Hawking's dismissal of God, Br. Consolmagno says, is based not only on his incorrect designation of physical laws as “nothing,” but also on a failure to grasp the notion of God's transcendence. As such, he concluded, Hawking was really dismissing a kind of “god” in which Christians do not believe. In fact for Br. Consolmagno God is the reason why existence itself exists.
