Kirk Cameron on Stephen Hawking Heaven Theory: WRONG!

by at . Comments

British physicist Stephen Hawking may be one of the smartest humans of all time, but his recent claim that Heaven doesn't exist were guaranteed to generate significant backlash. Enter actor and Evangelical Christian Kirk Cameron.

Hugely active in his church, Kirk says Hawking, who called heaven a "fairy story for people afraid of the dark," has no scientific evidence to back that up.

How can the Growing Pains star say that's the case?

Well, Cameron told TMZ the following: "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."

"Why should anyone believe Mr. Hawking's writings if he cannot provide evidence for his unscientific belief that out of nothing, everything came? [Hawking] says he knows there is no Heaven. John Lennon wasn't sure."

"[Lennon] 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."

There you have it. Kirk Cameron vs. John Lennon and Stephen Hawking, all in one story. Bet you didn't expect that in your daily dose of celebrity gossip!

What do you think, though? Is Heaven legit?

YOUNG CHILDREN CURIOUSITY: "Grandpa, some older people told me that Heaven and Hell do not exist?" "Do you believe if they told you that there is no Sweet Dream nor Bad Dream? What is the meaning of exist? Now you have to travel faraway to the North Pole to see a white bear, but in the afterlife the White Bear and the North Pole suddenly come present in your super consciousness! GOD is a wise Teacher (Guru/Rabb), your dream is the representative sample, and compare it with a computer “Virtual Reality.� I hope you will understand in the future, so be a smart boy?"

TORTOISE (Hinduism) and DRAGON (Taoism) are symbols for ENERGY or WAVE, both are analog with MAGEN DAVID (Judaism). "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" is the metaphor, also Thawaf seven times circling around the Ka'ba and Sa’i oscillating along “the sinus� Marwah-Shafa during rituals of the Hajj (Abraham).
"A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME - From the Big Bang to Black Hole" by Stephen W. Hawking is the best scientific interpretation of AL QUR'AN by a non believer. It is also a “genuine bridge stone� for comprehensive study of Theology. Surprise, this paradox is a miracle and blessing in disguise as well. So, it should be very wise and challenging for Moslem scholars to verify my discovery.

Spare Us Your All-Knowing Lectures You don't "buy" it?Are you kidding me? So the reason that you don't want to be religious is because your afraid of change? Reading your post made me think of a 5 yr old going I DON'T WANNA, I DON'T WANNA. Uh christianity doesn't make one all powerful and all knowing. If you're gonna be reasonable then at least lose the stereotypes that you probably got from an atheist. A christian lives to make YOU feel good. To tell you about God. I don't fear death. That's why there's heaven. Think about this, if I'm wrong, fine we go to nothingness. If I'm right, we go to hell. Take your pick. You know what I find scarier than me going to hell. YOU GOING TO HELL.

papsotherboy Tell me. How did you end up this foolish? Those who believe it the strongest deserve it the least? That doesn't even make sense. So you're saying that if a jew during the holocaust wants to go free, he doesn't deserve to go free, BECAUSE he wants freedom? So if I don't want something, that means I'll get it, and if I do want something that means I won't get it? You atheists really are full of BS aren't you? You're an emo nerd who thinks he's smart because everyone hates him. Bet you feel like a real big boy sitting behind that computer eh? Raol@
We already settled this. Is it just coincidence that the man who lives to disaprove God is also the man CONFINED TO A WHEELCHAIR? WAKE UP PEOPLE. I'm not afraid of dying. Atheists should be afraid. After all hell is alot worse than nothing.

And 1 more thing.Math is a certain..1-1=0
Religion, wheres your proof..again Proof..if you say faith your coping out..Jesus wheres the body anything in hard fact to show he was here. The Bible? Its been 2011 years..plenty of time to write something up about a story..in other words u cant prove it any more then Hawkins can..all you and I can do is wait!! Death is certain and we shall all see whos rite and whos wrong on that day..what u belive until that day is your own porogitive..Every war on this planet in the past 5000 years has been on Religion...whos rite.we shall see.

Can we all and everything we belive in be created by one man? If you think about it in a simple way..our universe has one planet with enough water to suport life. No other planet in our near future can say that..I belive that life as we are humans was a wounderfull accident..to say theres no Heaven..might be harsh to some but amagine WHY the most asked question Do kids die why do inocent people die horible deaths..wheres gods saving grace? A2 year old shot dead..is he in a better place? God wanted him in heaven then why give him life to take it so sudden for his family in horible pain for no reason..wheres the reason in that..I might belive in God but I sure dont understand him at all!!

Cameron jumped on Hawking for supposedly saying that nothing created everything. But Cameron is ok with saying God magically was always here. Where did God come from? Did he come from something, or nothing? Did God create himself? Or did early man create religions to explain things that he could not understand, that we still don't understand. No one wants to believe that there is no afterlife. But where were we when the dinosaurs roamed? Where is your scientific evidence that God exits Kirk?

Anyone who believes there is no chance of there existing a thing---namely, heaven---our human senses can't percieve has some serious logically deficiencies. Anyone who believes there is no chance of a God, of an afterlife, is simply in denial of a very real possibility. Of course, being a Christian Catholic, I believe in much more than a haven and a god---a Savior :)

I think if everyone opened there own eyes about truth and practiced what they preach, read the scripture on there own we would be more closer to god than the domain of satan(earth). Oh yeah stepen hawkings I can definitly see how intelligent he is and beleive has done vast amounts of studying, the only thing is no matter how intelligent a human can be will not make them ever capable of finding one hundred percent about where god is and how he creates anything or anyone and even if they did find god, you can be sure something would happend be it good or bad.

Way to go Kirk Cameron! Standing up for the truth like that, you don't ever see that in Hollywood. But going up against the "genious of Britan" that is kinda like David vs. Goliath, And we all know how that turned out. Steven Hawkings the "smartest man" needs only to just read Genesis1:1..."And God created the Heavens"....to understand the historical and scientific truth. Then he can skip over to Romans 1:22 "Professing to be wise they became fools". Kirk and I will put our faith in the Almighty "physician". Stephan and (papsotherboy) can remain the "villiage idiots" of Britan!
