Why does the universe exist? Where does that leave us?
We live in a world today where technology is developing at rapid speeds, yet we still have many unanswered questions. Who created the Universe? No one has an answer to that question yet, but Stephen Hawking has an interesting take on it.
The universe can and will create itself from nothing
As you may know, Stephen Hawking often compared to Albert Einstein is well known as one of the brightest men on Earth. At age 21, Hawking was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease.
Stephen has not only overcome and beat some of the hardest odds, living 53 years longer than doctors expected. He’s never been one to let negativity in life get him down. Stephen is very knowledgeable and has spent years researching the universe’s origin.
Hawking feels that we didn’t have a “God” or a “divine creator”. He looks at the hard evidence of science and believes that it was an inevitable collision of physics and the right moment. Think back to the last science class you have ever taken, we all learned how gravity works, rights?
The law of gravity shows exactly how the universe can and will create itself from nothing. We exist because the universe exists, we have the Universe’s spontaneous creation to thank for that. Stephen Hawking says.
“If we do discover a complete theory, it should in time be understandable in broad principle by everyone, not just a few scientists. Then we shall all, philosophers, scientists, and just ordinary people be able to take part in the discussion of the question of why it is that we and the universe exist. If we find the answer to that, it would be the ultimate triumph of human reason – for then we would know the mind of God.”
Hawking goes on to say new theories will continue to rise every day when it comes to astrophysicists, and our minds should be open to the possibilities how and why our universe arose. Furthermore, where does that leave us? You tell me.
