Kirk Cameron thinks Stephen Hawking has “absurd Ideas”

Guess who managed to weasel his way into the news? It’s everyone’s favorite “ex-atheist”, Kirk Cameron, criticizing Hawking for declaring that Heaven is a fairy-tale. He posted this on his Facebook page:

to say anything negative about Stephen Hawking is like bullying a blind man. He has an unfair disadvantage, and that gives him a free pass on some of his absurd ideas.

That’s not passive aggressive in the slightest. He’s right: science must seem absurd to someone as ignorant as Cameron. Black Holes deteriorating over time? The Universe not needing a prime mover in order to exist? It’s enough to make anyone’s head explode, especially when that head happens to be jam packed with crazy bullshit.

What really irritates me is when clowns like Kirk are given a spotlight for regurgitating the same old tired non-arguments. Faith is not evidence. Belief is not evidence. Yet the likes of Cameron would dilute objective truth to fit their narrow world views, and the media gladly provides them a platform to accomplish this. How many gullible fools have been lured by their promises of eternal life and a paradise awaiting the obedient? Presumably a few more now.

This other passage really irritates me:

(Hawking) says he knows there is no Heaven. John Lennon wasn’t sure. He said to pretend there’s no Heaven. That’s easy if you try. Then he said he hoped that someday we would join him. Such wishful thinking reveals John and Stephen’s religious beliefs, not good science.”

What the fuck does he know about good science? This is the same brilliant mind behind the “crocoduck” anti-evolution argument for god’s sake. And if he thinks Lennon’s “I hope some day you’ll join us” message is religious in nature, he’s only proven how hollow his “ex-atheist” claim is.

    Stephen Hawking has an “unfair disadvantage”? Hawking has a disease of the body, not of the mind.

    “John Lennon wasn’t sure”? I think the song ‘Imagine’ heavily implied Lennon’s opinion of the existence (or not) of heaven.

    If heaven does exist and it goes on for eternity, then it will be hell because eventually even the best of things get dull, boring and then intolerable.

    Nick, you beat me to it. “Unfair disadvantage”. In the only race that counts, Hawking has more than enough faculties and capability to outdo Cameron. Imagine if Cameron had the stones to at least walk a day of Hawkings life, and interact with towering minds and actual big questions, not the senseless crap Cameron busies his little mind with while sitting in church. I’m not even saying Cameron has to experience Hawking’s disease; I’m just talking about what Hawking and other scientists do day in and day out.
