Kirk Cameron on Stephen Hawking: ‘He Ain’t So Smart’

May 18th, 2011 // 249 Comments

“I can make that face, too, tough guy.”

Kirk Cameron is a high school graduate who starred on a sitcom where his best friend’s name is Boner and then fell headfirst into evangelical Christianity where he makes money telling people the banana is all the proof we need that God exists. Stephen Hawking is a world-renowned physicist and one of the greatest minds of our generation who recently told The Guardian that heaven is a “fairy story for people afraid of the dark.” Guess who’s calling who an idiot. TMZ reports:

Cameron tells us, “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.”
He adds, “Why should anyone believe Mr. Hawking’s writings if he cannot provide evidence for his unscientific belief that out of nothing, everything came?”
… “[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.”

Granted, Stephen Hawking has about as much proof there isn’t a “heaven” as Kirk Cameron has that there is, Stephen Hawking does have evidence that the Bible is a heavily-edited manuscript which allows him to rule out the possibility of a Christian heaven populated by an old guy with a white beard and hippie son. Whereas Kirk Cameron believes fossils are a trick of the devil because the earth’s only 6,000 years old, and the people who wrote the Bible simply forgot to mention the massive thunder lizards they kept as pets.

PAUL: Hey, should I write a chapter about Chompy here?
PETER: Who wants to read about a giant lizard that eats men? Stick to the good stuff.

    Since Kirk knows more about science than Hawking, maybe he should quit wasting everybody’s time and give us the Unified Field Theory. With God’s help, it should be a cinch !

    “his unscientific belief that out of nothing, everything came?”
    Isn’t that where God comes from?
    (Science) Nothing -> Everything
    (GOD) Nothing -> GOD -> Everything.
    Science is simpler

    Of course there’s a heaven. It’s where wheelchairs roam free, finally unburdened of incontinent gimps.

    I just loathe these holier than tho people. They are always the ones thinking they are above everyone. They are usually the ones caught with their pants down (literally) on the receiving end of some S&M freaky deaky shit. 3, 2, 1 … pics of his wife giving it to him with a strap on.

      “I just loathe these holier than tho people. They are always the ones thinking they are above everyone.”

      Oh wait, you mean like yourself and most of the “intelligent” folks that post here?

  5. Religion is a crutch for the feeble minded. Of course the only religions been bashed here are monotheic. There are other religions that don’t preach an afterlife, ancestor worship and such. Dawkins refutes God too, I love it because it quite clearly shows the better educated and more intelligient you are the less you need fairy tales. Even Freud said the same, ‘our father’ is just like having your daddy looking after you.

    Religion IS a fairy tale for little children afraid of the dark and an easy way of controlling the masses. But it can’t be ‘proved’ one way or the other. Another point to quickly consider is the fact that your religion is an accident of birth. If you were born in a muslim country you’d be islamic, born to Jews you’d be Jewish and so forth. Anyway now I’m going to go fap to some bikin pictures, woohoo!

    • Dooh

      Richard Dawkins gives science and atheists a bad name. He’s as bias as they come. Science should not be bias.

      • TomFrank

        Yeah, you’re so smart, you don’t know the difference between “bias” (noun) and “biased” (adjective).

      • Yes Richard Dawkins is bias(ed)…what does that have to do with anything? Not every idea is supportable by rational thought or scientific facts…bias SHOULD fall to those that are.

        Basically, you don’t like Dawkins because he doesn’t coddle the religious with weasle words, apologies, and other feel good nonsense. He and others like him (Victor Stanger, Sam Harris, Christopher Hitchens, etc) call a spade a spade…and if your feelings are hurt, well you chose to believe this bullshit so suck it up.

    I was brought up as a Christian, but I didn’t buy it. I know it is all bull-shit, made up by man in an earlier, simpler time, for various reasons. If you really believe in a god, your not really thinkin’.

  12. alex

    IMHO, I think its unreasonable to dismiss the possibility that there is a heaven and a god in heaven.

    Before time, before “anything” was there something? if our entire universe originated from a spec of mater that exploded and in an instant created everything including space, time, energy, etc., for me, that says there’s a good chance there’s a higher being that exists on a different plane of reality.

    • So if there’s a God in heaven who created the whole universe – mostly because you can’t conceive of the scientific theory involved without attributing it to some Big Daddy – is that heaven filled with everyone from other planets, or just restricted to everyone who’s ever been supergood on earth? Since we’re talking “unreasonable” here, is it really reasonable to believe that in the whole of the massive universe, with all those planets, that this higher being chose Earth alone as the only planet to have life on it?

