In A Brief History Of Time I used the word "God" like Einstein did as a shorthand for the laws of physics. However, this is not what most people mean by God, so I have decided not to use the term. The laws of physics can explain the universe without the need for a God. Stephen Hawking

So Einstein was wrong when he said, "God does not play dice." Consideration of black holes suggests, not only that God does play dice, but that he sometimes confuses us by throwing them where they can't be seen. Stephen Hawking
Download Wallpaper:

If the total energy of the universe must always remain zero, and it costs energy to create a body, how can a whole universe be created from nothing? Stephen Hawking
Download Wallpaper:

We are entering an increasingly dangerous period of our history. But I'm an optimist. Stephen Hawking
Download Wallpaper:

We shouldn't be surprised that conditions in the universe are suitable for life, but this is not evidence that the universe was designed to allow for life. We could call order by the name of God, but it would be an impersonal God. There's not much personal about the laws of physics. Stephen Hawking

The world has changed far more in the past 100 years than in any other century in history.

Clearly, no scientist better represents those advances than Albert Einstein: TIME's Person of the Century. Stephen Hawking

I think the next [21st] century will be the century of complexity. We have already discovered the basic laws that govern matter and understand all the normal situations. We don't know how the laws fit together, and what happens under extreme conditions. But I expect we will find a complete unified theory sometime this century. The is no limit to the complexity that we can build using those basic laws. Stephen Hawking

If there really is a complete unified theory that governs everything, it presumably also determines your actions. But it does so in a way that is impossible to calculate for an organism that is as complicated as a human being. The reason we say that humans have free will is because we can't predict what they will do. Stephen Hawking

We are all now connected by the Internet, like neurons in a giant brain. Stephen Hawking
Download Wallpaper:

Only a very few would allow creatures like us to exist. Thus our presence selects out from this vast array only these universes that are compatible without existence. Although we are puny and insignificant on the scale of the cosmos, this makes us in a sense, the lords of creation. Stephen Hawking
