Stephen Hawking Dies

Stephen Hawking Dies

Legendary physicist Stephen Hawking lived for decades with the prospect of death hanging over his head, but unlike the rest of us, he never worried about what's next. Hawking, who died at 76, spoke candidly in a 2011 Guardian interview about what he believes happens when people die. He told the Guardian that while he "wasn't afraid of death," he was in no hurry to die.

"I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail," he said. "There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark."

It should come as no surprise that Hawking was not religious. In Hawking's 2010 book, The Grand Design, Hawking said a creator is "not necessary" in the narrative of how the world was created.



"The intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment."

It's it amazing how Stephen Hawking is one of the world's greatest scientist yet he has concluded "there is no God" which he is disqualified from stating as fact. His world of the "physical and natural" by definition disqualifies him from passing judgement (as fact) on the unseen. To be an atheist you have to conclude that you know ALL THINGS, i.e. EVERYTHING! What pride. What if God is hiding out in South America? I do hope he had ab encounter with God as Job did before his end.
