This piece of news is trending right now on Twitter: "Stephen Hawking says universe not created by God."

God did not create the universe, the man who is arguably Britain's most famous living scientist says in a forthcoming book.

In the new work, The Grand Design, Professor Stephen Hawking argues that the Big Bang, rather than occurring following the intervention of a divine being, was inevitable due to the law of gravity.

People really believe an ape made the universe? In our day and age, it's big news for a scientist to say an ape did not make the universe? Even Xenophanes, whose life and world happened over 2000 years ago, would have yawned at the story that's currently all the rage on Twitter. He wrote (and have in mind there were no telescopes, no Standard Model, no nothing in his time):
If oxen and horses and lions had hands and were able to draw with their hands and do the same things as men, horses would draw the shapes of gods to look like horses and oxen to look like oxen, and each would make the gods' bodies have the same shape as they themselves had.
Enough said.
