Stephen Hawking –
“If we do discover a complete theory…then

human reason—for then we would know the
mind of God….”

Paul Davies –
“I belong to the group of scientists who
do not subscribe to a conventional religion
but nevertheless deny that the universe is
purposeless accident. Through my scientic
work I have come to believe more and more
strongly that the physical universe is put
together with an ingenuity so astonishing
that I cannot accept it merely as a brute fact.
There must, it seems to me, be a deeper
level of explanation….”
