Okay, I've heard that in Stephen Hawking's new book, The Grand Design, he claims that the law gravity somehow created the universe from nothing. Can any of you give me a conceptual understanding of how this could occur?

What I believe he means is the Universe's physical laws and our mathematical descriptions of them ultimately made the universe inevitable.

Okay, no duh. So, we've basically come back to an Aristotelian type First Cause?

Does it really matter what one man believes, or two if you include Leonard Mlodinow? Their beliefs don't reflect the census of the scientific community.
