I'm not aware of any peer review of the claim, which goes out of it's way to poke the almighty.
"It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper and set the universe going."

Has Hawking lost it? Or are we about to witness the victory of a single, wheelchair-bound genius over the forces of Yahweh?

I'll be praying for the latter.
