Stephen Hawking’s final book, Brief Answers to Big Questions, was published earlier this week, seven months after his passing. In it, Hawking, a brilliant physicist, cosmologist and mathematician explains that “the universe was spontaneously created out of nothing, according to the laws of science.” In this nothingness – there was no time, there was no space. As a result, Hawking wrote: “We have finally found something that doesn’t have a cause, because there was no time for a cause to exist in…For me this means that there is no possibility of a creator, because there is no time for a creator to have existed in.” And so, Hawking, concludes that “there is no God. No one directs the universe.”
There is no question, Hawking was a genius. But, when it comes to God, I can say without hesitation that he got it wrong. Fortunately, I have another genius on my side, Albert Einstein. And I have Kabbalah, Jewish mysticism, which allows us to discover God not only in the mysteries of the universe, but in the nothingness that Hawking refers to.
