    I can get into detail when I get home, but Hawkins didn't talk about nothing but rather a different time. Different time than time as we know it.

    These pages can be summed up in The Theory of Everything. Starts today at a theater near you.

    Will the real Stephan Hawking please stand up. Please stand up.

    I'll see your Stephen Hawking and raise you Max Planck.

    "As a man who has devoted his whole life to the most clear headed science, to the study of matter, I can tell you as a result of my research about atoms this much: There is no matter as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent Mind. This Mind is the matrix of all matter."

    — Max Planck, Das Wesen der Materie, 1944

    Funny you should mention him. Planck was the father of quantum physics. And no matter what his religious beliefs may have been, there is no God factor in quantum mechanics.

    There is no god factor in math, astronomy, or biology either. Don't see your point.

    Obviously, Planck was not making a scientific remark because God is not a factor in quantum mechanics. The point is that scientists like Hawking and Planck may have religious beliefs or lack of them but they don't make them a part of their science. What was the point of your post?

    Don't make them a part of their science? Isn't that exactly what Hawking did?

    The point was to show that great scientists can and do believe in God.
