"Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the universe exists, why we exist,". This was part of the quote that Stephen Hawking wrote in his new book "The Grand Design" about the non-existence of a creator (or god).
I know this is primarily a Party Blog, but when read this I had to comment on it. A lot of Catholics around the world were obviously upset about this statement, and rightly so. But I chose to use his THEORY (remember, none of the writings of a theoretical physicist are fact) as a springboard to support a crucial part of the story of Christ.
The Bible states that Mary gave birth to Jesus through "immaculate conception". No male was needed to begin the "Spontaneous creation" of the birth of Jesus. This is very compelling to me.
It is almost a contradiction then to disbelieve that Christ could not have been created through this manner and adopt the theory that God had nothing to do with the creation of the Universe.
Nature mimics Itself throughout the universe. Scientists have compared Comets and Meteorites
to Pollen from a flower. Carrying there elemental cargo throughout the Cosmos spreading life . Prof. Hawking blames Gravity as the rouge force that started it all, but I pose this question then, who created Gravity. For every action there is a reaction and that is a fact. Without gravity maybe the Universe would not exist. But as Gravity is a force; a great push. Then who created the push that started it all.
I believe in God, not because of a fear of the unknown, or because I need an answer to my existence, but because there has never been a reason presented to me or otherwise not to.
