Stephen Hawking concludes ‘There is no God’ in final book

Revealing some of his reasons for his claim, Hawking said he believes everything could be explained another way, by nature of laws, instead of blaming God for things like certain diseases which many people have believed is a curse from God.

Hawking died in March at age 76 before the book could be completed - but colleagues and family, including his daughter Lucy, stepped in to finish it.

Scientist Stephen Hawking of "Into The Universe With Stephen Hawking" speaks via satellite during the Science Channel portion of the 2010 Television Critics Association Press Tour at the Langham Hotel on January 14, 2010 in Pasadena, California.

Brief Answers to the Big Questions hit the shelves this week, and in it, Hawking provided answers to the questions he was most often asked.

Hawking suffered from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a neurodegenerative disorder also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, for most of his adult life.

VAR proved their undoing again, ruling Marco Asensio's follow-up offside after Casemiro had headed against the crossbar. After the restart, the home fans sang "echale huevos", meaning, "play with some balls".

Despite ruling out the presence of God as such, he surprisingly asserts that there are "forms of intelligent life out there", saying there is definitely a need for being "wary of answering back until we have developed a bit further".

In his book "Brief Answers To The Big Questions", Hawking wrote that it was "almost inevitable that either a nuclear confrontation or environmental catastrophe will cripple the Earth at some point in the next 1,000 years".

And he leaves open the possibility of other phenomena.

From his desk at Cambridge University and beyond, Stephen Hawking sent his mind spiraling into the deepest depths of black holes, radiating across the endless cosmos and swirling back billions of years to witness time's first breath. He also enthusiastically assumes that "within the next hundred years we will be able to travel to anywhere in the Solar System".

Hawking was regularly asked a particular set of questions and this book is an attempt to compile the most authentic, clearest, and definitive answers that he ever gave.

Hawking saw the world on the brink of a "vast transformative change" when he died, she noted, adding: "He's asking us not to go into the future blindly".

And he raised a very good question: "How good is the track record of the human race in using advances in technology for the good of ordinary people?"

Hawking had also prepared remarks prior to his death, which were played at the launch of his book on Monday in London, and he expressed concerns for the future, CNN noted. "It sometimes feels like he's still here because we talk about him and hear his voice - and then we have the reminder that he's left us", Lucy Hawking said for AFP. He cited President Trump's election and Britain's 2016 vote to leave the European Union as part of "a global revolt against experts and that includes scientists". After Hawking's death, his Estate made a decision to go forward with the project of publishing the book.

Acknowledging that science had yet to overcome major challenges for the world - including climate change, overpopulation, species extinction, deforestation and the degradation of the oceans - the physicist still urged young people "to look up at the stars and not down at your feet".
