  • Stephen Hawking Posthumously Asserts 'There Is No God' in New Book

When you see people spending time and energy debating whether or not a bagel emoji should have cream cheese on it, you realize how easily distracted we are.

According to his daughter, who helped complete the book, Hawking saw humanity approaching "vast transformative change" spurred by high-tech advances.

Acknowledging that science had yet to overcome major challenges for the world - including climate change, overpopulation, species extinction, deforestation and the degradation of the oceans - the physicist still urged young people "to look up at the stars and not down at your feet".

A percentage of the royalties of the new book will go to the Motor Neuron Disease Association and the Stephen Hawking Foundation.

Published by John Murray (a Hachette company), Brief Answers to the Big Questions is a selection of the late cosmologist's most profound, accessible, and timely reflections from his personal archive. The book was meant to collect Hawking's answers to the questions he received most frequently from answer seekers.

- How did it all begin?

Is prediction of future possible?

- Will we survive on Earth?

In his book "Brief Answers To The Big Questions", Hawking wrote that it was "almost inevitable that either a nuclear confrontation or environmental catastrophe will cripple the Earth at some point in the next 1,000 years".

- Will artificial intelligence outsmart us? "Unleash your imagination. Shape the future".

"God does not exist, aliens do exist and can travel through time", says Stephen Hawking in a book that he wrote before his death. The panel included Hawking's children, his academic colleagues, and others who knew him.

British theoretical physicist professor Stephen Hawking gives a lecture during the Starmus Festival on the Spanish Canary Island of Tenerife on September 23, 2014.

"When Brakcet and trump now have a new influence in connection with immigration and the development of education, we are witnessing a global revolt against the experts, and that includes scientists", he says.

In his last Reddit post before his death, which took place as a Q&A on the forum, Hawking said he feared Earth would have a "catastrophic ending" in the near future and that it he thought it could be due to smart robots that might take over the planet.

"He was deeply anxious that at a time when the challenges are global, we were becoming increasingly local in our thinking".

Do you agree with Hawking's theories?
