Stephen Hawking concludes ‘There is no God’ in final book

Hawking's 'There's No God' Remark in Posthumous Book Sends Twitter Into Frenzy

Even after his death, there's still so much we can learn from the brilliant mastermind. Therefore, the theoretical physicist's colleagues and family completed his unfinished book, by drawing materials from his massive personal archive.

Stephen Hawking's posthumous book, "Brief Answers to the Big Questions" has just come out.

"There is no God. No one directs the universe", he wrote, per CNN.

He noted that time travel is possible and that artificial intelligence would likely outsmart humans, another topic which he has previously spoken about. "I prefer to think that everything can be explained another way, by the laws of nature", he adds, moving on to speculate about the possibilities of would-be time travel.

Hawking was known for being a staunch supporter of the Big Bang Theory of creation - the belief that the universe started by exploding out of an entity tinier than an atom. I think that when we die we return to dust. "There is no time for a creator to have existed in". He wrote that if there was God, he had a question for him.

Hawking previously said he did not believe in God and admitted to being an atheist, Time reported, but he also made several other interesting conclusions in his latest book.

"If machines produce everything we need, the outcome will depend on how things are distributed", Hawking wrote on Reddit. He also predicts that "within the next hundred years we will be able to travel to anywhere in the Solar System".

From his desk at Cambridge University and beyond, Stephen Hawking sent his mind spiraling into the deepest depths of black holes, radiating across the endless cosmos and swirling back billions of years to witness time's first breath.




The book was meant to collect Hawking's answers to the questions he received most frequently from answer seekers. "How good is the track record of the human race in using advances in technology for the good of ordinary people?"

Hawking was concerned about how "divided" humans have become.

According to his daughter, Hawking believed that "We seem to have lost the ability to look outward, and we are increasingly looking inward to ourselves", a harsh indictment from a man who spent decades in a wheelchair unable to speak, and a warning worth heeding.

Prior to his death, the scientist also made a prediction about doomsday, according to Geekwire.

As for the future, he advises his young readers in the last Chapter of book: "don't forget to look at the stars and not on your feet".

"I want to share my excitement about these big questions and my enthusiasm about this quest", says Hawking in an excerpt of his final book.

Stephen Hawking spoke from beyond the grave on Tuesday to warn the world that science and education are under threat around the world.
