Stephen Hawking on God

The God Stephen Hawking rejects is the God of what is called “intelligent design.” In discussing his argument from his book, The Grand Design, he says he rejects “belief in an omniscient Creator whose hands guide the working of the cosmos.” I reject that theological view as well. It’s a finite theology of an infinite God.

The idea of God Hawking reject is sometimes called “the God of the gaps.” In this perspective, the idea of God ‘fills in the gaps’ in scientific knowledge. As scientific knowledge advances, this God retreats, getting smaller and smaller. <more>
