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?

I know for a fact that there is a heaven because i have seen it in a vision i had at the age of 13 yrs. old, i was wide awake standing up and i saw it clear as day, the streets of gold, gates of pearl the great walls of the city and the saints of God entering it two by two. Look at everything happening in the world today, it's all in the bible and coming to pass. There is a God and i've seen his power at work many times, i've seen the crippled walk, the blind see, the deaf hear and even the dead raised thru the power of Jesus.

The saddest thing of all is that Kirk Cameron really exists.

AS i see it and have been taught and i believe. Everyone believes in somthing. I would much rather beleieve in my savior when i die then to face the conciquences if God is real as i beleive . have to face him and find out I did not follow his rules. IT's a no brainer to live the life God has chosen for us in the manner in wich he inteded. live good, love all, and you will be free of the science anyways.

Stephen Hawking is brilliant and bases his belief on scientific theory. But he may also base it on the horrible disease he faces every day. My mother suffered from ALS and while she believed in God she wanted to know why she suffered so. If in his position it might be harder to believe in God. However I'm not and I do and I know God does not give people such horrible diseases but our world full of messed up environment contributes to illness and disease. If Christians would stop giving God the credit for all the awful things that happen in this world people like Mr. Hawking may want to get to know Him.

Lisa, I have read the Bible multiple times and if you believe in the actual physical existence of God by reading the Bible then you are high.
From actually reading the Bible you will see that it is terribly dated in what is "promised" to us in the afterlife. Grain? Pheasants? Huh?!? The point I am am making is that you can't take the Bible literally. It does have great stories that teach us right and wrong but actually taking it literally is just delusional.

If anyone wants proof Heaven is real, try reading the Bible....every truth you want to know is right there. God is real, Heaven is real.....one would be an absolute fool to believe otherwise!

My issue with Hawking's "opinion" is just that. It's an opinion. He was simply answering a question about his opinion on death and gave his opinion. His "opinion" could be related to the fact that he has had a terrible disease for the past 40 years and may be a tad bit bitter at "God". My issue with Kirk Cameron is that he is a "holier than thou" type that believes that his faith is right therefore it is his duty to shove it down everyone's throats.
