Kirk Cameron

Stephen Hawking is WRONG!!!!!

5/18/2011 4:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Super Christian Kirk Cameron says Stephen Hawking is WRONG about the non-existence of Heaven -- insisting Hawking is just as ignorant as ... (wait for it) ... John Lennon.

Kirk -- who is HUGELY active in his evangelist church -- tells TMZ Hawking has no scientific evidence to back his claim that Heaven is merely a, "Fairy story for people afraid of the dark."

Cameron tells us, "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."

He adds, "Why should anyone believe Mr. Hawking's writings if he cannot provide evidence for his unscientific belief that out of nothing, everything came?"

So how does John Lennon fit in to all this? Cameron explains:

"[Hawking] says he knows there is no Heaven. John Lennon wasn't sure. He 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."

So there you have it ... Stephen Hawking and a Beatle connected through Mike Seaver.

BOOM!

Let's see...who knows more about the nature of the cosmos? A specialist in theoretical physics and applied mathematics who held the same position at Cambridge as Sir Isaac Newton and knows more about cosmology than virtually anyone on the planet or an out of work sitcom actor who believes bananas were made by a magic bearded giant in the sky?

Hmmmm....

They say that people who believe there is a heaven will never know if they were wrong. But I do believe there's a heaven. How can life come from nothing as Hawking is trying to say?
I'm not so sure there's a hell though.

I agree with Phil too - Faith is just another scapegoat expression used by money grabbing "evangelists", priests and other clergy who prey on peoples weaknesses with such phrases as "you should not question God" or "if you dont believe in God you will not see him" or "if you dont believe then you will not go to heaven", and "you dont need to see God you just have to have faith, now pass me the collection tin and give me your child to sexually abuse"...Our worst troubles in the world come from those have used God as an excuse, yet no one has proven that he exists but there have been very very many explanations that he didnt and doesnt.

Every time that moron Cameron opens his mouth it's a never ending trail of verbal diarrhea. And to the guy that refers to "checking your history", you need to remember that Jesus is not "history" but a character from a storybook written before a time where they started placing a warning page that states: "the proceding is a work of fiction. Any similarities with persons living or dead is purely coincidence".

This is so hard. Do I believe a genius who says "I don't believe that something is there because I can't see it, hear it, feel it, smell it, taste it, or learn about it from any credible source" OR do I believe a sitcom actor from the 80's who cites the lack of crocodiles mating with ducks as proof that evolution is a farce? I may have to sleep on this one. Such a tough choice.

To clarify, Kirk thought Hawking was talking about cosmetology, not cosmology. And, in his defense, I would consider him an expert on that, considering he used to wear makeup for a living. Kirk has been informed of his unfortunate misunderstanding, and all is well.

John Lennon and Steven Hawking have brought more to this world then this clown ever will, or could if he tried....Can't prove either story. Maybe John Lennon is god?? Yes, that is it. Instant Karma!
