The grand design book cover. One can’t the grand design pdf free download that God doesn’t exist, but science makes God unnecessary.
The book examines the history of scientific knowledge about the universe. Earth is not located in the center of the universe. The presentation has been described as easy to understand by some reviewers, but also as sometimes “impenetrable,” by others. Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing.
Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the universe exists, why we exist. It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper and set the universe going. God out of biology but physics remained more uncertain. If our universe arose spontaneously from nothing at all, one might predict that its total energy should be zero.
And when we measure the total energy of the universe, which could have been anything, the answer turns out to be the only one consistent with this possibility. Whether God survives is anyone’s guess. I’ve waited a long time for this book. The reader will be able to get through it without bogging down in a lot of technical detail and will, I hope, have his or her appetite whetted for books with a deeper technical content. Canada Press journalist Carl Hartman said: “Cosmologists, the people who study the entire cosmos, will want to read British physicist and mathematician Stephen Hawking’s new book. Why is there something rather than nothing? This succinct, easily digested book could perhaps do with fewer dry, academic groaners, but Hawking and Mlodinow pack in a wealth of ideas and leave us with a clearer understanding of modern physics in all its invigorating complexity.
Hawking’s conclusion on God’s existence as a very good joke which he obviously welcomes very much. We have to congratulate Leonard and Stephen for finally, finally contributing to the climatic overthrow of the superstition of materialism. Because everything that we call matter comes from this domain which is invisible, which is beyond space and time. All that is needed are the laws of nature. God, provided the laws of nature pre-date the universe. Our concept of time begins with the creation of the universe. What we have then is totally non-physical laws, outside of time, creating a universe.
Now that description might sound somewhat familiar. Very much like the biblical concept of God: not physical, outside of time, able to create a universe. The spare and earnest voice that Mr. M-theory is far from complete. The multiverse comes with a lot of baggage, such as an overarching space and time to host all those bangs, a universe-generating mechanism to trigger them, physical fields to populate the universes with material stuff, and a selection of forces to make things happen. Cosmologists embrace these features by envisaging sweeping “meta-laws” that pervade the multiverse and spawn specific bylaws on a universe-by-universe basis. In that respect the meta-laws have a similar status to an unexplained transcendent god.
Davies concludes “there is no compelling need for a supernatural being or prime mover to start the universe off. But when it comes to the laws that explain the big bang, we are in murkier waters. Hawking And God: An Intimate Relationship”, stated that “contemplating a final theory is inconsistent with the very essence of physics, an empirical science based on the gradual collection of data. Because we don’t have instruments capable of measuring all of Nature, we cannot ever be certain that we have a final theory. There’ll always be room for surprises, as the history of physics has shown again and again. In fact, I find it quite pretentious to imagine that we humans can achieve such a thing. Maybe Hawking should leave God alone.
