Professor Stephen Hawking predicted the rise of a new race of 'superhumans'

Wealthy will create ‘superhuman race’: Stephen Hawking essays reveal dark prediction

And in his opinion, there's no such thing as the supreme being.

"No one created the universe and no one directs our fate".

He described his claim there is no afterlife or higher power as a "profound realisation". I think belief in the afterlife is just wishful thinking.

Hawking warned that education and science are "in danger now more than ever before".

"There is no reliable evidence for it, and it flies in the face of everything we know in science".

"It feels sometimes like he's still here because we talk about him and hear his voice - and then we have the reminder that he's left us".

"But there is a sense we live on, in our influence, and in the genes we pass to our children".

'There is no God. We have just one life to appreciate the grand design of the universe.

'In a hot Big Bang'.

"We need to employ effective management in all areas of its development", he said.

In his final academic paper, Hawking shed new light on black holes and the information paradox, with new work calculating the entropy of black holes.

'The present world order has a future but it will be a very different one'. "There is no time to wait for Darwinian evolution to make us more intelligent and better natured".

'Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet'.

Those without the means will become relegated to a sub-class of "unimproved humans", he suggests in Brief Answers To The Big Questions due out this week.

The new theory challenges ideas earlier proposed by Hawking himself, including his previous view that the history of the universe has no boundary and that space existed without time before the Big Bang and therefore the universe has no beginning.

According to scientists, the emergence of genetically modified people lead to the fact that ordinary people are or become "low caste", or die.

Stephen Hawking on October 10, 1979 in Princeton, New Jersey.

Hawking saw the world on the brink of a "vast transformative change" when he died, she noted, adding: "He's asking us not to go into the future blindly". Instead, there will be a race of self-designing beings who are improving themselves at an ever-increasing rate.

Laws will be passed to keep genetic engineering under control, but "people won't be able to resist the temptation to improve human characteristics, such as memory, resistance to disease and length of life", he predicts, adding that such breakthroughs will likely happen this century-and be available only to the wealthy.
