Stephen Hawking (1944-2018) was a theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and author. Hawking officially died on Wednesday, March 14, 2018 peacefully at his home in Cambridge, England at the age of 76. Many conspiracy theorists have speculated that Hawking had been dead for some time already and was being used as a government science propaganda tool, but for the sake of closure, this article will presume that Hawking’s date of death is accurate.
Hawking’s work included research on black holes, quantum mechanics, and singularity theories.
Hawking theorized that the universe created itself out of nothing and that there was no need for a God to have created it.
Although much of Hawking’s work was theoretical, the scientific world held him in the highest of esteem. The reason Hawking was heralded as a great mind was not necessarily because he was one. Most of the secular ‘scientific’ community has been hijacked by atheism and even the mere mention of God in any scientific discussion is considered taboo and ‘unscientific.’
Hawking undoubtedly was considered a good spokesperson for atheistic science due to his paralysis disability condition brought on by ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). Who could intellectually argue with this poor crippled man, who could only communicate with the aid of a computerized speech-generated voice, without seeming like a physically abusive bully?
The secular scientific community and culture loved Stephen Hawking, not because he was a great scientist, but because he proposed a theory of the creation of the universe without a Creator.
Is Stephen Hawking really a genius, or is he actually just a propped-up tool of the godless secular scientific community?
The following Hawking quotes are addressed and refuted by this retired police officer, minister, and author using faith-based and scientific responses:
“When people ask me if a God created the universe, I tell them that the question itself makes no sense. Time didn’t exist before the Big Bang, so there is no time for God to make the universe in. It’s like asking directions to the edge of the earth; The Earth is a sphere; it doesn’t have an edge; so looking for it is a futile exercise.”
God exists outside of the constraints of His creation. God existed before time began, as He declared, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the Earth,” -Genesis 1:1.
Hawking believed that there was no time for God to make the universe in, however, there was time for the universe to make itself in? Or that a self-created universe can create time, but God cannot exist outside of the boundaries of time and His own creation?
God did exist before time in our universe began. Genesis 1:1 declares so, as well as 2 Timothy 1:9 and Titus 1:2.
As for looking for the edge of the spherical Earth, using an unrelated analogy is not a scientific method or any sort of valid explanation, but I will play along… If one is viewing the sphere from space, one can point to its north, south, east, or west edge.
“We are each free to believe what we want, and it’s my view that the simplest explanation is; there is no God. No one created our universe, and no one directs our fate. This leads me to a profound realization that there probably is no heaven and no afterlife either. We have this one life to appreciate the grand design of the universe and for that, I am extremely grateful.”
“The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God,’” -Psalm 14:1, 53:1. Hawking, considered a genius by many, a can only offer a “simple explanation” that there is no God, no one created our universe, and no one directs our fate.
Hawking’s “profound realization” is that there probably is no heaven and no afterlife either! Probably?
As for me, I am grateful that “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life,” -John 3:16.
“Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the universe exists, why we exist. It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper and set the universe going.”
Spontaneous creation occurring naturally, by accident, or by any means apart from God, has never been observed to occur and in fact violates science, the first law of thermodynamics, also known as the law of the conservation of energy. The law of conservation of energy states that the total energy of an isolated system is constant; energy can be transformed from one form to another, but can be neither created nor destroyed.
Some may argue that the universe, before time began, was not an ‘isolated system,’ but the same scientific principle applies. It has never been observed that matter or energy has come into spontaneous existence by itself.
“There is a fundamental difference between religion, which is based on authority, and science, which is based on observation and reason. Science will win because it works.”
Faith should not be based on authority, but should be based on reasonable observation and logic. Hawking’s theoretical science is not based on observation and reason, but on theoretical speculation. Hawking wasted his entire life, spending it futilely on trying to scientifically prove that God does not exist. Hawking failed. Faith and science are not incompatible with one another, nor are they in competition with each other, so neither faith, nor science will “win.”
God supernaturally created the universe and the universe runs on the science-based mechanical principles that God put in place to govern it.
Is there proof of God?
There is proof of God, a God who can violate the laws that govern His creation, a God who can spontaneously create matter in violation of the first law of thermodynamics, and a God who can restore decaying matter, in violation of the second law of thermodynamics.
Yeshua Messiah (Jesus Christ) performed miracles that can only be attributed to God. His miracles included spontaneous creation, turning water into wine (John 2:1-11), turning five fish and two loaves of bread into many fish and loaves, which fed over five thousand people (Matthew 14:18-21, Mark 6:39-44, Luke 9:13-17, John 6:10-14).
Yeshua (Jesus) also gave sight to the blind, healed lepers, raised the dead, and rose from the dead Himself, demonstrating that God can supernaturally heal and restore what has decayed.
The Holy Scriptures offer eyewitness accounts to the supernatural acts of God through Yeshua Messiah (Jesus Christ). Hawking did not accept any proof of God, so his thoughts became futile and his heart was darkened. He searched for answers and proposed unsubstantiated theories of how the universe came into existence without a Creator. Hawking worshiped the grand design of the universe, but refused to acknowledge and glorify the Designer of the universe.
ROMANS 1:20-22 (NKJV):
For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are
clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His
eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools…
Stephen Hawking was an atheist fool.
