Oh for the day that we realize there is no such thing as religion or science. There is just truth. Part of that truth is that God exists and we are His children.
Be very careful - Hawkings did not prove that G-d is unnecessary - what he proved is that the traditional view of G-d is not relevant in explaining the origins of the universe. Why should this be news to LDS?
For those LDS that deal with hard core scientist that insist that there is no G-d - try this approach. Since evolution will eventually produce an intelligence capable of replicating any event that not only has occurred but is possible - and since the universe did have a beginning - we have proof that intelligence capable of creating the universe if not currently in existence must surly eventually evolve. Thus the argument over the existence of G-d is a pointless discussion. The fact that intelligence evolves and that fact that evolution is a viable possibility to evolve intelligence - then G-d (intelligence capable of creation) does exist.
