Stephen Hawking Was an Atheist. Here’s What He Said About God, Heaven and His Own Death




11:12 AM EDT

For more than 50 years, death was a poignant part of Stephen Hawking’s remarkable life.

The physicist, who died Wednesday at age 76, wasn’t expected to see his 25th birthday, after being diagnosed with the incurable neurodegenerative condition ALS at age 21. Though Hawking beat the odds for more than five decades, the scientist told theGuardian in 2011 that death was never far from his mind.

“I have lived with the prospect of an early death for the last 49 years,” Hawking said. “I’m not afraid of death, but I’m in no hurry to die. I have so much I want to do first.”

Here are some of Hawking’s most interesting thoughts about death, the afterlife and God.

Hawking didn’t believe in heaven

The scientist took a pragmatic view of what happens to the brain and body after death.

“I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail,” he told the Guardian. “There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.”

He believed in an ‘impersonal God,’ but not a creator

Hawking invoked the name of God in his seminal book A Brief History of Time, writing that if physicists could find a “theory of everything” — that is, a cohesive explanation for how the universe works — they would glimpse “the mind of God.”

But in later interviews and writings, such as 2010’s The Grand Design, which he co-wrote with Leonard Mlodinow, Hawking clarified that he wasn’t referring to a creator in the traditional sense.

“Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the universe exists, why we exist,” he wrote in The Grand Design. “It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper and set the universe going.”

Using language about God, Hawking told TIME after the book’s release, is more figurative than literal.

“God is the name people give to the reason we are here,” he said. “But I think that reason is the laws of physics rather than someone with whom one can have a personal relationship. An impersonal God.”

Hawking considered himself an atheist

Hawking spoke more plainly about his thoughts on God in an interview with Spanish publication El Mundo.

“Before we understand science, it is natural to believe that God created the universe. But now science offers a more convincing explanation,” he said“What I meant by ‘we would know the mind of God’ is, we would know everything that God would know, if there were a God, which there isn’t. I’m an atheist.”

But still thought the universe had meaning

Though Hawking rejected the conventional notion of God or a creator, he fundamentally believed that the universe and life have meaning, according to the New York Times.

“Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist,” Hawking said of the meaning of life. “Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at.”

What Real Magic Really Is

What Real Magic Really Is


I can only speak about how things are here in the States as the only other country that I have ever visited is Canada and it has been about ten years since I have been there. I hope that other countries are not as goofy and ignorant as the masses here in the States when it comes to the so-called supernatural. If we pay any attention to the type of pictures shows at the movie theaters as well as television programs one would almost have to notice all the supernatural movies that do well. I will admit that my bride and I do like some of these shows also, we like to watch the programs Sleepy Hollow, Forever, Merlin, and Resurrection. We do tend to avoid most of the vampire, werewolf, and Witch type programs, but admittedly not all of them. We here in the States love our Super Heroes who can do super human things. We even tell ourselves there are such things as “good witches” and “good vampires”, we at times are quite foolish you know. Think of the Harry Potter programs and all of the good Witches and Warlocks, and of course all of us gullible “Muggles”. We watched and enjoyed these programs also, but to the weak or young impressionable mind, the seeds are sown.


Some Christian Churches tell their congregations that there is no such thing as Witches and Diviners even though the Scriptures are very plain that such people do exist. I do believe that here in America about 99% of the people who say they can see your future, if you have the cash, are just frauds. But, 99% is not 100% is it? Some Churches tell their congregations that there has been no magic abilities since the last Apostle of Christ died about 1,920 or so odd years ago. Doing this they do greatly err, this is saying that both God and Demons do not exist here on our plane, or, not at all. This is ignorance, this is saying that there is no such thing as evil, that all the horrible, mean, and hate filled people throughout the past 2000 years were just mean, not evil. The Devil does his greatest evil in convincing the world that He doesn’t really exist, and that God does not exist either.


I am going to finish off this post with this one main point as indeed the whole post comes down to this one issue. There are people who have Demons inside of them and there are people who are truly filled with the Spirit of God just as assuredly as there are Angles of Light and of the Dark. Here is the point friends, if you see a person who does real magic and by this I am not talking about illusionist or tricksters, but real magic, a person needs to understand that this is not a natural human ability. I of my own ability can only do human things, if I do anything that is not common to man, that power, that ability then comes to me or anyone else via either God or Satan. If you or I have the ability to do real magic we do not get or obtain that ability all on our own. So the next time you see a Diviner like a palm reader or you see a magician perform an impossible act, if it is not and illusion, that person gets their inhuman abilities from one of two different places but only from one or the other, the two never ever mix.

