This is a small snapshot of the first episode of Curiosity, which sees Stephen Hawking ask, and try to answer, the question, “Did God create the universe?”
I consider myself generally to be science-minded and I don’t subscribe to any organized religion. But I don’t think anything should be dismissed as bunkum by Hawking and his fellow scientists and/or atheists.
The ultimate point is that no one knows whether a force outside of our understanding or even outside of our universe exists. Whether you’re one who would call it God or not, it’s impossible to prove or disprove this.
As for Curiosity, the explanation of how all of us and everything we see around can have come from nothingness is beyond my understanding. Still, it’s intriguing to watch this theory being explained.
