Hawking doesn’t mince words
I find it hard to argue with anything Stephen Hawking has to say. It’s not just that he’s brilliant (few would deny this); he’s also witty and humorous, and we’re in almost complete agreement when it comes to the supernatural. A few days ago the Huffington Post put up a story about him denying the existence of heaven, and reading the rebuttals of religiously inspired dummies was depressing to say the least. Allow me to include my favorite boneheaded comments:
I feel for Stephen Hawking, not because he’s paralyzed, but because he has missed the most important aspect of life…..love. He has mastered the analytical mind and has been lauded as the most brilliant man alive, but he is not the last word about the afterlife. He is not privy to that knowledge because it can only be accessible to those with an open mind and an open heart. Has Stephen ever dared to fall in love? I don’t know, but I imagine not. I can only imagine a concrete wall around his heart preventing any microbe of love to ever come near. It would not only destroy him, but all he has striven to prove with his analytical mind. Stephen, you will enter heaven on earth the minute you surrender to your destruction. I promise.
Um, he had a wife and he has children, whom he loves very much, you fucking ignoramus. Feeling the emotion of love has nothing to do with the fairytale bullshit you believe in. Honestly if you think believing in nonsense is the only way to be a good person, you are a moron, no bones about it.
oh Mr. Hawking, ye of little faith…guess we won’t be shooting the breeze in heaven.
What a shame. I bet he would have loved to talk to you…
Now, heaven may say, “There is no Hawking”
I’m sure he’s fucking terrified.
