Stephen Hawking declared that God was not needed for the universe to be created.
Theologian Ravi Zacharias and Dr. John Lennox,( a triple doctorate in science and philosophy from Cambridge university where Hawkings also studied, and has studied and is Professor of Mathematics at Oxford), respond to Hawking’s claim.

Ravi quotes Cambridge Professor John Conwell who states of Hawking’s claim;

“Dare I suggest the oracular Steven Hawking is not in keeping with the philosophers and theologians of our day instead of the other way around ?”