(Philosophy Poem) Are Any Among Us Wise

Are Any Among Us Wise


God’s punishment has not yet come upon those who choose to sin

For it is wicked to practice a bitter hatred of those who are strangers

Only the wicked would refuse to feed the hungry who are at their door

Yet some choose only to ensnare the weak and those who are in need

The wicked have earned the hostility the Lord will lay upon their head


Just as the house of Lot, the wicked see not their self-made plight

The wicked do not understand the inner strength of a righteous man

The greedy seek not the bosom of safety for they chase others charms

Can the wise or the foolish understand the depths of the Earth or the seas

Wise man, tell us how the Lord has hung all the planets upon nothing


Man’s fascination with wickedness perverts the innocent ones body and mind

When we choose to live among wickedness it perverts even the heart and Soul

There’s some who have pleased God whom He has loved He has called up early

Some branches the Lord breaks off early in order to save them from the fires

Blessed are the undefiled barren for God for He will give to them many children


What does it profit a man to have 100 children if they grow only to bring shame

Would it not be better to be barren than to be shamed by children who live foolishly

The rich and the poor, the wise and the foolish, we will all be returned to the sand

Is not the rebuke by a wise man better than to be laughed at or even honored by a fool

The ignorant gives counsel without knowledge yet the foolish accepts their wisdom

Wisdom is like fine gold, a gift from God to be shared with those hungry to understand


(Philosophy Poem) Sure Step

Sure Step

My next step

Lord where shall it be

I pray for guidance

With every breath, and every step

I know not life’s path

That is set in front of my feet

Lord please be my light

So that my eyes can see my feet

I wish not to wander blindly

With my feet upon soft ground

For in my life I have walked in darkness

With my toes sinking into uncertain ground

Lord, please guide my conscience

Please keep my body and mind sound

Keep me away from life’s deadly holes

Please embed your light into my soul

Lord, I wish not to stumble

Nor fall into Satan’s grasp

Lord please always guide my feet

So I can tell Satan to kiss my ass

If You Believe In A Creator Then You Believe In Aliens

If You Believe In A Creator Then You Believe In Aliens

(Or You Believe That God Is Ignorant)

This title probably ticked off a few people and also have a few folks scratching their head. If so, then I accomplished my goal with it. I know that throughout the years I have heard and read where some people believe that within the Scriptures (Christian and Jewish) that there are scenes painted where they believe that Space Ships were being spoken of. Do I believe this is possible, yes I do believe that it is a possibility. Have I ever seen a spaceship or an Alien, no, not that I am aware of would be that answer. I know that there were a few times when I was  driving in our western states that I witnessed different size’s of lights in the night skies that did movements that I don’t know how they did it if they were man-made. But did I have any close encounters or abductions, no is the answer to that question. Do I believe that Aliens are real, yes, I have no doubt of that. I do know of a couple of people whom I know and love that say they absolutely did see one (spaceship, not beings) up close about 35 years ago, and I do not doubt their word.


Now I want to speak more about why I spoke about the issues of Other Beings in the prior paragraph. As a devout Christian who does believe in the Earth being a creation by  “God”  in seven of His Days, not ours, that He is far greater than the items He put here on His Creation. Had to put that last quip in because of how egotistical so many humans are, especially in the realm of some wealthy people, politicians, and unfortunately, some so-called Religious people. There is a question that I would like to ask all people, when you look up into a cloud free night sky, what do you see? When we do this we are looking at many planets, Astrologists/Astronomers with their wonderful telescopes and cameras give us all these beautiful pictures of other worlds to gaze upon. Simple question for you, if you are a believer in the Christian/Jewish Scriptures what do you believe? Now think about your answer for a moment before it flies off your tongue okay? If you believe that God created Earth and put different people and things upon this planet, do you really believe that God created who knows how many billions of other planets for absolutely no reason or purpose?


There is also the concept and reality that God Himself is an Alien. Don’t get mad now, think about reality first, is a Supreme Being an Alien when being compared to us humans? If you know your Scriptures you know that there are a few times within it that speaks very plainly of Beings that are Spiritual Beings where the humans could not see them even though they were right in front of them. They were only seen when They chose to be seen by the fleshly eyes of the humans. You know how our Scientist keep speaking about these other planets in terms of them being able to sustain life upon it? Do they ever realize that there could be life forms that are totally different from our own, Beings that do not need water to exist? In the Book of Genesis it is written that God created Man in His own image, in reading the passages it does seem that we were sort of novelty in that God “tried this out” on this planet. Are there other human type creations on any other planets, I don’t know, maybe, maybe not. I do believe that without any doubt that you, I, and everyone else will see Jesus face to face, maybe you can ask Him then about such things if you wish. Well, I hope that I got at least a few folks to ponder these questions and ideas, I wish you and your loved ones God’s blessings always–Shalom.

