Stephen Hawking, the quondam Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge, has stated in his latest book, 'The Grand Design', that no divine force was needed to explain why the Universe was created. Though I have not yet had an opportunity to read the book, I have no doubt that Hawking goes to considerable lengths to substantiate what he says with his usual impeccable logic and scientific evidence, nevertheless, his comments were immediately attacked by powerful apologists for religion who offered absolutely no scientific evidence or logical reasoning whatsoever to back their self-styled rebuttals of Hawking's claims.
Amongst those who attacked Hawking was that well-known delusional psychotic, Dr Rowan Williams, the Arch-buffoon of Durovernum, AKA the Archbishop of Canterbury (pictured), who stated today in ‘The Times’:
“Belief in God is not about plugging a gap in explaining how one thing relates to another within the Universe.
It is the belief that there is an intelligent, living agent on whose activity everything ultimately depends for its existence.”
Unsurprisingly, Williams was (and is) completely unable to provide a single scintilla of credible empiric evidence to support his assertion that there is ‘ANY intelligent, living agent on whose activity everything ultimately depends for its existence’, consequently his claims remain nothing other than the completely unfounded and totally dysfunctional ravings of a delusional psychotic who obdurately refuses to accept objective reality.
The self-styled 'rebuttals' by Williams' co-conspirators in the 'god exists' lie were equally spurious, but then what can one expect from men who make a good living by exploiting the gullible, the needy and the psychologically dysfunctional amongst us?
