Good evening everyone! I hope everyone is doing well this evening! I was reading the news online today and I came across this article. Now I know I haven’t been doing a lot of original writing lately, but I really want to know what you all think about this.
Science vs Faith.. I really dislike when scientists try and take away, or even change our (Christians) faith. Scientists for years have tried to prove that there Heaven doesn’t exist, that Jesus didn’t rise from the grave etc.. Faith is Faith.. We believe in it. For some Christians, I can understand wanting to have proof, but where is your faith when you do that? For me, I believe in the Bible, and what IT says. I don’t need proof. Science can try and proof this or that, but you will Never take my faith away.
Below is the article I am mentioning that I found on MSNBC.

Stephen Hawking, the famous British physicist, called the notion of heaven a “fairy story” in an interview with The Guardian newspaper published today.
The physicist, 69, who was diagnosed with A.L.S. at age 21, made the heaven comment in response to a question about his fears of death.
“I have lived with the prospect of an early death for the last 49 years. I’m not afraid of death, but I’m in no hurry to die. I have so much I want to do first,” he told the newspaper.
“I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail. There is no heaven of afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people who are afraid of the dark.”
Hawking has far outlived most people who have A.L.S., also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, producing important cosmological research and writing books. His “A Brief History of Time,” published in 1988, has sold more than 9 million copies.
The Guardian interview is the latest the scientist has given to news media in recent weeks. It is published the day before he is scheduled to address the question “Why are we here?” at the Google Zeitgeist meeting in London.
In the talk, according to The Guardian, he will argue that the tiny fluctuations in the very early universe became the seeds from which galaxies, stars, and ultimately human life emerged.
“Science predicts that many different kinds of universe will be spontaneously created out of nothing. It is a matter of chance which we are in,” he said.
Let me know what you think..
Until next time readers, God Bless!
