God, Time and Hawking

From his book, "The Grand Design", Stephen Hawking says the following: 1. "No matter how thorough our observation of the present, the (unobserved) past, like the future, is indefinite and exists only as a spectrum of possibilities." I would take this to mean, that until an event is observed directly in some matter how obvious the event may seem due to the results that came after....all possibilities of that event must be taken into consideration. 2. "It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper and set the universe going" It may not be necessary, but if one accpets the first quote....a scientific mind cannot dismiss the possibility of God or a creator until the event of creation can be observed. Bascially put, the Big Bang and the Creation story are on equal scientific footing no matter what the observable present seems to be.

Science is all about questioning. Nothing is ever proven beyond a shred of doubt. Too many people choose to view science as absolute, as a faith/religion itself. Ironic how those who choose to espouse the superiority of science over religion understand so little of either. I understand Dr. Hawking to be confirming your conclusion.
