I can understand why hawking feels this way.
he exchanged his youth and his body for a wicked intellect.
it seems more and more he is only a bitter old man, pissed at god, and able to compose books on the subject.
Not sure I wouldnt be in the same boat if I were as messed up as he.
Never the less, I disagree with him entirely as of his later "ideas".
So it is okay for smart people to disbelieve of god, and it is okay with stupid people to believe in god?

Hawking: Godless, mindless, soulless and hopeless
In "The God Within," Adams takes aim at famed physicist Stephen Hawking, author of the book "The Grand Design." In that book, Hawking claims that human beings are merely "biological machines" with no consciousness, no souls, no spirit, no mind and nothing but a collection of organized chemicals that run physical brains in a deterministic machine-like way.
