What does science say about the origin of the universe and the existence of God. These are the questions Kathy asked scientist priest Fr. Robert Spitzer on his recent visit to University College Dublin. Popular scientist Stephen Hawking says that at the beginning of everything the universe came into being from nothing, proposing the notion that something can come from nothing. He also said that for the universe to come into being, there was no need for a creator - in other words, creation came into being by itself. Kathy and Fr. Spitzer examine Hawking's extraordinary claims and speculate on the reasons why some in the scientific community, especially those in the popular media, ignore the new proofs for a 'transcendent creator.'
