The answer he gives is a resounding "no".<br /> <br /> Far from being a once-in-a-million event that could only be accounted for by extraordinary serendipity or a divine hand, the Big Bang was an inevitable consequence of the laws of physics, Hawking says.<br /> <br /> "Because there is a law such as gravity, the Universe can and will create itself from nothing. Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the Universe exists, why we exist," he writes.<br /> <br /> "It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper and set the Universe going," he finds.
