Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time and the Teleological and cosmological arguments
MetadataShow full item record
The author argues that Stephen Hawking makes implicit reference to and attempts to undermine two classical arguments for the existence of God: the teleological and the cosmological arguments. Further, the author shows that, in fact. Hawking\'s \"No Boundary Proposal\"—even if it were to be empirically verified—would not entirely discredit these two arguments, but would, instead, transform them into epistemic icons that reveal the immanent presence of God in the cosmos.
