Famed theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking finds no room for heaven in his vision of the cosmos.
In an interview published Monday in The Guardian newspaper, the 69-year-old says the human brain is a like a computer that will stop working when its components fail.
He says: "There is no heaven or afterlife for broken-down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark."
Well Mr Hawking, just because your components failed a long time ago, there is no need to take it out on God or religion. I understand you rely almost entirely on computerized devices for you to function normally and when they fail, your life comes to a stop. But I assure you that is no reason to assume humans are like computers! Mr. Hawking we don't believe in God because we are afraid of the dark.
This "scientific" mind is comparing humans to computers and then reasons if life stops for a computer, so must for a human and there is no room for a after life.
In "Grand Design," a book published last year, Hawking had declared that it was "not necessary to invoke God ... to get the universe going."
Hawking is nearly totally paralyzed by motor neurone disease, diagnosed when he was 21.
Hawking says he is not afraid of death, but adds: "I'm in no hurry to die. I have so much I want to do first."
Mr. Hawking tells us in his book titled "grand Design" that it is not necessary to invoke God to get the universe going? So what makes it a Grand DESIGN? Who designed it?! He says he is not in a hurry to die but is not afraid of death. More myths from Mr. Hawking. I suggest that Mr. Hawking is a myth! A motorized myth on wheels!
