  • Kirk Cameron slams Stephen Hawking's claims that there is no heaven

    Kirk Cameron has a bone to pick with theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking.

    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.”

    That complete rejection of the existence of God infuriated Evangelical Christian Kirk Cameron, who shot back at the world-famous scientist with his own retort—prove it!

    “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. “Why should anyone believe Mr. Hawking’s writings if he cannot provide evidence for his unscientific belief that out of nothing, everything came?”

    Cameron also took the opportunity to blast the late John Lennon’s agnostic hit, “Imagine.”

    “(Hawking) says he knows there is no Heaven. John Lennon wasn’t sure. He said to pretend there’s no Heaven. That’s easy if you try. Then he said he hoped that someday we would join him. Such wishful thinking reveals John and Stephen’s religious beliefs, not good science.”
