In their new book, Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow present the most recent scientific thinking about the mysteries of the universe, in nontechnical language marked by both brilliance and simplicity. In The Grand Design they explain that according to quantum theory, the cosmos does not have just a single existence or history, but rather that every possible history of the universe exists simultaneously.

When applied to the universe as a whole, this idea calls into question the very notion of cause and effect. A succinct, startling, and lavishly illustrated guide to discoveries that are altering our understanding and threatening some of our most cherished belief systems, The Grand Design is a book that will inform—and provoke—like no other.

Hawking and Mlodinow take the reader through a whirlwind tour of fundamental physics and cosmology. Making science like this interesting is not all that hard; making it accessible is the real trick.

Evolutionary biologist and advocate for atheism Richard Dawkins welcomed Hawking's position and said that " Darwinism kicked God out of biology but physics remained more uncertain.


Hawking is now administering the coup de grace. Theoretical physicist Sean M. Carroll , writing in The Wall Street Journal , described the book as speculative but ambitious: Cosmologist Lawrence Krauss , in his article "Our Spontaneous Universe", wrote that "there are remarkable, testable arguments that provide firmer empirical evidence of the possibility that our universe arose from nothing.

If our universe arose spontaneously from nothing at all, one might predict that its total energy should be zero. And when we measure the total energy of the universe, which could have been anything, the answer turns out to be the only one consistent with this possibility.

But data like this coming in from our revolutionary new tools promise to turn much of what is now metaphysics into physics.

The Grand Design

Whether God survives is anyone's guess. It gets into the deepest questions of modern cosmology without a single equation. The reader will be able to get through it without bogging down in a lot of technical detail and will, I hope, have his or her appetite whetted for books with a deeper technical content.

And who knows? Maybe in the end the whole multiverse idea will actually turn out to be right! The Grand Design may sharpen appetites for answers to questions like 'Why is there something rather than nothing? This succinct, easily digested book could perhaps do with fewer dry, academic groaners, but Hawking and Mlodinow pack in a wealth of ideas and leave us with a clearer understanding of modern physics in all its invigorating complexity.

Because everything that we call matter comes from this domain which is invisible, which is beyond space and time. All religious experience is based on just three basic fundamental ideas And nothing in the book invalidates any of these three ideas".

Roger Penrose in the FT doubts that adequate understandings can come from this approach, and points out that "unlike quantum mechanics, M-theory enjoys no observational support whatsoever". A century or two hence God or the Laws of Nature" explains that "The Grand Design breaks the news, bitter to some, that … to create a universe from absolute nothing God is not necessary.

All that is needed are the laws of nature. Our concept of time begins with the creation of the universe. Therefore if the laws of nature created the universe, these laws must have existed prior to time; that is the laws of nature would be outside of time. What we have then is totally non-physical laws, outside of time, creating a universe. Now that description might sound somewhat familiar.

Very much like the biblical concept of God: The spare and earnest voice that Mr. Hawking employed with such appeal in A Brief History of Time has been replaced here by one that is alternately condescending, as if he were Mr. Rogers explaining rain clouds to toddlers, and impenetrable. Craig Callender , in the New Scientist , was not convinced by the theory promoted in the book: But that doesn't stop the authors from asserting that it explains the mysteries of existence In the absence of theory, though, this is nothing more than a hunch doomed — until we start watching universes come into being — to remain untested.

The lesson isn't that we face a dilemma between God and the multiverse , but that we shouldn't go off the rails at the first sign of coincidences.

Paul Davies in The Guardian wrote: Cosmologists embrace these features by envisaging sweeping "meta-laws" that pervade the multiverse and spawn specific bylaws on a universe-by-universe basis.

The meta-laws themselves remain unexplained — eternal, immutable transcendent entities that just happen to exist and must simply be accepted as given. In that respect the meta-laws have a similar status to an unexplained transcendent god. But when it comes to the laws that explain the big bang, we are in murkier waters. Marcelo Gleiser , in his article "Hawking And God: An Intimate Relationship", stated that "contemplating a final theory is inconsistent with the very essence of physics, an empirical science based on the gradual collection of data.

In fact, I find it quite pretentious to imagine that we humans can achieve such a thing. Maybe Hawking should leave God alone. Physicist Peter Woit , of Columbia University , has criticized the book: The book's rather conventional claim that "God is unnecessary" for explaining physics and early universe cosmology has provided a lot of publicity for the book.

In Scientific American , John Horgan is not sympathetic to the book: Critics call this the " Alice's Restaurant problem," a reference to the refrain of the old Arlo Guthrie folk song: The anthropic principle has always struck me as so dumb that I can't understand why anyone takes it seriously.

It's cosmology's version of creationism. The physicist Tony Rothman , with whom I worked at Scientific American in the s, liked to say that the anthropic principle in any form is completely ridiculous and hence should be called CRAP.

Hawking is telling us that unconfirmable M-theory plus the anthropic tautology represents the end of that quest. The Economist is also critical of the book: Hawking and Mlodinow " It is the bare bones of quantum mechanics that have proved to be consistent with what is presently known of the subatomic world.

The authors' interpretations and extrapolations of it have not been subjected to any decisive tests, and it is not clear that they ever could be. Once upon a time it was the province of philosophy to propose ambitious and outlandish theories in advance of any concrete evidence for them. Perhaps science, as Professor Hawking and Mr Mlodinow practice it in their airier moments, has indeed changed places with philosophy, though probably not quite in the way that they think. The Bishop of Swindon , Dr.

Lee Rayfield , said, "Science can never prove the non-existence of God, just as it can never prove the existence of God. Fraser N.
