“The foolishness of man”

“Heaven is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark” Steven Hawking.

Prof Hawking is well-educated in applied mathematics and a theoretical scientist and has concluded that there is no heaven and no afterlife. In his latest book, The Grand Design, Prof Hawking claimed that no divine force was needed to explain why the Universe was formed. Relying on science and “his computer” (his marvelous brain) to explain the world in which we live in. Even though science and man are limited in what can be measured. Hawking trust is in mans speculation and science alone.

But what is the reason for the conscience of man, the complex emotions and our spiritual needs. Something we all experience as humans and can’t be denied. Why do we question the purpose for our lives? Do the animals of the field struggle with this? No they exist as they were created to exist. We however are wonderfully made in the image of our creator the Father God of Heaven and Earth. We are Flesh, blood and spirit.

 1 Cor 2 :We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. 7 No, we declare God’s wisdom, a mystery that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began. 8 None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 9 However, as it is written

   “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, 
and what no human mind has conceived”[b]— 
   the things God has prepared for those who love him—

 10 these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit.

As a believer reading this scripture I feel truly blessed that God has revealed himself to me by his spirit. That indeed is the miracle of salvation, to change the heart of man. As Tim Vince said on ‘God morning’ regarding Hawkings comments “open your heart and let God in”  

Ps14:1 The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”

    To equate (or confuse) the level of intelligence that’s posessed by Mr. Hawkins with insight is a bit like analyzing a forest in order to disprove the existence of trees…gotta love the guy though, he’s quite incredible!

    I see the root issue as man’s heart. Those who reject God, or the concept of God, will necessarily seek out arguments that sustain their position. It makes no difference how academic you are, or whether you claim to be a seeker of truth. It’s a form of judgement in the end, and it has pleased the Lord to keep such blind to their prejudices.

    Definition of a prejudice.
    A prejudice is a prejudgment, an assumption made about someone or something before having adequate knowledge to be able to do so with guaranteed accuracy.

    Hey JP, I think you might find that Prof Hawkings has stopped short of saying there is no God but has stated that he sees no need for a miracle in the creation of the universe. He has always pondered how the universe came to be, and in his mind has conceived a theoretical mechanism (admittedly, purely theoretical and consisting of at least 12 dimensions…..) of how it could have happened. Thus, in this scenario, there is no need for a miracle and hence a God. He does not say, to the best of my knowledge, that there is no God. He sees great wonder in the creation, but not the creator. Who knows, maybe one day he will.

      Thanks Bradders,
      I stand corrected! although he may not actually be saying the words there is no God, that is what he is saying if you know what I mean. I appreciate your comments and will try to be more accurate. Hope my amendments meet with your approval.


      • Bradders says:

        Wasn’t trying to correct you really JPD, just to say that he still seems to be open enough to distinguish between explaining a phenomena and the existence of God. What does happen is that the media portray him as saying this, or even claiming that he implies it. Grrr, bad, bad media!

        Keep up the blogging, I might read a few more now.
