Stephen Hawking says afterlife is a fairy story !! There is no God !!
[link to news.yahoo.com]

Renowned physicist Stephen Hawking recently explained his belief that there is no God and that humans should therefore seek to live the most valuable lives they can while on Earth.

Guardian writer Ian Sample asked Hawking if he feared death in a story published yesterday. This was his response:


I have lived with the prospect of an early death for the last 49 years. I'm not afraid of death, but I'm in no hurry to die. I have so much I want to do first. I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail. There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.

Hawking's 1988 book "A Brief History of Time" sold 9 million copies, and in it Hawking referenced God metaphorically as the force that could fully explain the creation of the universe.

But in 2010, Hawking told Diane Sawyer that "science will win" in a battle with religion "because it works."


"What could define God [is a conception of divinity] as the embodiment of the laws of nature. However, this is not what most people would think of that God," Hawking told Sawyer. "They made a human-like being with whom one can have a personal relationship. When you look at the vast size of the universe and how insignificant an accidental human life is in it, that seems most impossible."

Re: Stephen Hawking says afterlife is a fairy story !! There is no God !!
For such a supposed intelligent person he is showing major signs of retarded thinking.
There is no battle between religion or should I say spirituality and science they go together hand in hand... this will become apparent soon.

Mr. Hawking has been spouting some very questionable beliefs, what I want to know is who services his computer?

Like I said on an identical thread. There is nobody ALIVE on this planet to say if the afterlife is real or not. You will find out in your own time and in your own way, and unfortunately, you will not be able to report the results.

Oh my, has Stephen hawking forgotten that the nothingness is actually present? Has he forgotten that the nothingness would not serve a purpose without the nothingness.

And it might not even be there without the nothingness.

Has he forgotten that there is an equation between the two? Antimatter? Realism?

Has he gone to the dark side.

Re: Stephen Hawking says afterlife is a fairy story !! There is no God !!
if Hawking can no longer tell the difference between his personal subjective opinion, and actual science.. then i think the media should just leave him alone.. hes obviously lost something important and may not be for this world much longer.

There is a shadow world, where Death reigns. The hounds of hell assist in the gathering of souls. We are capturing them on video now, with the technology we have. The hounds may be mistaken for horses, but they are hounds. References go way back in myths and legends. Legion. A fascinating study none the less. I believe in the Creator, and heads up, she is pissed off!

We have let our fear of death turn us into a species of retarded clowns.

We must depopulate the earth, starting with these religious embicills. That should just about cover the amount needed to clean the earth.

Maybe we could learn to use our brains for once.

We need ovens people. very large ovens.

I'm down. I'm sick of the religious nutjobery today. I'd kill both sides plus the others if I could, and eliminate all the religious mythology books, along with those that use it to manipulate people.

That would leave only a handful of people, but that's ok.

Human existence is proof of the afterlife. Before you were born, you were in a state of non-life, until you were given life. You think Allah will not do it again?

Re: Stephen Hawking says afterlife is a fairy story !! There is no God !!
Sad he never experienced his spiritual side, we are spiritual beings and I myself have entered 'dimensions' where I felt out of space and time, there is something more than what meets the eye in this world, there is more to life after death.. Its just sad knowing this man will lead many from God just from his reputation of being 'smart' yet, by other top physicists hes not even considered among the top 20 from what he has contributed.

Yes, I've been there too. Altered states etc. Very profound.

After a lifetime of study, I realized you can make yourself believe anything. Anything.

The fact that we are spiritual beings changes nothing about the reality of the world we live in.

We are very delusional.

Next.

How ironic he would come to such a conclusion.

He has made science his false god and alas
