Famous physicist Stephen Hawking delivered his ultimate reflections on ten questions in a posthumous book, titled "Brief Answers to the Big Questions".

"There is no God". In one of his works of the late British scientist, described the likelihood that genetic engineering can create new human species that will destroy other members of our species.

The award-winning author and scientist Stephen Hawking, who spent most of his adult life dealing with a slow moving form of ALS, died last March at age 76. They're just not "God" in the Judeo-Christian-Muslim sense of the word.

"This is nearly a response to the response to 'A Brief History of Time, '" Lucy Hawking, the scientist's daughter, said during the panel.

"He says in the book, people want answers to the big questions, and it was really important to him that he answered all these questions in a way that was accessible, that was engaging, that was entertaining, and that people could relate to", Lucy Hawking said.

Daughter of the scientist, Lucy Hawking, reportedly revealed that his father realized that people specifically wanted his answers to the questions such as if there is God.

Hawking said he preferred to think that "everything can be explained another way, by the laws of nature".

"I think that reading through the book again, it's nearly like his voice has been leaping off the page as I've been reading through the chapters, and it's been very nice to connect with him again in that way", Timothy Hawking added. 'Some people won't be able to resist the temptation to improve human characteristics, such as size of memory, resistance to disease and length of life, ' he wrote.

Saudis conclude Khashoggi died after a fight broke out in the consulate
President Donald Trump reportedly wants to meet with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman before any further action is taken. Khashoggi's death, and we offer our deepest condolences to his family, fiancée, and friends".

"Travel back in time can't be ruled out according to our present understanding", he says. He also predicts that "within the next hundred years we will be able to travel to anywhere in the Solar System".

"I feel sometimes like he's still here because we talk about him and we hear his voice and we see images of him", she said, "and then we have the reminder that he's left us".

And he raised a very good question: "How good is the track record of the human race in using advances in technology for the good of ordinary people?"

Providing his thoughts on what lies beyond the Earth's atmosphere, Hawking argues that there is more out there than what we know.

British theoretical physicist professor Stephen Hawking gives a lecture during the Starmus Festival on the Spanish Canary Island of Tenerife on September 23, 2014.

Hawking's final message on how we can shape the future is that we should "Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet".

Further explaining in his book, Hawking mentions that other than leaving Earth, humans have no other option to avoid being "annihilated".

Do you agree with Hawking's theories?
