Stephen Hawking– Right or Wrong? The Current Debate over God and the Origin of the Universe

Wednesday, February 9, 2011 @ 1:00 PM-2:30 PM

Featured Speaker: Michael McClymond, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Department of Theology, Saint Louis University

The Big Bang, says world-renowned physicist, Stephen Hawking, in his new book, The Grand Design (2010), was the result of the laws of physics, and not the work of God. The question, he says, is whether or not the way the universe began was, “chosen by God for reasons we can’t understand, or was it determined by a law of science.” Dr. Hawking believes the second. Is he right? And how does his theory relate to the Big Bang Theory, which affirms t=0, or a first moment in the universe’s history? Saint Louis University professor and scientist-turned-theologian, Dr. Michael McClymond, shares his insights on the historical debates over God as cosmic Creator and the current state of scientific and theological discussion as he covers one of today’s most hotly debated issues in this fascinating look at, “The Current Debate over God and the Origin of the Universe.
