If you're a man of logic, you may be interested in the paradox found within Christian theology, which is the paradox of substance dualism.
I also hope you know that the man who said "God is dead" was a man of God.
Professor Jon Lennox says that there is not 1 but 3 errors of logic in Hawkings statement," Because there is a law such as gravity the universe can and will create itself from nothing." It all boils down to circular reasoning. Hawkings is saying that the Universe exists because it needed to exist and because it needed to exist it created itself. He hasn't proven anything.
