The idea that the universe was designed to accommodate mankind appears in theologies and mythologies dating from thousands of years ago. In Western culture the Old Testament contains the idea of providential design, but the traditional Christian viewpoint was also greatly influenced by Aristotle, who believed "in an intelligent natural world that functions according to some deliberate design."
That is not the answer of modern science. As recent advances in cosmology suggest, the laws of gravity and quantum theory allow universes to appear spontaneously from nothing. Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the universe exists, why we exist. It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper and set the universe going.

.....Stephen Hawking, by his own admission, is mostly guessing.

Ps:....and one ding fer sure, Hawking is NOT the smartest human who ever lived.

....He may fall within a list of 100+, but NOT da smartest.

Ask Hawking what he knows about da Boson principle. He, also like Einstein 'didn't' bother to think that the Universe could possibly be 'still' expanding'. It was Hubbell that found that out.

BobLoblah 'dabbles' in astronomy (not dat astrology bullschidt) and likes to see vot is happening vey, vey out dere tooooooooooooo.

guess or not, it makes more sense than "an omnipotent being willed the universe into existence to temporarily house humanity while judging them"

All right, I am going to give you the benefit of the doubt: Prove to me how the universe came to existence and where from. Then, I will agree with you that there was never any God at all. If you don't know, by default, I keep the upper hand.

Liar with no proof of god. Study some astrophysics and maybe you won't have to ask random strangers on the internet how the universe came to be..
