In his book "The Grand Design", Hawking makes an essential point:
"In the history of science we have discovered a sequence of better and better theories and models" working toward an explanation of the universe that is not only increasingly inclusive of the many "forces" of the universe, but increasingly predictive and inclusive.
How can this elegant sense of the history and purpose of science be used to counter the increasingly popular anti-science mentality so prevalent in the United States?
Unfortunately, it can't. People don't really care about science for the most part. The only thing we have going for science is the fact that it creates technology,and people aren't going to knock that. Thus, they will tolerate science as long as it brings them goodies.
Science is everything.
If we care about God, we care about science.
If we care about science, we care about God.
If we care about survival, we care about God and science.

"The Big Bang was the result of the inevitable laws of physics and did not need God to spark the creation of the Universe."What say you?

God didn't create the universe -- it was actually a result of the inevitable laws of physics, British physicist Prof Stephen Hawking has concluded.In his latest book, The Grand Design, Hawking said: "Because there is a law such as gravity, the Universe can and will create itself from nothing....
