Answering Hawking: A Conversation with Fr. Robert Spitzer, S.J.

This past Friday, Larry King hosted Stephen Hawking for a discussion of Hawking’s new book, which he co-authored with Leonard Mlodinow. After the one-on-one with Hawking, Larry moved to a panel that consisted of Mlodinow, Deepak Chopra, and Fr. Robert Spitzer, S.J., former president of Gonzaga University and founder of the Magis Institute for Faith and Reason.

Given that Mlodinow is now hard at work on a book with Chopra, Fr. Spitzer found himself debating not only Hawking’s argument that God isn’t necessary to work out an origin of the universe, but also a sort of tag-team of anti-theists, but without anything like the time necessary to even quickly knock down the obvious and enormous flaws in the anti-theist position.

I thought it would be useful to provide Fr. Spitzer a greater length of time to counter the massive amount of press that Hawking generated as he enters the lists of high profile anti-theists that has grown so crowded these past few years.

Fr. Spitzer will join me today in hour two. His most recent book is New Proofs for the Existence of God: Contributions of Contemporary Physics and Philosophy,

New Proofs for the Existence of God: Contributions of Contemporary Physics and Philosophy

and Five Pillars of Spiritual Life: A Practical Guide to Prayer for Active People
