Grateful for the Grand Design

Stephen Hawking (1942-2018)

A great mind, a great man of Science, is gone.

Gone where?

The magnificent cosmos was all the heaven he saw and studied.

“One can’t prove that God doesn’t exist. But science makes God unnecessary. … The laws of physics can explain the universe without the need for a creator.”

. . .  He also explained throughout his life his thoughts on a possible afterlife, saying, “I believe the simplest explanation is, there is no God. No one created the universe and no one directs our fate. This leads me to a profound realization that there probably is no heaven and no afterlife either. We have this one life to appreciate the grand design of the universe and for that, I am extremely grateful.”
