'Curiosity' Exclusive Preview: Stephen Hawking Takes on Creation (Video) - Hollywood Reporter

I was impressed with his explanation of why god cannot exist.

After the main arguments he made, they did have some believers discussing his pov, but they were pretty unconvincing, especially the Christian believers in a personal god.

It's going to be on again August 15th. I wish this was on in prime time as the Neil DeGrasse Tyson one on Fox will be.

I'd like to see that. Thanks for sharing.

What's this about a show coming up with Neil DeGrasse Tyson?

I was considering watching it, but I missed it. I might catch it on the fifteenth.

It was on at 8:00 PM on several cable channels at the same time. Hawkings was very interesting. It took most of the hour for him to slowly, layer by layer, for him to build up his argument. He's an absolutely brilliant person.

Yes Sizzly, I saw him on Bill Maher. The part where he mentioned that congress is filled with a bunch of "I've got to win this argument without any concern for what is BEST for the country" clowns while there is a dearth of members who represent other arenas of life was very profound.
