Yes, Mr. Hawkins did a great job at explaining the mechanics and that no "god" is needed to set events into motion.
I continued to watch the follow up "discussion" that air just after this episode and found that the issues were being danced around. The Christian Theologian basically said that "my god can do anything and no amount of evidence will change my mind" - typical. The other scientists that were guests basically said that science can only explain "HOW and WHY" not "WHO".
The theologian will have to be shown irrefutable evidence that the belief structure they follow and advocate was made up by humans and not divinely inspired. This left me with the feeling and reaffirms my understanding that the typical human needs some kind of direction or explanation, to feel worthy to live, and cannot accept that "we are - what we are - no more - less".
The typical human is us. We are a relatively bottlenecked (genetically) species and I don't think the raw material is that diverse - including our psychology. I'm sure I have roughly the same inclination toward belief and faith, fear of the Others, etc. but credit a childhood environment for allowing me to break free of the ambient superstition. Millions now have this advantage. Our job is to work to keep rational alternatives available to the young - secular public education, free speech, respect for science, etc.
