Professor Stephen Hawking’s final work reveals: There is no God, the afterlife doesn’t exist, and there are forms of intelligent life out there.

Stephen Hawking’s final book has revealed his answers to 10 ‘fundamental questions’ he was constantly being asked.

Ranging from questions about God’s existence to whether aliens are real and if Time travel was possible, Stephen Hawking provides his honest answers in the recently published work.

According to The Telegraph, Hawking said: “We are each free to believe what we want, and it’s my view that the simplest explanation is that there is no God…”

Furthermore, the British scientist is quoted as saying:

“No one created the universe, and no one directors out of fate. This leads me to a profound realization: there is probably no heaven and afterlife either. I think belief in the afterlife is just wishful thinking.”

The world-renowned scientists explained, “There is no reliable evidence for it, and it flies in the face of everything we know in science. I think that when we die, we return

The collection of articles and essays will be published in Brief Answers to the Big Questions.

Brief Answers to Big Questions:

Hawking’s ten big questions

Is there a God?

There is no God. No one directs the universe.

How did it all begin?

In a hot Big Bang.

What is inside a black hole?

Falling into a black hole is definitely bad news. If it were a stellar mass black hole you would be made into spaghetti before reaching the horizon.

Can we predict the future?

No and yes. In principal the laws allow us to predict the future but in practice it is too difficult.

Is time travel possible?

Travel back in time can’t be ruled out according to our present understanding.

Will we survive on Earth?

The present world order has a future but it will be a very different one.

Is there other intelligent life in the universe?

There are forms of intelligent life out there. We need to be wary of answering back until we have developed a bit further.

Should we colonize space?

I expect within the next hundred years we will be able to travel to anywhere in the Solar System.

Will artificial intelligence outsmart us?

A super-intelligent AI will be extremely good at accomplishing goals and if those goals aren’t aligned with ours we’re in trouble.

How do we shape the future?

Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet.

P.S. I loved the Book.
