No-one in this thread has made that claim David. It's something you just made up and our now criticising as if it bears any relevance to this thread. It doesn't.

In effect they most definitely ARE assuming that Stephen Hawking knows best, in spite of the logical inconsistencies of his claim concerning the origin of the universe.
PS, have you not heard of the theory of "inflation", under which the entire universe has the same fundamental constants? It is widely accepted, and I am shocked that you did not even bother to mention that you reject it (by implication).
