Physicist Stephen Hawking Says There Is No Heaven

In an interview published Monday in The Guardian newspaper, the 69-year-old says the human brain is like a computer that will stop working when its components fail.

"There is no heaven or afterlife for broken-down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark,"

Mr. Hawking, I feel quite sorry that you've lived so long without knowing of the loving Father that you have in a place that you say doesn't exist. You've obviously never witnessed a birth of a child, the unfolding of a brand new leaf on a tree that only weeks prior seemed lifeless and without worth, or been there when a foal was delivered from its mother. All of these have something in common. They are miricles that have come from a place that you say does not exist. That same Father (mine) sent His Son, Jesus Christ to die for your sins, my sins, and the sins of all those in His world. That Son was taken back to Heaven, then returned to earth, and then ascended back into heaven telling all that knew Him then. "Wait, for I am coming back, and when I do all of the nations of earth shall fall to their knees and worship me, and I will take those who have remained strong and in the faith with me," to live in what you call a "fairy tale." I will gladly believe that this God came to earth in the form of a man, was here for a time, was beaten, scourged, lashed with whips, and finally crucified on a cross so that I may live with Him and the Holy Father forever. I find it very sad that a man of such great intelligence cannot find the flaws in his thinking so as to save his life for all eternity. Mr. Hawking, I too am a highly educated man, one of great intelligence also, and I must tell you that you are wrong, so very, very wrong. No one will shed a tear at your loss when the trumpets blow, as for then your computer will no longer exist in this realm. How very sad.
