Thanks, But We Already Knew That…

Stephan Hawking spoke at Zellerbach Hall yesterday (original link from Slashdot), and announced his new theory: the universe came from nothing (there is a video—RealPlayer or equivalent needed).

Dr. Hawking, with all due respect, that theory has been around for quite some time now. My biblical calendar is pretty useless, but I think its about 6000 years old.

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