I know that the above title is not an all-inclusive list of names that people have for their name for God. I wouldn’t be surprised if there are at least another several thousand names that people have for a Deity. The Old Testament mentions the names of many gods relating to the different people and cultures. Ancient Egypt had many gods as did the Greeks, Romans, and the Canaanites just to mention a few of the cultures that the Old Testament mentions. One particular Deity in the land of Canaan that Scripture highly frowned upon was called Baal which is also known by the name Beelzebub which is also known as Satan. I know that I am not the smartest person in the world, but why in the world would anyone back then, or now, worship Him. I know that people today still worship Satan and that they do it knowing who He is. Many other people worship Demons unknowingly, whether it be within witchcraft within the likes of Wicca or even within so-called mainstream religions.

The reason I have chosen this subject matter today is because of an answer I got from a post I made from my Yahoo home page earlier this week. Within my comment I mentioned “their god”, and a reader replied that “their god” was the same God as the Christian and Jewish God, that these people I was referring to simply called God by a different name. This person’s response reminded me of the fact that I believed this same thing for many years but through many years of study I have learned that this is not the truth.

Within the Old Testament we learn that God the Father’s name is Jehovah (in Hebrew Yahweh) and that His only Son’s name was (Hebrew: Yeshiva or Yeshua) whose New Testament name is Jesus the Christ, the Messiah. Remember back to the beginning of the Old Testament where the wording says “let Us make man in Our image”. If you haven’t read through the first couple of chapters of the first book of the Bible (Genesis) for a while please do so when you have a little time. You will find several times where “Us and Our” image is made plain.

The Jewish people are still waiting for the Messiah, the Promised One, to appear for the first time and to set up His Earthly Kingdom in the Holy Land. We Christian people tell our Jewish Brothers that the Promised One was the man named Jesus. We Christians, in fact, all of the people of the earth are very fortunate that the Royal Bloodline, the Hebrews, by their actions fulfilled the Scriptures concerning the Messiah. The simple reason that we Gentiles have hope after this life is finished is because of them not realizing that they were killing the Messiah. If it were not for the death and resurrection of God’s Son none of us would have any hope of salvation except of the Royal Bloodline, the Jews.

There is one thing that should be noted though is that the Christians and the Jews are worshiping the Father Jehovah but that the Christians also worship Jehovah’s Son Jesus (Yeshiva). But now lies a big problem according to Scripture, we are all told that humans if we are not worshiping the Trinity (God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit) then we humans are worshiping nothing at all like a stone or a tree or worse yet they are unknowingly worshiping Demons. You see, it wasn’t but a few years ago that I thought that Allah was just another cultures name for God the Father and that they like our Jewish brothers were mistaken concerning Jesus, but I have learned that I was wrong. I have recently learned from some of my Jewish friends that in the Arabic language a very old name for God the Father is/was Allah. What I am about to say is not wished nor intended to make anyone angry, I am not trying to slander not to hurt anyone’s feelings yet I know that some will be irate anyway. I believe that the people who are believers of and followers of the different sects of Islam have been deceived by Satan and the purity of their faith was sidetracked. I believe that they have had the full intent to be worshipers of God the Father and I greatly admire their devotion they give but I believe that it is not God that they are worshiping.

The true, one and only God, is love. God is not hate, by God’s law all people should be kind and caring to everyone, even strangers. If a person believes that they are worshiping God but their God says that His followers are to be aggressive, hateful, or violent toward anyone, then my friend, these people are worshiping the Devil, and He is no God. I apologize for the length of this post but I was trying to explain things to make it easy to understand. Hopefully I have made it to where it is easy to read between the lines and see the truth that I am trying to bring to light.

Theology of Race and Hate



God doesn’t care what color a person’s skin is, just who the heck do we think we are, do we think we are smarter than God? Racism is stupid and evil, so is hate, so is violence. Humans are so ignorant and so evil, it is sad. Truth will not be tolerated in our country because the tail is waging the dog. The 1% who control the media and the politics in our country are simply evil and they are doing everything they can to promote their views upon the rest of the world. This morning on GMA there was an advertisement of a very young girl, a singer, who is going to be on their program soon. I guess she is popular and she is very pretty but what my wife and I noticed was in the advertisement she was trying to be as sexy as she possibly could be through all of her actions and movements, if you didn’t know she was a singer you might well think she was getting ready to do a strip show. Our society is in sad shape. If we don’t very soon start viewing the world through Jesus’s eyes and not through the eyes of our races this country is going to implode. The problem is we are to stupid as a Nation to change the evil path we are on. It is sad to me because I love this country, I love the land and I love all the people because I just don’t care what your skin color is and I pity those who do put color first in their lives. For people whose hearts are ruled by hate the Devil is waiting on you to come join him in his retirement pad. If your heart is filled with hate you are already walking with him now hand in hand to your eternal home. I only feel sorrow for you, not hatred. I just ask all people to please, consider our ways before it is too late for our Country and for our own Soul.


