Heaven is 'a fairy story,' scientist Stephen Hawking says — CNN Belief Blog - CNN.com Blogs

Heaven is ‘a fairy story,’ scientist Stephen Hawking says http://religion.blogs.cnn.com/ The concept of heaven or any kind of afterlife is a “fairy story,” famed British scientist Stephen Hawking said in a newspaper interview this week.

 

In a book published last year, Hawking wrote that God did not create the universe, in what he said was an attempt to banish a divine creator from physics.

Hawking says in the book “The Grand Design” that given the existence of gravity, “the universe can and will create itself from nothing.”


We wonder if it is possible for any humans living on a “speck of dust” like the Earth to say they measured the entire universe and found no God in it. What tools did they use? Wouldn’t it be more honest to say they don’t know?

We wonder if a man suffering from a terminal and debilitating illness could be prejudiced (“why me” behavioral pattern) against the idea of a superhuman being having power over nature.

We wonder how a brilliant mathematician can come to the irrational conclusion that zero can be divided to produce even greater values. Hawking says the universe can create itself from nothing. But the “nothing” he refers to surely must have a quantum distribution greater than zero.

His claim that our greatest achievements in the Humanities (subjects concerned with human culture) were motivated by “a fear of the dark” is not very convincing to other scholars. Has Stephen Hawking forgotten the Drake equation used to estimate the number of detectable extraterrestrial civilizations in the galaxy? Hawking assumes that advanced alien civilizations will have no God or religion. But he can provide us with no real evidence.
