The Fool Says, 'There is no God' : Stephen Hawking, M-Theory and Creation Comments

The Genesis account ascribes manifestation of this incomprehensibly complex and precisely honed universe to a benevolent, omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient God who transcends time and space. This is, as it goes, the only way to account for a universe teeming with evidence of design, painstakingly engineered and clearly crafted by a superior intelligence that far exceeds man's finite ability to comprehend.

    WHY HEAVEN IS CRYING

    Our Lord and His Holy Mother
    are weeping bloody tears
    as their children don't bother
    to live in perdition gears

    the tears splatter on rocky hearts
    on a demeanor of "who cares"
    as long as we don't feel the smarts
    we'll take care of our own affairs

    walking farther and farther away
    spitting and mocking God in His Face
    denying He made us out of the clay
    worshipping gods of the human race

    we think ourselves so enlightened
    we don't need no Heavenly God
    no more need to be so frightened
    we join gladly the evil one's squad

    while Heaven is crying
    the devils laugh
    the unrepentant dying
    join the devils' staff

    The day will come
    that HE will say :
    "enough, enough
    no more rebuff "

    Then the earthlings
    will cry to no avail
    Joe 6 packs nor Kings
    will escape eternal wail.

    For a rebuttal to Hawkins, I suggest John Polkinghorne...quantum physicist who through his studies and research was called to the priesthood. Quantum Physicist, ordained Anglican Priest. He has his own blog. Find him through google.

    “If my own eternal salvation were conditioned upon saving the soul of one self-wise man who prided himself on his learning, or one hundred of the most morally corrupt men and women of the streets, I should choose the easier task of converting the hundred. Nothing is more difficult to conquer in all the world than intellectual pride. If battleships could be lined with it instead of with armor, no shell could ever pierce them.” Archbishop Fulton Sheen (The Seven Capital Sins)

    The problem with science is that the more you know the harder it becomes to deny the hand of God in all of this.
    In our bodies and the bodies of all living creatures is a remarkable machine.
    That machine is made of ribosomes and chromosomes endoplasmic reticuli and DNA.
    The machine reads a complex code or "program" which specifically denotes a specific protien, chemical, enzyme or structure. It does this repeatedly and largely error free.
    There are no machines in nature. There are no "programs" in nature.
    The "spontaneous" evolution of such a precise machine is mathematically impossible.
    The only way to create a machine is to design it and produce it.
    The only explanation is God.
    That is the basic premise that is ignored and all of the theoretical physicists in this universe or all of the parallel universes cannot overcome that basic fact.
    The only thing their ponderings and musings and discoveries has done is shown HOW God did it. Not that He did not do it.

    I find the title of this piece inappropriate. Stephen Hawking is not a fool and did not say “There is no god”. He said “the universe did not require a deity to create”. Thus we reach God through Faith not science. A recent article in Catholic Online by Father James Farfaglia on Faith said it best. “Faith is an immense gift from God. It is through the gift of faith that we are able to see the invisible in the visible world.”

    Our Father in heaven, who at the beginning of time, created the first light and the first day, you created the universe, the heavens and the earth in six days and you rested on the seventh day. Blessed are you in your rest and in your creation, from the farthest stars among the heavens, to this earth our present home, so full of life, warmed and lighted by the sun. And ourselves, human beings, created in your image, male and female created by you. Thank you for giving us this honor. Thank you giving us life. Amen

    Mathematics has infinity, and religion has eternity. I find these to be mutually acceptable.
    In this sense, mathematics has proven eternity to me. My faith grows stronger as I study
    both science and religion. Science reveals the big bang as the Creation, and to truly feel love in your heart is the presence of the Divine.

    A man can no more extol God's glory by worshipping him than a lunatic can ignite the sun by scribbling the word "light" on the walls of his cell.

    See, it works both ways.

    This should go without saying, but there's also "zero proof" to back up your claim of a god.

    "The multiverse theory - to the extent it can be called a theory (there's exactly zero evidence to support it)"

    Matches the zero evidence to support the existsnce of a god then.