(Theology Poem) The Second Death



Tell me, can a man die a second time for the same crimes

Can a hanged man be brought back just to be hanged again

When the heart stops can you be revived, just to die again

When lightning strikes can electricity bring the heart back

These things are certainly true, yet they’re not of what I mean


Once we die and our brain has stopped, the first death has come

All who have ever lived, will be raised from the dead, one time

The time is coming when they all shall hear Christ’s voice, and arise

Those who did good in their life shall rise to God’s eternal love

For those who were evil they shall face the resurrection of damnation


The Father raised His Son Jesus Christ, who only had only once to die

In like manner shall all the followers of Christ be raised to eternal life

Those who knew not the Father nor the Son shall rise unto the flames

They who believed not the love of the Truth, they shall die once again

The Second Death is separation from God, into Hell’s eternal flames




(Christian Poem) Living In The Spirit Of Christ



The human brain can be separated from the host body

Yet the Spirit of God cannot be separated from the brain

Can the Soul of a human be taken from the grasp of God

The Spirit of God and the Soul of a man are not the same

If the Spirit of God indwells even Satan cannot separate you


Everyday man kills the body of many sheep belonging to Jesus

Christians love and meekness are counted as weakness to many

Yet Satan nor man can separate God’s love from His believers

Christ now sits at the right hand of the Father interceding for us

Satan can lay nothing at the charge of the Holy Spirit led believer


If the Spirit of Christ be within us, the Principalities hold their peace

Know ye not that all things work for the betterment of true Believers

God’s Spirit knows the hearts, minds and Souls of all who love Him

For those who love Him, His Spirit intercedes in our lives and prayers

Living in His Spirit, Christ gives us the glory of God’s love everlasting



Wake up: Creationism AND Evolution-ism Are Both Partly Correct


I am a devout life long Christian yet I have for most of my adult life debated how Christians (for the most part) are so oblivious to reality and to the Truths that are shown us in the Bible. So many people who believe in the Bible as the Holy Spirit Inspired Word Of God (as I also do) tend to read the Bible with ‘Church Doctrine’ blinders on. Back in the time of the Apostles and the time that Jesus walked the Earth when they taught in the Synagogues the people studied the Scriptures to see if what they were being taught was the truth or not. Just because your Preacher or a Church Elder, Bishop, or if you are Catholic, even the Pope, tells you something it is your Christian obligation to search out the Scriptures to see if what you are being told is Biblical.


Reality is that the ignorance of Christians/Churches have convinced millions if not billions of people throughout history to turn their backs on the Jewish and the Christian faith. Right from the very first book of the Bible (Genesis) Christians and Jews do not understand what we are so plainly being told. Yes the world and all in it were created in six days, but those six days are not, were not, human days, they were God’s days. I nor any other human knows what one of God’s days represent compared to a human day but Scripture tells us over and over again that God’s days are not our days yet humans keep trying to make that be so anyway. Even in our own solar system every single planet that circles the sun has a different amount of our hours in one of their days. Some will, through their ego’s say, well why didn’t Moses just lay it all our for us so we could know exactly everything? Folks, almost all of the humans that were alive about 3,600-3,700 human years ago calculated time through their own ancestors which normally only traversed back 3, 4, or 5 generations at best. Do you honestly think if Moses had started teaching them of thinks that happened 3 or 4 billion years ago that these people would have listened to him? What if Moses had started laying out the lineage of Dinosaurs, what do you think they would have done? My guess is that the people would have shunned him for being a crazy man.


