I feel I owe Sean a personal apology now. This is the second time a post I've made in A&A has led to a discussion on Galvasean's looks.

^^^ Or more succinctly:

"Never trust somebody who promises to pay you when you're dead"

You're surprised that a horror writer who was plagued by nightmares and wrote almost exclusively about the vast uncaring terror of the universe and the pathetic insignificance of humanity when compared to the great cosmic unknown wasn't a big fan of Jesus?

Voltaire was mentioned a few posts back: I thought that, on his deathbed, he was exhorted to renounce Satan, and he replied

Quote:
"Now is no time to be making new enemies".
Always liked that one....

No, I'm surprised that a writer who spent much of his writing railing against reason and the quest for knowledge was an atheist.

In A Brief History of Time Hawking writes:
  • One could say: "The boundary condition of the universe is that it has no boundary." The universe would be completely self-contained and not affected by anything outside itself. It would neither be created nor destroyed. It would just BE.
Later he writes:
  • ...This might suggest that the so-called imaginary time is really the real time, and that what we call real time is just a figment of our imaginations. In real time, the universe has a beginning and an end at singularities that form a boundary to space-time and at which the laws of science break down. But in imaginary time, there are no singularities or boundaries. So maybe what we call imaginary time is really more basic, and what we call real is just an idea that we invent to help us describe what we think the universe is like.

SUE: To oversimplify your theories hugely, and I hope you'll forgive me for this, Stephen, you once believed, as I understand it, that there was a point of creation, a big bang, but you no longer believe that to be the case. You believe that there was no beginning and there is no end, that the universe is self-contained. Does that mean that there was no act of creation and therefore that there's no place for God?

STEPHEN: Yes, you have oversimplified. I still believe the universe has a beginning in real time, at the big bang. But there's another kind of time, imaginary time, at right angles to real time, in which the universe has no beginning or end. This would mean that the way the universe began would be determined by the laws of physics. One wouldn't have to say that God chose to set the universe going in some arbitrary way that we couldn't understand. It says nothing about whether or not God exists - just that He isn't arbitrary.
