We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

If I were a scientist, I'd stick to the Goldman Sachs principle: bet on both sides.

"Believe in science, believe in God" seems to cover all the possibilities and gives you the best chance for a cheery afterlife.

For a time, it was thought that astrophysicist Stephen Hawking had also left a tiny gap in his credo window for a magical deity. However, he has now come out and declared that there is no God.

He gave an interview to Spain's El Mundo in which he expressed his firm belief that el mundo was the work of scientifically explainable phenomena, not of a supreme being.

Hawking said: "Before we understand science, it is natural to believe that God created the universe. But now science offers a more convincing explanation."

cow tow to religion.

I Don't.

Pluto and Voyager.  What do you know about what's  what's going on there (and the gravity well).?

Stephen Hawking is missing the point. The important question is not "Is there a god (whatever we mean by "god"): The question to ask is "what would it matter if a 'magic genie' were to exist?"

The Biblical 'magic genie' is a self-confessed genocidal, autocratic psychopath, who arrogantly demands our love and devotion, and 'He' threatens to burn us alive should we fail to comply. Suffice it to say, this is a monster that we can all do without.

Fortunately, there is no reason to suppose "God" exists, nor is there a shred of evidence to indicate He exists. Indeed, the source of this superstitious belief—i.e., ancient scrolls written on goats skins in the Bronze Age—have been scientifically proven to be fictional. (See images below). So can we all, please, embrace science and live in the 21st century? —>

The burden of proof DICTATES that all assertions must be supported with evidentiary proof—or they must be dismissed, outright. Therefore, Stephen Hawking's assertion that no god exists is certainly within the parameters of SCIENCE. However, I would caution any atheists to not state—full bore—that "God does NOT exist", since that assertion suffers the burden of proof, for which there is no evidence, since it is impossible (by definition) to prove a metaphysical assertion, since metaphysics is necessarily beyond the realm of the physical world. Therefore, Stephen Hawking's' assertion regarding a supernatural "magic genie" is, technically, dead in the water, PHILOSOPHICALLY.

God came into existence when the first rogue met the first fool!

Hawking was right. we  now live in a rogue and fools paradise

And the rogues are winning. 

We humans have ALWAYS "lived in a fools' paradise".

I wish space-aliens luck, if they search for intelligent life, on planet Earth. —>
