COMMENT ON STEPHEN HAWKING'S STATEMENT NOVEMBER 2014 that
""there is no afterlife and there is no God""
Congratulations for your comments
in the "Friday Afterlife Report" on Stephen Hawking's
statements on SBS. I find him for a man of science extremely
superficial, jumping to conclusions without any basis. There
are so many holes in his presentation, it's not funny. I have
studied Astronomy myself, and know what I am talking about.
1. The "Big Bang Theory" shows
more and more holes and logical inconsistencies, so that
now many astronomers seriously question its validity. Hawking
just takes it as fact.
2. The incompatibility of the Theory of
Relativity and Quantum Theory does not merit so much as
a mention from him. Every Physicist knows about that!
3. His example pf how the "Big Bang"
started is woefully inadequate (showing a man digging a
hole and piling up a mountain. That man certainly expended
a lot of energy doing this, but the "Big Bang"
didn't need anything like that - it just happened according
4. From this inadequate example he concludes
that the "Big Bang" did not need the intervention
of God to happen. And from this he concludes that "There
is no God". Such a fallacy would give him a "Fail"
at University in the subject of "Formal Logic".
5. From "There is no God" he effortlessly
comes to "There probably is no afterlife" - again
devoid of any logical reasoning.
6. Of course the Paranormal does not even
get mentioned by him.
All in all I am very disappointed by his
presentation. He has done himself a big disservice.
Best Regards: Waldis.
