Rael in support of Hawking. "There is no need of a god to explain the universe"

Raelians worldwide are following with interest the heated debate sparked by British physicist Stephen Hawking’s latest book, “The Grand Design.”

In the book, Hawking says God had no role in the creation of the universe and evokes spontaneous creation to explain the existence of something out of nothing. Britain’s religious leaders have reacted to these pronouncements in much the same way, defending an almighty god “upon whose activity everything ultimately depends for existence.”

“This is a lot of blah-blah-blah for nothing, since there is no God,” said Rael, founder and leader of the International Raelian Movement. Rael has previously said he disagrees with Hawking’s vision of Earth humans “colonizing” the cosmos, but he said today that he agrees with the scientist’s view that “there is no need for a god to explain the existence of the universe.”

Writing in The Times of London, Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks said, “The Bible simply isn’t interested in how the universe came into being.”

“This is a really funny comment, since the scriptures still teach that God created the universe,” Rael said. “If Rabbi Sacks wants to be consistent in what he says, creation of the universe by God should be removed from all the religious books.”
