Hawking’s final comment on the video is “We need to know we are not alone in the dark.” Of course, the Christian believes we already know the answer to this question. We are not alone. Christians believe there is an author to human history, who has revealed to us how it all will end.
This is a good reminder that both the atheistic version and the theistic version of reality end in apocalypse. One story begins in chance, is governed by nothing, and is headed towards likely extinction. The other story begins with Mind, is permeated by Providence, and is heading towards the reversal of the curse and the establishment of a new creation.
Choose your story wisely.
