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?

Absolutely there is a heaven!!!! I along with many have faith, which is wonderful! And how many people have had life after death experiences and have shared what they have seen? It exists!!!


ONly God knowes when the end will come I would rather believe there is a God than get there and find out God is real and I haven't prepared. In the book "Heaven is for Real" Colton has been there and sat on Jesus Lap. Out of the mouth of Babes...Truth will be revealed. Jesus said it and I believe it.


Just because Hawking says it does not make it so. Hawking's theories are just speculation about how he thinks the universe was created base on physics formulas that work on paper or in some super computer. Nothing can be observed first hand or proven completely. It's amazing how many people have no tolerance for a dissenting belief against Hawking's speculation, and the unfortunate consequence of this is that many naive people will accept it as the truth when it is not so.


I thought I heard that the world is ending on 05/21/2011. Go out and spend spend spend!! No debt WOHOO !!


Well i don't know who is right and who is wrong cause to me this is really unclear its hard to say i don't know if heaven exists and there is a possibility it does cause to me the evidence is still unclear cause its hard to believe on something that you never saw and you don't know if you will, even though you believe on something you will still have doughts most of you yes, its like when you say at 2012 the world will end and there is a possibility it won't.


Pray for yourself "Honey," and to be relieved of the arrogance of taking the inventory of everyone elses souls. That's God's job, not yours.


The bible says when you die you are as asleep. You know nothing! Your hope is in the belief that when Christ returns you will be resurected if you are one of His. Ascend into the heavens and be with him until he returns with his resurected transformed armies to war with the AntiChrist. Then the 2nd resurection of those non believers or evil ones.


people believe what they want to believe. Just because someone doesnt agree with you, doesnt mean your right & theyre wrong. Live & let live.


all i can say is... Kirk. you are a very, very weak man . your mental state is borderline delusional . you would be safer in a padded room.if you cant provide me with an address or a phone number for either god or jesus then your argument is mute. yes i have read the bible . and well it is just a made up book presented at a time to keep weak minded ignorant people with questions in line. through the studies and writings of religious history the only conclusion that can be proven is that it was more of an out let for sodomy and pedophiles as well as a manner of forgiveness when committing adultery. ( lord forbid if we didn't have societies approval) lol... ha ha .


@randyjacksonsbutt: You said it best! Who appointed Cameron as the God police? He has that typical glazed over, sanctimonious look that all prosthelytizers have. He's a typical, self-aggrandizing know-it-all. BTW, I'm not an atheist. I just can't stand smug religion-freaks. Question: If they're so sure in their faith, why do they need to pontificate to the rest of us? They might say it's to "spread the word" and save everybody. I don't buy it. Their attitude of all-knowing, self-importance belies that motive.
