The universe didn’t need any divine intervention or help to burst into being, famed cosmologist Stephen Hawking told a crowd at the California Institute of Technology on Tuesday.
Hawking was there to give a lecture titled “The Origin of the Universe” to the academe and the scientific community.
The famed professor, author, and theoretical physicist began his talk by reciting an African creation myth, and then moving on to big questions such as, why are we here?
He observed that many people are still seeking a divine answer that counters the theories of curious physicists. At one point, he even quipped, “What was God doing before the divine creation? Was he preparing hell for people who asked such questions?”
