Some logical absurdities from The Grand Design:

“Because there is a law of gravity, the universe can and will create itself out of nothing.”

“The universe can and will create itself from nothing.”

The book simply demands faith in M-theory, making it into a surrogate God. My review comment about this book that was published in the Mumbai Mirror article here:
