You’re pitting WHO against Stephen Hawking?!

"Suck it, bitch!"

The other day, the world’s most famous living physicist Stephen Hawking made headlines with an off the cuff remark he made about heaven:

“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,” he told the newspaper.

“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.”

And all of a sudden, people went ape shit, and several people called out the genius physicist for his statements. So who were these brave intellects who entered the ring against Stephen Hawking? Evangelical and former child actor Kirk Cameron, for one.

According to Cameron:

“”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. Professor Hawking is heralded as ‘the genius of Britain,’ yet he believes in the scientific impossibility that nothing created everything and that life sprang from non-life,” the former TV star tells E! News.

I do agree on one point. Hawking does have an unfair advantage…actually knowing stuff.

Then ABC Nightly News with Diane Sawyer pitted Hawking against a random 12-year-old kid who we’re told had a near-death experience where he gained access to easily accessible information. ABC even framed the story as one versus the other. It’s almost like this kid had some sort of internet or something.

Then a religious physicist named Scott M. Tyson criticized Hawking with a bunch of logical fallacies, which Steven Novella details in his latest article. And finally, there is some writer for The Guardian who states that he’d stake his life that Stephen Hawking is wrong, which PZ Myers references in his piece explaining how not to argue with Hawking.

I’d love to be able to say there was no clear winner in any of these battles but just look again at the people going up against one of the greatest physicists of our time: an actor, a journalist, a 12-year-old kid? It’s sad that not only do these laypeople think can contend with Hawking but that the media seems to think they’ve got what it takes to be fair opponents. That’s like a boxing match pitting Mike Tyson against…well, a 12-year-old.

Sorry media but it wasn’t even close. The winner and still champion is Hawking, who only wins this battle of wits on the grounds that he’s way smarter than you and is a leading expert in the subject.

  3. Hey jamminjabber…I can`t wait for you to die! Stephen F”#¤%¤#g Hawking is an emaciated,challenged little wort with an ego bigger than the universe.Why his Momma didn`t abort the little Scientist before he saw the light of day mystifies me.Just another materialistic blowhole and self proclaimed champion of lol,logic,reasoning and the “scientific way” who is celebrated by the materialistic morons who fall over every utterance that this physical gimp pronounces in the “name of fu”#king Science”.It is too bad Science lost it`s cherry a long time ago and has now become nothing more than a circus and sideshow for materialistic misfits such as Hawking and Dawkins…two teabags from Slimey Limey land with teabags between their respective ears and probably up their respective asses as well.Science,today,is just another human hustle and the bottom line are grants,allocated funding,prestige et cetera.Much of Science is borderline fraud and Science has been ravished and raped brutally by the materialists who use it to further their own agenda.Please die very soon,Hawking,and take the wretched Dawkins with you and decrease the surplus population by at least two.You are both a useless waste of space and vacuous bags of toxic flatulence.

  4. Long after Gimp Hawking,atheist Dawkins and the rest of their debauched and puerile ilk have expired,God will remain serene and supreme.When Hawking and the wretched Dawkins are nothing more than carbon dust molecules drifting aimlessly in the emptiness of eternal damnation,God will BE!Remember “plausible deniability” is only possible in this dimension because of God granted “FREE WILL” .In the next dimension we believers won`t be subjected to the simian bleatings of materialistic hacks and perverted arrogant atheists.The human trash will be no more and will be forever silent and very dead! Thank God!
