"I'm always reminded of the great mathematician, a Frenchman called Laplace, who wrote a book called Cosmic Mechanics. And the great Napoleon, who was a highly intelligent man, tried to read this mathematically difficult book. And he got to the end of it and he went to Laplace and said, 'Why is there no mention of God in this book about the Universe?' Laplace said something very profound: 'I had no need of that hypothesis.'
In other words, adding God to the argument makes no difference to the science. If you wish to add God to the argument, I am perfectly happy with that. But the science can stand on its own two feet."
