposition?I believe the second one, “said Hawking was in the program” Genius of Britain. “
“If you want, you can call the scientific postulates that ‘the Lord.” But not as a personal God who can you go and you ask, “continued Hawking.
