Kirk Cameron criticizes Stephen Hawking for saying ‘there is no heaven’


Kirk Cameron in 2001. (JIM COOPER - AP)
“Growing Pains” actor turned Christian film star Kirk Cameron is taking issue with comments famed physicist Stephen Hawking made about the existence of heaven. “There is no heaven or afterlife for broken-down computers,”Hawking said of the human brain to the Guardian newspaper Monday. “That is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.”

Cameron, a Christian evangelist who heads the online ministry,Way of the Master, responded on his Facebook page Wednesday, writing that “to say anything negative about Stephen Hawking is like bullying a blind man. He has an unfair disadvantage, and that gives him a free pass on some of his absurd ideas.” Hawking suffers from a motor neurone disease that has left him totally paralyzed.

“Professor Hawking is heralded as ‘the genius of Britain,’ yet he believes in the scientific impossibility that nothing created everything and that life sprang from non-life,” the actor continued.

Cameron, who last appeared on television with the Duggar Family on their TLC show “19 Kids and Counting,” also had harsh words for Beatles singer, John Lennon. “(Hawking) says he knows there is no Heaven. John Lennon wasn't sure. He said to pretend there’s no Heaven. That's easy if you try. Then he said he hoped that someday we would join him. Such wishful thinking reveals John and Stephen's religious beliefs, not good science.”

I think he has a right to his opinion.

I also think it's pretty douchey to suggest that 'saying anything negative about Stephen Hawking is like bullying a blind man and that he has an 'unfair advantage'. He doesn't because he could debate circles around Cameron. This approach on Cameron's part is cowardly and egotistical all at once.

And I used to have a wall of pictures of Kirk. lol..

Meh, I agree with Hawking. Kirk is entitled to believe whatever he wants, but so is Hawking.

And yet I'm sure he expects to be able to spout off whatever nonsense he feels like saying without any criticism. I can't stand Kirk Cameron.

There was recently a HILARIOUS conversation on Ray Comfort's (the banana man) FB page. Someone said something about 'bibliophiles' and Ray thought that was an atheist insult- combining 'bible' and 'pedophile'.

lol...

I wonder how they explain mangoes.  They are a pain the butt with a knife.   Without one in the wild?  Must have been one of God's prototypes before he got it perfect with banana!

Nothing that comes out of the tireless fountain of ignorance that is his mouth even surprises me anymore.
