Stephen Hawking toon

To discover what Stephen Hawking has learnt since he died, check what he believed before that!  

On God’s existence?

 “Someday we will know everything, i.e. the mind of god, if there were a god, which there isn’t.  I am an atheist.”
Interview with El Mundo, 23 September 2014

On what we are?

“We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star.”
Interview with Der Spiegel October 1988

On Hell?

“If one believed that the universe had a beginning, the obvious question was what happened before the beginning? What was God doing before He made the world? Was He preparing Hell for people who asked such questions?”
Lecture at California Institute of Technology, 16 April 2013, reported in Los Angeles Times 17 April 2013

On the Afterlife?

 “I regard the brain as a computer that will stop working when its components fail.  There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy tale for people who are afraid of the dark.”
Interview with The Guardian, May 2011

In Death and Burial

WESTMINSTER ABBEY IT IS according to BBC New 21 March 2018.  The ashes of Stephen Hawking who died on March 14 2018. will be buried near the graves of Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin.  According to the BBC: The Dean of Westminster, Dr John Hall, said: "It is entirely fitting that the remains of Professor Stephen Hawking are to be buried in the Abbey, near those of distinguished fellow scientists. Sir Isaac Newton was buried in the Abbey in 1727. Charles Darwin was buried beside Isaac Newton in 1882.” He added: “We believe it to be vital that science and religion work together to seek to answer the great questions of the mystery of life and of the universe.”

ED. COM. Interesting burial sequence: Isaac Newton believed in God as Creator, Charles Darwin was an agnostic, and Stephen Hawking lies as an atheist. Darwin and Hawking may both be buried in the famous Abbey, but it is more a continuing comment on Institutional Churches who pride themselves on adulating many whom the Creator God labels as fools. Both groups ignore the only clear answers on the great questions of life found revealed in the written word of God, about the Living Word of God, who is none other than the Lord Jesus Christ, both Creator and Saviour. Hawking’s earthly ashes may have a grand place on this earth, but the eternal soul of all who did not repent have only the friendless thick darkness of everlasting Hell..
