The Origin of the Universe . . .

19 06 2006

In an article Stephen Hawkins recalls a conference he attended in which Pope Jean-Paul II gave a speech.

Hawking quoted the pope as saying, "It's OK to study the universe and where it began. But we should not inquire into the beginning itself because that was the moment of creation and the work of God."

Hmmm . . . I wonder why the pope was really against it.  Either research will discover the divine hand or will destroy most modern religions as we know them . . .
