In Hawking's final book, Brief Answers to Big Questions, published Tuesday, the theoretical physicist and cosmologist, who was smart enough to be played by Eddie Redmayne in the movie of his life, tackled one of life's oldest and most hard questions-Is there a God? Unleash your imagination. Shape the future.' Hawking also encouraged youth to 'wonder about what makes the universe exist.' In an excerpt of his book published in a British paper, Hawking theorised about the potential emergence of a genetically-enhanced elite.
The book, which was completed by his family after his death, presents answers to the questions that Hawking said he received most during his time on Earth.
Among Hawking's other important assertions and findings, sequences concerning extraterrestrial life and artificial intelligence will interest readers. "I think", he says, "that the universe was created spontaneously from scratch, according to the laws of science". "There is no time for a creator to have existed in". Because the universe was once the size of a subatomic particle itself, it's plausible that it behaved similarly during the Big Bang, Hawking wrote.
I have been to the furthest reaches of our galaxy, traveled into a black hole and gone back to the beginning of time. Besides being a significant scientist, Hawking was also an atheist who believed that "there's no God". "If you want, you can say that these laws are God's work, but this is rather a definition of God rather than a proof of its existence", Hawking writes.
"He was regularly asked a set of questions and what we wanted to do with this book is bring together the most definitive and authentic answers he gave", she said. "He would be absolutely delighted. How good is the track record of the human race in using advances in technology for the good of ordinary people?"
