Stephen Hawking’s statement that heaven is a “fairy tale” was recently confronted by Christian actor Kirk Cameron.
Former Growing Pains star Kirk Cameron called his claims false.
“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,” Cameron says.
“Why should anyone believe Mr. Hawking’s writings if he cannot provide evidence for his unscientific belief that out of nothing, everything came?” the actor continues.
This isn’t the first time Hawking sparks criticism and debate. In his book “The Grand Design” he explains the reason why there is no need for a God by the M-Theory. However, this theory is completely un-testable.
Blogger Rob Kerby, senior editor of BeliefNet, stated that it’s “not the first time that Hawking has been wrong.”
He continues: “Stanford University physicist Leonard Susskind not so long ago disproved Hawking’s adamant contention that, when black holes disappear, they take along with them all information that ever existed inside them. On July 22, 2004, Hawking had to concede to hundreds of colleagues at the 17th International Conference on General Relativity and Gravitation in Dublin that Susskind was right.”
