I just saw this post over at the great science and religion blog, Irtiqa.  In this guest post, Nidhal Guessoum shares the invited comments he provided to the Times newspaper (UK) in response to the excerpt they recently published from Stephen Hawking’s new book, The Grand Design.  This excerpt has generated a lot of discussion because in it Hawking states that God is not needed anymore when considering the creation of the universe.

I cannot recommend the comments at the end of this post enough re: God as an explanation vs. God as an interpretation.  Outstanding.
