  • Your future depends on science, Stephen Hawking warns from beyond the grave

In a video broadcast at the Science Museum in London for the launch of a book, Brief Answers To The Big Questions, that he began before his death, the cosmologist said: "What lies ahead for those who are young now?"

Stephen Hawking concluded that everyone should "try to make sense of what you see, and wonder about what makes the universe exist".

And in his opinion, there's no such thing as the supreme being.

'We are each free to believe what we want, and it's my view that the simplest explanation is that there is no God, ' he writes, according to The Telegraph.

Hawking believed that nobody created this universe and no one controls our fate, and with regard to the belief in an afterlife, it's a dream, because there is no reliable evidence it has no.

'This leads me to a profound realisation: there is probably no heaven and afterlife either. FaithThe late professor was an esteemed scholar, and so spent much of his time thinking about the world's biggest problems.And when it comes to religion, it's no surprise that Professor Hawking had plenty of opinions."Do I have faith?".

Hawking has always been optimistic about the prospect of finding alien life, but concerned about the dangers that an encounter with a more advanced alien civilization might bring. I think that when we die we return to dust, ' he explained.

'There is no God.

"We have this one life to appreciate the grand design of the universe, and for that I am extremely grateful".

'In a hot Big Bang'.

"We need to employ effective management in all areas of its development", he said.

- Can we predict the future? For example, take his gambles that black holes destroy information, thus seemingly violating the current understanding of quantum mechanics, or that the Higgs boson could never be found. - World order is the future. "There is no time to wait for Darwinian evolution to make us more intelligent and better natured".

He also urged young people "to look up at the stars and not down at your feet".

Just days after Hawking's final academic paper was published online, the world-famous physicist is back in the spotlight for a different reason: a stark, controversial prediction of a future that threatens the end of the human race as we know it.

Stephen Hawking on October 10, 1979 in Princeton, New Jersey.

'Presumably, they will die out, or become unimportant. "Instead, we get a race of people, who themselves are designing more and more improved", - said Hawking.

Of course, Hawking being regularly inclined to pontificate on doomsday scenarios in his latter years, the book also has passages with dire warnings regarding artificial intelligence and genetically-modified "superhumans" that could trigger "significant political problems with the unimproved humans, who won't be able to compete".
