Stephen Hawking's new book critiqued by Alister McGrath
Stephen Hawking, the internationally respected scientist, has published a new book, The Grand Design, which famously (already!) declares, "Because there is a law such as gravity, the Universe can and will create itself from nothing. Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the Universe exists, why we exist."
There is a substantial review and critique by English theologian Alister McGrath (whose first doctorate was in Molecular Biology). I have published some of this review at the GodTalkatUWS blog.