Most all of us know some about the story of Adam and Eve from the first two chapters of Genesis but my question to everyone is, just how well have you read it? Have you just taken the word of the Church you attend as to what the Scripture actually is telling us all? Please reread the first two chapters. If you will notice in the first chapter Adam was created but before His creation God created ‘men and women, and, God created He them’. After God had created multiple ‘men and women’ God created Adam. Now in the first chapter, after God did all of His creating of those ‘Six Days’, God rested from His work on the 7th day. Then after all His work was done and He had created the first group of people (the Gentiles) and Adam, then in chapter #2 God then created Eve to be a help mate for Adam. Folks, the ‘promised one, the Messiah, Jesus The Christ’ lineage is traced back through the ‘Royal Blood Line’ to Adam. There were two human creations, the gentiles, and the Royal Blood Line of Adam. Adam and Eve were about 5,500 human years ago yet humans were on this planet many thousands of years before this time. Jesus Himself referred to us Gentiles as “people before this time whom were not a people”. Jesus was pointing out that before His time here on Earth, before His Resurrection that salvation was only to the Jews and to no one else. So, people who were not a people, Gentiles! These are simple truths laid out in writing for us all to see yet we choose to remain blind. Think about a few things we are told here in the beginning of Genesis. After Cain had murdered his brother Able God banished Cain to the East of Eden in the land of Nod. God put a mark on the forehead of Cain so that “all who find him would not kill him”, folks, all of who? There were only 3 people left on the planet right, just Cain, his Mom Eve and his Dad Adam, so all of whom? Then after Cain had been banished he took a wife, wait a minute, where did she come from? Moses wrote the first five books of the Bible/Torah through the guidance of God’s Spirit, whom we tend to call the Holy Spirit from the New Testament. The Truth of the Scriptures are right before our eyes, but we have been trained not to see the real Truth. We have been taught Church doctrines instead which has run many millions away from God’s teachings.


If Moses had told the people of his time that the world was about 4-5 billion years old and that the planet we call Earth had started with a big interstellar bang what do you think the people would have done to him? At the very least they would have thought him to be crazy and no one would have paid him any mind. To my Christian and Jewish brothers, yes there were such things as dinosaurs and there has been life on this planet for several hundred millions of human years. I did not say that there has been human life here on Earth for hundreds of millions of our years, just life itself. God does not want us to be ignorant for ignorance begets death, physical and spiritual. Science has pretty much discovered/proven that human life has been on this planet for hundreds of thousands of years, not just the  5,000-5,500 years since Adam and Eve. I am not an archaeologist even though I am a huge fan of history. I know that science has been looking for the so-called ‘missing link’ between Primates and Humans for longer than I have been alive. This is like trying to find that pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, it doesn’t exist folks.


Evolution, is there such a thing? Of course there is folks. As an example I would like to use the people science calls Neanderthals. For most of my life time scientist have wondered what happened to them, why did they go extinct? Just like the people before them who bred with them the same thing happened to them, they were bred out of existence. You can breed cattle with buffalo and you get what is called beefalo. You can take oranges and breed them with tangerines and you get a product called tangelos. In Scripture the ‘House of Israel’ was forbidden to mix blood with any of the Gentiles, if they did then they were counted as not being pure. Humans did not crawl up out of the oceans and even though we have many of the same molecules of other creatures we did not derive from them and they did not derive from us. Today science can create a form of a human being through cloning and some would call this evolution, that we have evolved into a more pure condition but they are ignorant of reality. Science can play God, but they are not God. Just as if I could make an android and give it a human name like George, George is still not a human. The difference in these two creations of science and a real human being is that science can not create ‘a Soul’. It is the Soul that makes the conscientiousness that makes one human and only God can create the Soul. Is there such a thing as evolution, of course there is, just not to the extent that some scientist believe and or are trying to find or create.


Science has some things wrong, yet they do have many things correct. Churches have many things correct, yet they have many things wrong. It is the job of the Churches to teach the whole Truth but first the Churches must open their eyes to what the Scriptures actually say and to forget about ‘Church doctrines’. The Earth is a special place for it is designated to be “God’s Footstool”. Earth is where Jesus will reign from once the New Jerusalem comes down from Heaven to replace the current city of Jerusalem once it has been totally destroyed after the Second Advent. Now, Christians, wake up to reality about other planets. Do you honestly think that if God is the Creator of all things in the Heavens and on the Earth that He created billions of planets for no purpose or reason at all? To the best of my knowledge I have never seen an alien yet I totally believe that they exist, it would be difficult to honestly believe other wise. Then again there is the issue of, what does an alien actually look like? Personally I have no idea, but I do doubt that they look like humans. Personally I believe in the existence of Angels, I also believe that I have seen and spoken with at least two in my lifetime. I also believe in the existence of Satan and of His Angels, to me, to not believe in both is Biblical ignorance. I personally do not know if I have ever spoken directly with any Demons but I think that there is a very good chance that I have several times. I know that I have experienced being in places and in the presence of a few people where the feeling of pure evil was like a stench in the air, you could feel it, you could almost taste it. Remember, if you spend your life trying to be good and trying your best to be the best follower of Christ that you know how to be, you make yourself a target for the hate of evil ones, humans and otherwise.
