Stephen Hawking says universe not created by God

A theory is not a guess. It is supported by evidence and observation.

with my limited knowledge on "scientific theory", it is not supported by evidence and observation.

It's an abstraction of a series of events that can be observed.

What? That made no sense whatsoever.

lol. I was thinking the same thing.

Scientific Theory is based on real-world observations.

Religion is based on fairy tale stories and ZERO evidence.

I'll take scientific theory any day.

Problem is that a **** load of people see the word "Theory" and DO NOT have a clue what it really means! Here the word "theory" does not mean a wild guess, quite the opposite!

This explains it in basic terms:

In modern science the term "theory", or "scientific theory" is generally understood to refer to a proposed explanation of empirical phenomena, made in a way consistent with the scientific method. Such theories are preferably described in such a way that any scientist in the field is in a position to understand, verify, and challenge (or "falsify") it. In this modern scientific context the distinction between theory and practice corresponds roughly to the distinction between theoretical science and technology or applied science.
