Stephen Hawking’s final book got published on 16th October this year and it reiterated Hawking’s beliefs regarding the existence of a higher power watching over us.

Hawking’s book titled Brief Answers to The Big Questions was completed by Hawking’s family after his death this year and ponders over a number of thought-provoking topics like “how did it all begin?”

Brief answers to Big questions is a compilation of Hawking’s notes, speeches and answers

Most notably, the book begins with the question “Is there a God?” The late physicist was one of the most renowned atheists and his answer to this question clearly reflects this. He categorically states that a God does not exist while also qualifying it with these words:

“I do not want to give the impression that my work is about proving or disproving the existence of God.”

He does talk about intelligent life-forms though

“There are forms of intelligent life out there. We need to be wary of answering back until we have developed a bit further.”
Hawking was a famous Athiest while he was alive

The book does not come off as a surprise as Hawking had been very vocal about his views regarding God’s existence even while he was alive. The book is simply a collection of his notes, speeches, essays and responses pieced together by collaboration with his colleagues and family – so it naturally reflects his views.
