  • About this eBook:
    • Told in language we all can understand, A Brief History of Time plunges into the exotic realms of black holes and quarks, of antimatter and "arrows of time," of the big bang and a bigger God—where the possibilities are wondrous and unexpected. With exciting images and profound imagination, Stephen Hawking brings us closer to the ultimate secrets at the very heart of creation.

If humankind did discover a unified theory of the universe, "we would know the mind of God."
Good read, even for 1988.

He was an atheist. Ironically, Hawking is buried in a church and not a zoo with the rest of his ape ancestors.

Be sure to watch "The Theory of Everything" to understand somewhat the early life of Stephen Hawking.

I really enjoyed this book. Some of it was a stretch for me to understand but still enjoyable.

If, like me, you love learning about physics but don't enjoy the math, I also recommend two books by this author [wikipedia.org].
1. Fear of Physics - a bit old but the laws of physics haven't change much since then
2. The Physics of Star Trek - Great stuff on how, Eisenberg aside, would a transporter work. How would a Warp drive work?

Smart people believe in science and facts. Makes sense to me he was an atheist.

There's no reason in science so I find the opposite. Dumb people "believe" in science because there's nothing to believe. Science is all about observations, not beliefs.

You see a giant black hole exploding through a giant telescope-- If you see it, then I see it too. What do you "believe" about it? Nothing because there's nothing to believe. It's the fantasy that you create around that observation that makes you "believe" -- e.g. a parallel universe. There's no science behind that, only fairy tales.
