  1. […] There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is … […]

  2. come on me-me-me.tv, just because I don’t believe in religion (and agree with Professor Hawkings), it doesn’t mean I have no regard for my health, my future, my life.
    Your text , whilst I know is meant to be funny, fails me – and I find it simply misleading.
    There is no reason to make such sacarstic comment on this belief – especially it is not meant to be preachy. Unlike the comments made by religious fundamentalists.
    Professor Hawkings’ statement is merely an explanation of his belief, and not trying to convert anyone..

  3. Not quite sure what you’re saying Truth. Surely the only comment any (sane person) can make regarding religion has to be sarcastic or dismissive. Religion is fallacy for people afraid of the truth. It is not Fundamentalism to suggest we should ignore the judgement of religious people, merely common (ie. educated) sense.

  5. I dunno. It always bothers me when people are so convinced about something there’s no way to know or measure or test or prove one way or the other. I think the religionists are nonsense for their silly beliefs based on some book or other, and I’m afraid Dr Hawking is throwing himself into the same pile with this sort of faith-based pronouncement. I’ll keep an open mind, and then either I won’t exist so it won’t matter, or there’ll be something quite interesting going on.

  7. Who says it wasn’t a comment on reckless behavior? How sarcastic you find it depends on how you feel. (That’s a Madinna line, right?)
    Though if I were Dr H, I would’ve left the ‘afterlife’ bit out of his comment. Would of made the rest so easy to get completely behind.

  8. Professor Hawking is not making faith-based judgments. He is off-of science; faith = belief *in spite* of or without evidence. If I told you that there was an invisible pink unicorn the most reliable tool we have to ascertain whether there is such an animal is science. From all of the available evidence – from all of the available sources – there is no invisible pink unicorn, there is no heaven and there is no afterlife. It’s faith to say otherwise in the face of all of the evidence; it’s also a particular leap of this faith to agree with the rejection of ‘heaven’ and ‘god’ but pall at the idea of no afterlife. – ‘cos there must be something, like a divine force, or an energy or a light’. Nope. Is just death. Zero evidence to show otherwise. Zero. If you believe in an afterlife, that’s faith and your opinion but it is not a fact.
