Newtonian gravity was then the only serious theory of gravity, but the flaws in theory had pushed scientists to consider if there was a better theory waiting to be discovered.

Hawking side-steps the issue: if space-time is a self-contained continuum without boundaries, as the quantum theory of gravity implies, it is meaningless to talk about what happened at or before its origin (which would be a boundary).
