Stephen Hawking, the famed physicist and author asserted last week that there is no afterlife and the so-called ‘heaven is a fairytale’. Bang!!!, a declaration of war could result depending on who gets offended by his assertion.
But Is he correct or incorrect?
For the religious Muslims or Christians, it can be deeply offending as it shakes their very core belief system. When the core belief systems are shaken people can get very emotional and upset. On the other hand, for a non-believing atheist, Hawking’s comment could revalidate atheism as the ‘right way’. After all a famous author is saying that ‘heaven is fairy tale’, it can be a matter of great laugh for the atheist, finally a dose of approval for atheism from a great mind.
Using Hawing’s comment to validate one’s religious or atheist belief systems is utter non-sense. Who wins in this debate matters not, because either winner speaks from a starting point of an accepted and allowed nonsensical belief system.
As a destonian, it matters not to me if the so-called heaven is a fairy tale or not, what matters to me is the condition on this earth. Is heaven on earth a real tale or not, matters to me absolutely. For me, a practical livable heaven on earth is not a fairy tale, where everyone has access to equal quality of life facilitated by the equal money system, equal labor system, equal housing system, and equal education system etc.
Focus on what matters practically. Earth matters, humans matter, animals matter, nature matters, taking self responsibility to bring about a practical heaven on earth matters absolutely.
For the record, yes, heaven up there in the clouds, is an escape fairly tale for those who abdicate self-responsibility to care about what is HERE. Equally, Stephen Hawing too went on his own escape to abdicate self-responsibility for what is HERE.
Will Stephen Hawking be a vote for Equal Money System?
I urge you Dr. Stephen Hawking, investigate, study what Equal Money System is all about, don’t’ let your life be just a fairy tale.
Briefly I suppose time will tell as it does for all inevitably.
