Heaven is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark. Agree or disagree?

Prof Stephen Hawking, the eminent Cambridge scientist and cosmologist, has dismissed heaven as a “fairy story for people afraid of the dark”.

He's been quoted as saying "I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail.” and “There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.”

So do you agree or disagree?

Agree, but can see this falling into an argument rather than discussion.

Agree, when life ends thats it. As a metaphor just picture some one shoot a big block of ice with a sniper rifle and watch it shatter, thats what I think will happen. Once the debris has settled you cease to exist.

How could they remove his OS and give him tourettes? Surely in his case it's one or the other?

I'm not overly religious myself but if people find comfort in the belief that there's something after death then I think that's a good thing and I don't see the harm in it. I wouldn't dismiss it as a fairy tale, everyone is entitled to their beliefs

I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail. **** WOW, tell that to the families of Alzehiemer victims, thank you Mr computer voiced wheelchair man, genius indeed!

It still works to some degree. It has just become corrupt..

The computer in that case has a virus.

And he wonders why God turned him into a dribbling spastic with an American accent?

Who the **** put Stephen Hawking in charge of things?

God did. God loves robot voices. And wars, of course. And aids. And there was that one time he totally nailed that virgin.

In after disabled Stephen Hawkin gets personally abused for expressing his views on fairy stories.

so the ppl who don't accept ""heave or hell",shouldn't fear death at all then.right?.....infact they are the one who are afraid of dark the most.because of their action,they near to their death know that they will go to hell....

Well, we will all find out one day - some sooner than others.

BTW. You can never be afraid of the dark if you are walking in the light.

People who believe in heaven and hell shouldn't fear death as they should all be going to heaven. Why on earth would you be bad in life if you truly believed in hell????

because of sins and belief of god in wrong way......or definitely not believing god at all.

I'm afraid of the dark. Without realising, I might be standing next to a retarded fool wearing a rucksack packed with explosives. Apparently the retarded fool goes to heaven to have his way with 48 virgins, while I go to hell.

Or maybe its just a case of life wasted through stupidity and the bits left will be enjoyed by worms. Hmmm. That sounds awful. . . I think I'll make up a more appealing end. Oh wait!

what ever you believe you will know it one day but just to do a bit mercy on your self by thinking about it for few mins that why on earth you are here in this world?......and there is no coming back from death and fixing up your self again,it wouldn't matter where,you will believe it after death,cuz after death you will know the truth any way.....

I live a decent enough life with fairly similar values to the bible anyway. If there was a heaven I, and people like me, should be at the front of the queue for living a decent life without being forced/threatened/blackmailed/brainwashed into doing so.

Thats the thing, once you have returned to nothing its end game. It would be great to say "told you so" but obviously as worm fodder you'd never hear it.

But it begs the question why all your inhabitants of heaven dont go giving a sign! (though i expect earthquakes are a sign from hell. Amirite?)
