God put me on this earth to accomplish a certain number of things. Right now I am so far behind that I will never die.
The world is so dreadfully managed, one hardly knows to whom to complain.
For every complex problem, there is a solution that is simple, neat, and wrong.

The more you explain it, the more I don't understand it.
Science is a differential equation. Religion is a boundary condition.
Interesting quote but I would disagree somewhat. Science is both a differential equation and a boundary condition. Religion is trying add a new boundary condition which make the differential equation unsolvable.

“To surrender to ignorance and call it God has always been premature, and it remains premature today.”

“When people ask me if a god created the universe, I tell them that the question itself makes no sense. Time didn’t exist before the big bang, so there is no time for god to make the universe in. It’s like asking directions to the edge of the earth; The Earth is a sphere; it doesn’t have an edge; so looking for it is a futile exercise. We are each free to believe what we want, and it’s my view that the simplest explanation is; there is no god. No one created our universe,and no one directs our fate. This leads me to a profound realization; There is probably no heaven, and no afterlife either. We have this one life to appreciate the grand design of the universe, and for that I am extremely grateful.”
― Stephen Hawking
