Stephen Hawking has finally made it official. Not that many people really doubted it, but there was a good number of Christian apologists who felt that his vagueness was possibly evidence that he was some sort of deist at the very least.
Well the rumors and speculation can be put to rest. Stephen Hawking is an atheist:
“Before we understand science, it is natural to believe that God created the universe. But now science offers a more convincing explanation. 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.”
Now those apologists can go back to trying to convince the world that Albert Einstein believed in God, or that Charles Darwin had a deathbed conversion.
I wonder why they want to steal all the atheists so bad, are Pat Robertson and Mark Driscoll not good enough poster boys for religion?
