Comment 9 by Agrajag :

It no longer matters:-

There used to be that awful fellow Dawkins (at Oxford) who dished religion, and that nice chap Hawking (at Cambridge, in the wheelchair), who talked about "god". People got them confused. No one liked the nasty Dawking atheist in a wheelchair.

Now they will merge forever in the minds of the dense as the epitome of evil.

But seriously, I'm pleased Hawking has cleared up the ambiguity:-

The physicist's remarks draw a stark line between the use of God as a metaphor and the belief in an omniscient creator whose hands guide the workings of the cosmos.
