Stephen Hawking’s new book The Grand Design is creating a stir. The search for the Holy Grail is over, God did not create the universe. The universe created itself. The theoretical physicist claims God had no role in the universe and our lonely planet came by chance under the greatest lucky circumstances. The Grand Design will cause controversy among religious followers.
“In The Grand Design we explain why, according to quantum theory, the cosmos does not have just a single existence, or history, but rather that every possible history of the universe exists simultaneously.”
“We question the conventional concept of reality, posing instead a “model-dependent” theory of reality. We discuss how the laws of our particular universe are extraordinarily finely tuned so as to allow for our existence, and show why quantum theory predicts the multiverse–the idea that ours is just one of many universes that appeared spontaneously out of nothing, each with different laws of nature.”
