Renowned physicist Stephen Hawking recently explained his belief that there is no God and that humans should therefore seek to live the most valuable lives they can while on Earth.
Guardian writer Ian Sample asked Hawking if he feared death in a story published yesterday. This was his response:
I have lived with the prospect of an early death for the last 49 years. I’m not afraid of death, but I’m in no hurry to die. I have so much I want to do first. I regard the brain as a computer which 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.
Hawking’s 1988 book “A Brief History of Time” sold 9 million copies, and in it Hawking referenced God metaphorically as the force that could fully explain the creation of the universe.
But in 2010, Hawking told Diane Sawyer that “science will win” in a battle with religion “because it works.”
“What could define God [is a conception of divinity] as the embodiment of the laws of nature. However, this is not what most people would think of that God,” Hawking told Sawyer. “They made a human-like being with whom one can have a personal relationship. When you look at the vast size of the universe and how insignificant an accidental human life is in it, that seems most impossible.”

When he reaches the other side of death’s door and steps into the eternal existance he will know the truth. Truth remains true even if no one believes it. Truth needs no one to believe it in order for it to be true. Everyone will die with their own beliefs but only one belief, that one being in the Truth, will give eternal life. Otherwise, all other ways will lead to eternal torment-neverending seperation from the One who gives life which will mean unimaginable sufferings. Jesus said, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to God apart from Jesus, the Christ.
Questions: when will science answer the question as to why there is sinful behavior in each man’s psyche? If there is no God then what is the purpose of being sinful? Why is there evil at all if there is no good (God) to compare it with?
May Stephen Hawkings come to know God, the only true God, and His Son whom He has sent. Let this day be the day of his salvation!
