Katt Williams

Hawking is a 'Cripple with a Bad Idea'

5/18/2011 8:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

If Stephen Hawking does not believe in God ... then he's "just another crippled guy with a bad idea" ... so says comedian Katt Williams.




Katt was out in L.A. last night when we asked about Kirk Cameron's pro-afterlife response to Hawking's suggestion that Heaven does not exist.

Williams explained, "Kirk Cameron is brilliant" ... adding, "God still runs this earth, Satan's breath still stinks."

Only idiots believe in "invisible giants", I suppose they don't believe in evolution either? Oh, right, they think we lived with Dinosaurs like the Flintstones!

I think what Stephen Hawking's said was a bit insulting, because people aren't Christians (or other religions) because they're scared of death. Often, actually, it's far more complicated than that. It's cultural. Society and upbringing play a huge part. Faith plays a part. I think Hawking's statements were somewhat forgiveable though, because they were based on years of studying how the universe works and tangible evidence. What this guy and Kirk Cameron said was near total nonsense that can be countered with high school science. It doesn't help their position at all. It makes them look like idiots. If they said they believed because they have faith I think that's a bit more respectable than trying to counter a very clever man with nonsense, and I'm an atheist. I think if people like Kirk Cameron had their way we'd go back to a literal interpretation of the Bible, which would take us 100s of years back technologically, societally, legally and economically. I don't think many people have any idea how much stuff a literally interpreted Bible contradicts.

Hey Katt D-bag, do some research before running your mouth. He's not crippled...you f'n idiot. Mr. Hawking has an incurable disease that will eventually end his life. It's called Lou Gehrig's disease, ALS, and it is the most devastating disease you can possibly imagine. Go visit some people and family members who have dealt with this disease and you might learn something, cause it ain't pretty. I know this first hand, so, yes I know what I'm talking about. In the mean time STFU and go about your lame comedy gig.

So, Obama's comment about the "Special Olympics" is wrong but this comment calling one of the best physicists in the world a "cripple" is right?

The last time I checked... Kat Williams was a comedian... :) LOL... People get SERIOUSLY touchy over things like this... and I'm sure a lot of spiritual people might feel the way he does... he's appealing to his audience, and people with little to no sense of humor are attacking him... Classic move folks... :)

@DreaYeya Ad hominem attacks are said when the other person lacks a strong argument.

Kirk Cameron is like all the other sheep out there. Living in his little box and moaning and groaning when someone challenges him. If Katt Williams wants to say that Kirk is right that is his perogative. How surprised he will be on that day when he dies and all that happens is someone throws shovels of dirt on you and lays you in some box and forgets about you. Heaven is not real. Hell is not real. The only thing real is this life we live through day by day. Stop preaching and hating and start treating people like that alleged God you speak of.

What an insensitive jerk this Katt guy is!!! What if a white person called a black quadriplegic a "cripple with a bad idea?"

How ironic, the dumb, uneducated fool is calling a genius a "cripple with a bad idea." Religious thoughts bring all the dummies out, who cannot make intelligent cohesive statements without ad hominem attacks!! Shame on you Katt! (whoever you are - because I never heard of you before.)

Katt Williams is just a loser with a crippled career, and Kirk Cameron is a fool who hides behind religion to spew his hate and bigotry. If these are the type of people who are going to heaven I will proudly go to hell. As Mark Twain once said, "You go to heaven for the climate, to hell for the company."

Funny how a black guy can call someone a 'cripple' but if said 'cripple' called said black guy a derogatory african american term we'd all be hearing from Al Sharpton within 10 minutes. Luckily, Hawking is classy enough & intelligent enough to not concern himself with the agitations of people of no importance. Especially considering the more important things in life he needs to focus on, like the fact that Heaven & God belong in an Aesop's Fables book.
