Hawking Challenges Newton

Sir Isaac Newton believed that the universe could not have come out of chaos; it had to be designed by God. In his new book, The Grand Design, physicist Stephen Hawking says, “The Universe can and will create itself from nothing.”

The book, which doesn’t release until next week, is already being blasted by religious leaders after the Times of London wrote about it (the paper will publish an excerpt on Sunday).
