Is Stephen Hawking Rational?

Posted: May 23, 2011 by Amy Hall in Intelligently Designed, Truth Matters

In a recent interview, Stephen Hawking said, “There is no heaven or afterlife for broken-down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.” But how reasonable is his worldview, really? Alan addresses this question in this week’s featured article:

“It is not necessary to invoke God to…set the Universe going,” concludes Stephen Hawking in his book, The Grand Design. Denying God is old hat, but this comes from a world-class theoretical physicist. That’s why Christians are unnerved by his bold claim. A statement from a scientist of his caliber commands attention. But it turns out there is no reason for concern. Everything Hawking has written in his book can be dismissed as irrational. Everything. Let me tell you why.

Stephen Hawking has a problem. If he’s right in his view of reality, then he’s irrational. But if he’s irrational, he’s not likely to be right. Read “According to Stephen Hawking, He’s Irrational” to find out more.

    Fascinating post! I’ve heard from somewhere else of his views on determinism. I think from Ravi Zacharias.
