Read the article “Books of The Times – Many Universes in Stephen Hawking’s Grand Design.” In order to demonstrate your mastery and understanding of the concepts explored so far in the course: a) Do not pay attention to the information about the best-selling characteristics of the book and take as a departure point its main arguments that consist in explaining why God or Gods is (are) not necessary to imagine the beginning of the universe(s). b) Discuss that claim in relation to the existence of a great many (as many as there are religions) religious myths of creation of the world.
