HEAVEN IS A FAIRY TALE
Says Steven Hawking

May 17, 2011




What? There's no heaven? No pearly gates? No afterllife? We're going through all this torment in the earhly plane for nothing? Say it ain't so Stevie, say it ain't so!
(INTERNATIONAL) -- One of the world’s most renowned scientists, teachers and authors, physicist Stephen Hawking has gone on record saying he is of the opinion there is no afterlife, and that the concept of heaven is a "fairy story" for people who fear death.

In an interview in the British newspaper The Guardian Hawking, author of the best selling book "A Brief History of Time,” said that when the brain ceases to function, that's the end.

"I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail," he said. There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark."

Hawking, now 69, has survived for nearly fifty years with a severe and debilitating motor neuron disease that doctors believed would kill him while he was still in his early 20s.

Hawking said during the interview he does not fear death and that having lived with the prospect of death from his incurable illness has ultimately led him to enjoy life more.

It is not unusual to find people involved in the sciences who do not believe in God or an afterlife but it is somewhat unusual for them to proclaim that that during an interview.
