What’s funny is a lot of very smart people have been saying things similar to this for a long time, but the general public doesn’t give a hoot until Hawking says it. It sort of reminds me of this xkcd (but then everything reminds me of xkcd): http://m.xkcd.org/799/
guy is sort of stupid
Guy is sort of the most intelligent person alive (with the possible exception of Edward Witten).
If there is no computer-heaven, were do all the calculators go?
To be recycled into cameras… I fear this joke may be wasted.
Not in my calculator’s case. It just can’t see the big picture…
He is wrong! There is just as much a heaven for my brain as there is a heaven for my spleen. And another heaven for my lungs. And stomach.
But not my heart – that’s just an organic pump. Who would be stupid enough to think that went anywhere?
But it takes intelligence to build a computer…
On a separate note, for Stephen Hawking’s ‘conventional afterlife is a fairy tale’ followers, I remind them of the First Law of Thermodynamics – Energy Can Not Be Created Nor Destroyed, Merely Transformed. And submit that life or a ’soul’ is essentially energy and must conform to the Laws of Energy, at least on a scientific basis. Circumstantial and coincidental evidence of energy ‘surviving’, transferring, making itself known to some, seems to support the scientific evidence.
