What part of "theoretical physicist" does Bruce L. Gordon not understand ("Hawking irrational arguments," Opinion, Monday)? Famed physicist Stephen Hawking nowhere claims to have the final answer to the origin of the universe. Instead, Mr. Hawking offers theories based on his highly regarded knowledge of physics. Though not easy for the layman to follow, Mr. Hawking's admittedly speculative theories at least have the merit of being based on independently verified physical principles and mathematical constructs subject to examination.
Mr. Gordon with no logical grounds to deny that the universe can exist eternally and doesn't require a cause because his argument assumes the very thing it is attempting to refute - that something can exist without a cause.
