Stephen Hawking concludes ‘There is no God’ in final book

"No one created the universe and no one directs our fate", Professor Hawking revealed.

Among Hawking's other important assertions and findings, sequences concerning extraterrestrial life and artificial intelligence will interest readers. "I prefer to think that everything can be explained another way, by the laws of nature".

"I am convinced that within this century, people will learn how to modify the intelligence and instincts such as aggression", wrote Hawking. For most of his adult life, he suffered from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a neurodegenerative disorder also commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease.

The scientist died while still working on the book, which his family and colleagues finished with the help of his vast personal archives. Besides being a significant scientist, Hawking was also an atheist who believed that "there's no God". "I believe the second", wrote Hawking.

And he leaves open the possibility of other phenomena.

"Reverse the flow of time can not be ruled out, according to our modern understanding, he says, and adds: - In the next hundred years people will be able to travel anywhere in the Solar system".

"There is no God", wrote Hawking, as reported by CNN.

Her brother, Timothy, told how he could hear his father's voice "leaping off the page" when he read the new book.

His daughter Lucy says communication was so important to Hawking in his lifetime and we see this book as part of his legacy, bringing together his thoughts, humour, theories and writing into one lovely edition.

"We are free to believe what we want, and it's my view that the simplest explanation is that there is no God", he said according to the Telegraph.

And he raised a very good question: "How good is the track record of the human race in using advances in technology for the good of ordinary people?" He cited President Trump's election and Britain's 2016 vote to leave the European Union as part of "a global revolt against experts and that includes scientists".

"He makes this comment about how we seem to have lost the ability to look outward, and we are increasingly looking inward to ourselves", she added.

"We have this one life to appreciate the grand design of the universe", Hawking concludes the first chapter of his final book, "and for that I am extremely grateful".

Stephen Hawking, the eminent theoretical physicist, died earlier this year on Einstein's birthday (March 14) at 76, not without leaving a farewell message to humanity.
