Stephen Hawking makes it clear: There is no God

The physicist explains that science now offers more convincing explanations for existence. He is therefore an atheist


If I were a scientist, I’d stick to the Goldman Sachs principle: bet on both sides.

“Believe in science, believe in God” seems to cover all the possibilities and gives you the best chance for a cheery afterlife.

For a time, it was thought that astrophysicist Stephen Hawking had also left a tiny gap in his credo window for a magical deity. However, he has now come out and declared that there is no God.

He gave an interview to Spain’s El Mundo in which he expressed his firm belief that el mundo was the work of scientifically explainable phenomena, not of a supreme being.

Hawking said: “Before we understand science, it is natural to believe that God created the universe. But now science offers a more convincing explanation.”

I’m not sure whether there was a specific moment in which science overtook the deistic explanation of existence. However, El Mundo pressed him on the suggestion in “A Brief History of Time” that a unifying theory of science would help mankind “know the mind of God.”

Hawking now explained: “What I meant by ‘we would know the mind of God’ is, we would know everything that God would know, if there were a God. Which there isn’t. I’m an atheist.”

He added: “Religion believes in miracles, but these aren’t compatible with science.”

Perhaps. But some look at, for example, the human eye and wonder how that exciting ball of jelly could have come about scientifically.

Hawking’s been tending toward such an absolute pronouncement for a while. In a speech last year, he offered an explanation of how the world came to being without God. He mused: “What was God doing before the divine creation? Was he preparing hell for people who asked such questions?”

Nabeela’s Murder Confirmed

THATTO, March 21: The body of a Sindhi literary figure, Nabeela Shah (27), was identified by her relatives who visited Edhi centre and a police station here on Saturday. The victim had been missing since May 29, 1996, and her father, Syed Naseer Hussain Shah, at a recent news conference at Hyderabad Press Club, had alleged that Qadir Magsi, chairman of the Sindh Taraqqi Pasand Party, was involved in the affair. He had claimed that she had gone with Dr Magsi when he visited her home in Khairpur on May 28, 1996, and that her whereabouts were not known since then. Dr Magsi and other STPP leaders have rejected the allegation, saying the whole story had been concocted to sabotage the party’s long march, started on Saturday from Sukkur, and to defame the party chairman. On Saturday, Mr Shah and Ms Nabeela’s former husband Mukhtiar Malik, accompanied by some of their relatives, visited Thatto, home town of the STPP chief, after coming to know that the local Edhi centre and police station had been keeping record and belongings of an unidentified woman whose body had been recovered from Kalankot Sim Nali on June 20, 1996. The Edhi centre staff showed them a photograph of the woman’s body, and her relatives identified her as Nabeela Shah. Later, at the police station’s Malkhana, some of her belongings, including clothes and ornaments, were shown to the bereaved who recognized the same. The police and Edhi centre records showed that the woman had been strangulated at least seven days before the recovery of her body from the watercourse. The body remained at the mortuary of the Edhi centre for three days before it was buried as ‘unclaimed’ at the Moach Goth graveyard, on the outskirts of Karachi. Nabeela Shah was mother of two- a son and a daughter- and had obtained divorce from Mukhtiar Malik, a senior producer at the Radio Pakistan, Khairpur. Naseer Hussain Shah had been maintaining that Dr Magsi had exerted pressure on Mr Malik to divorce her after his daughter was ‘brainwashed’. She had become a devoted activist of the STPP and lived with Dr Magsi for long, Mr Shah had claimed. A leader of Sindhi Qaumi Sath, Hafeez Qureshi, and a number of newsmen were accompanying the bereaved during their visit to Thatto. They examined the postmortem report, prepared by Dr Noor Khoja and his staff at the Civil Hospital Maku. A couple of days ago Sindh High Court Chief Justice Wajeehuddin directed the SSPs of Hyderabad and Khairpur to help the woman’s father in lodging of an FIR. The directives were issued on a a petition filed by him with the SHC earlier. However, the bereaved have not yet lodged an FIR for the disappearance or murder of Nabeela Shah.

30 Sep 1988: The Black Night Of Black Friday


Qadir Magsi

September 30, 1988 is the darkest day in the history of Hyderabad.It was the worst massacre in Hyderabad on Mohajirs (urdu speaking people  who migrated from India after partition). Dozens of gunmen armed with Kalashnikov and innovative weapons riding on cars and motorcycles of Hyderabad’s streets, bazaars and neighborhoods indiscriminately opened fire killing & injuring 300 people. The incident occurs on Friday night; that’s why the occurrence is known as Black Friday.

Hyderabad is also well known as the City of Cold Evenings, and evenings in Hyderabad are like a hedge. There is gigantic crowd over the shops of Rabbri which a famous treats of Hyderabad. Gulab Pan House on the advice of Hyderabad is very crowded too; Sarfaraz Charri is cheered with the Chess Players; Phool Gali, Resham Gali and Garri Khatta are also applauded with citizens.

But that evening alleged to be the most hazardous and dreadful evening in the history of Hyderabad. Relevant night around 19:30 hrs dozens of well equipped with arms riding on motorcycles & cars indiscriminately opened fire in all units on the congested areas of Garri Khatta, Heerabad, Tando Wali Muhammad, Surrey Warf, Tilak Chari, Kaali Moari Market, Station road, Khokar Muhalla & Latifabad. Terrorist’s all at once opened hot pillage & murdered at 70 locations of the city at once. They even gunned in the narrow streets & crowded bazaars of Hyderabad all at one time. Attackers were targeting Mohajirs’ population, they assaulted markets and cinema houses and targeted pedestrians.

One of the groups keep were gunning the passengers waiting on the Raliway Platform; Witnesses said that as they stepped down from the cars they cover themselves back to back together & haphazardly kept sacking people in Resham Galli.

According to reports, first Charade Grey colored car suddenly opened fire on people standing on the Lajpat road right after that a White & Orange Cars were seen in various area firing on people.

Within hours entire city scene was changed portraying as a picture of lonely town. Bodies were lying and abrogating over the dead ones. People were moaning and crying as the women & innocent children were massively targeted among the deaths.

According to witnesses, Qadir Magsi and his party men & infamous like Janu Arrayan, Noor Jan Magsi, Hasan Chandio, Laiq Chandio and other villainous outlaw criminals were involved in this massacre. Overnight it was widely spread that Qadir Magsi & infamous mates are involved and as till today they are free & no action has been taken against them.

May 12 tragedy is been on words of every so called political, religious parties and not even the Media cover the carnage of September 30, 1988 was not even condoled by any responsible Political Executives, nobody even dare to take Qadir Magsi name’s to bring him on to justice.

Since my childhood neither I have seen a single religious or political party talking about the episode nor condemning it the incident. Yes but have seen this responsible of oversized catastrophe giving interviews on media as he has been a Public Leader or so.

September 30, 1988 tragedy was to erect clash between the Mohajirs, the permanent residents of Sindh, to built hatred and prejudice between Sindhi and Urdu speaking & creating a wall of a heinous conspiracy that they will be able to wash out the dust and blood of innocent citizens.
