ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's views on the claims of physicist Stephen Hawking and evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins on the non-existence of God. He states that Hawking's claim that the Universe created itself is contradictory with the physicist Isaac Newton's fundamental theory that nothing in the Universe can move on its own. Moreover, the author believes that Dawkins' understanding of the Universe is very limited and his claims that God does not exist are self-contradictory.
