Hawking said that there is no God. (1)
Should we care?
The answer: No.
Hawking was a good (not even the best) scientist in his specific field (and there are MANY fields in science). But he is not a philosopher. He actually believed that philosophy is dead. And surely he is not a good theologian.
Modern science is the child of philosophy.
And as every child today, it is cocky and spoiled.
We should not listen to it.
But we should make all efforts possible to teach it…
