Stephen Hawking says you cannot think for yourself and therefore should believe what he believes.
He's obviously an authority in critical thinking, so it must be true.

Re: Stephen Hawking says you cannot think for yourself and therefore should believe what he believes.
I dont know about this statement but hawking is a fucking idiot. He only became famous because he is in a wheelchair. If he wasnt he would just be another idiotic physics chap.

Just because someone knows math does not make them wise, indeed, its the complete opposite.

Math makes you tunnel visioned. People get so wrapped up in numbers they always lose thier way.

Someone who observes and experiments with Reality, and draws unbiased conclusions from their empirical explorations.

That would rule out the likes of Hawking, Einstein, Feynmann etc.

Wanker mathematicians who never performed a physics experiment in their worthless lives.

Re: Stephen Hawking says you cannot think for yourself and therefore should believe what he believes.
Would like a source for that quote from Hawking, please.

The dude has spent the last 30 years failing to defend his claim that information gets erased in black holes. Surely he knows he is not omnipotent. Has his ego grown that large? Or is his fear of being on the losing side of the information paradox argument leading him to say such things?

If true, he sounds just like one of those religious authorities he doesn't respect.

The point I'm making is not that he says what the thread title is.

What I'm saying is that somehow, Hawkings beliefs on the afterlife has more validity than your own beliefs, well that does not make any sense to me.

I just don't understand why we have to hear about his views on the afterlife, who made him the authority on these matters?

Not all opinions are equal. Studying the changes that happen in the body at death in a serious way can lead one to an informed opinion on the afterlife. Studying bronze age Palestinian manuscripts makes you an expert on the beliefs of bronze age Palestinians. See the difference?

Hawking = The Devil in disguise.
Then Jesus said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed." John 6:27-58

You adulterous people, don't you know that friendship with the world is hatred toward God? Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.
-James 4:4

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
-Galatians 6:7

Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
-Colossians 2:8

Rev 13:9-10 If anyone has an ear, let him hear. He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; (Betraying your family and friends) he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. (Guns!) Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

We entered a dark cul-de-sac of Unreason around the time of Einstein's ascendancy and takeover of "physics", from which we have yet to emerge.

Because he promotes the Anti-God agenda. Any "scientist" who wants to say that life and the universe is a random accident, or we create reality through our thoughts, or whatever other BS, is always propped up and given a voice by the establishment.

These true SCIENTISTS did the empirical (not "gedanken") experiments, THEN used MATH AS A TOOL, to describe what they found.

Math should be the servant and handmaiden of Physics, not its ruler!

Hawking lives in a wheelchair and communicates via his computer. But hey, what proof is there that he is the one operating that computer, I don't like taking what I am told as being absolute truth, without questioning it. I have often thought that this guy could be a complete dribbling idiot, wheeled around and words are put into his "mouth" (the computer) by other (devious) people. And so far, nothing has convinced me otherwise.
