We got this from Fox News, so make of it what you will: Kirk Cameron slams Stephen Hawking’s claims that there is no heaven. The bold font was added by us:
Kirk Cameron has a bone to pick with theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking.
Now that you know the players, let’s read on:
Last week, award-winning scientist and best-selling author declared that the belief in heaven or an afterlife is a “fairy story” for people afraid of life after death. “I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail,” Hawking told the Guardian last week. “There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.”
What does Cameron say about that?
“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 teen heartthrob steamed to TMZ [a show-business website]. “Why should anyone believe Mr. Hawking’s writings if he cannot provide evidence for his unscientific belief that out of nothing, everything came?”
This is shaping up to be the intellectual battle of the century. We can’t wait for Hawking’s response.
