Hawking Believes in a Spontaneous Universe

    I recently finished Stephen Hawking's book 'The Grand Design' in which he claims that the universe was created spontaneously through quantum fluctuations. What he leaves out, probably intentionally, is how these quantum fluctuations came to exist in the first place. After all, isn't that really the important question?

    If someone has read the book, I'd love to hear your thoughts!

      Sorry, we all read a different Book...  It says that the Big Bang was what happened when the first word in all eternity was spoken. Everything else is just another version of the same event.
