Hawking is having problems with his religious ideology. He has been perpetually chasing his tail around in circles.....from THEIST ---> AGNOSTIC ---> ATHEIST ---> and back again!
So why would anyone take seriously someone who obviously belongs in an insane asylum, is beyond me.
CREATION, in any form, whether under the guise of God, a singularity, or from nothing, is easily shown by a Kindergarten child to be completely IMPOSSIBLE because it is an ontological contradiction. It is a square circle.
If you disagree, or can explain why “creation” is indeed an ontological possibility, you are welcome to post your explanation is my cosmological argument hub.
Next time....try telling a Kindergartener that the basketball on his driveway will be moved by ‘a’ cause in motion. Then you’ll see where he tells you to go.....