      BTW, is Plato in heaven? He was born before Christ gave the world the instruction manual, so is everyone prior to 33CE just shit out of luck regarding Paradise?

    Wow, this Kirk Cameron guy sounds likes an idiot and a douche. Still, better than being a fucking brain dead retard like Hawkings. Of all the people ever to grace this fine site, Hawkings has to be the stupidest, most retarded smart guy ever. Sorry, but Hawkings is and always has been a huge attention whore. And he makes these stupid statements with no basis in science. Why does anyone listen to what he says. Its like saying, “ohhhh, so Shrek came out today and said god is an ogre…a green one, which is strange, because ogres are not green. But if Shrek said it, it must be true.

    Guess we’ll all know for sure at 6pm on Saturday!

  20. I don’t know why Kirk Cameron or Stephen Hawking even bother weighing in on the existance of God when clearly every moron with a keyboard is confidently posting all the answers to the mysterys of the universe here.

  21. The Listener

    Think about this: Our entire universe is 3 dimensional. It consists of length, width, and height. If God exists, he would be a 4th dimensional being (a spirit being), or for those who believe that space-time is the 4th dimension, God would then be a 5th dimension being. Then, does it seem logical that we can use 3 dimensional technology to measure a being in a 4th or 5th dimension?
    That would be like the cartoon character of the Professor from Futurama (a 2 dimensional character) trying to use his technology to determine whether we humans in this world exist. The Professor could guess that we exist but his 2 dimensional universe would make it impossible to measure our 3 dimensional lives. It’s the same with trying to use our technology to prove that God exists outside of our universe.

  22. I just did some follow up reading and found an article describing how the dinosaurs on Noah’s Ark were probably baby dinosaurs and that’s how they all fit on the boat. Coincidentally, I now have a raging migraine. According to further reading, it’s because Satan is trying to get into my brain through learnin’.

    Um, Hawking does not believe life came from non life. No atheist/evolutionist does. Kirk runs his mouth before checking his facts.

    ““the word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses” unless you think he was calling himself weak there, its clear he does not believe in a god from that statement. you can keep denying it if you want, but you do so at personal expense. although, i suppose humiliating yourself in this life is worth it for eternal salvation. say hi to jesus for me when you get to heaven, okay? lol

    All religion is Bullshit created by evil people to make the weaker people scared into following their commands.
    If there is a God, I want it to be Thor and his kind. They knew have to live.

    • Johnny Cage

      No no no, that’s why COMMUNISM was created, not religion. It was a political style created by evil people such as Lenin and Marx to suppress the already weak into following their commands. Only the people under it’s rule were tricked into it’s undertaking. Still this couldn’t have happened without atheism in place.

      If I could be any of the socialist ideologies, I would Fascism. Those guys knew how to fight! Communism is too “tofu hippie” to me. And besides who the hell wants 1 worker and 100 bosses in a work place.

  27. A MF'ing M.sc

    >(robot voice) Science and superstition (as in religion) are mutually exclusive, and if you can’t urdestand that simple fact, then nothing else needs to be said. Since you brought the topic of “debating science vs. religion”, it is quite surprising that you end your angry diatribe saying such a blatant stupidity. Also, no matter how “logic” your arguments (or Dr. Lame’s in that matter)might sound to you, you should remember that our common sense is notoriously erroneous. When discussing the origin of the Universe, you should (as we physicstsdo), rely solely on observable evidence and mathematics. If you (or Dr. Lame) can’t bring that to a debate, you should better shut up. *bleeep*

    It must be hard for you to accept that religion (read: religion as in the cultural hierarchy & belief system, not faith, superstition or belief) and science do overlap in a lot of concepts and share similarities, core to more developed, depending on the religion, defunct or present. Human nature, the universe, morality and any other given hotly debated subject. That overlapping doesn’t validate insert given religion or philosophical movement however to pretend it doesn’t exist is juvenile. I understand that as a vehement supporter of whatever you call yourself, you really want to distance yourself from a concept you abhor or find silly but you’re not doing a grand job of it. Call my comments an “angry diatribe” to make yourself look better if you have too…oh you did.

    We’re not talking about the origin of the universe, how the galaxies appear to recede faster than light, random energy fluctuations in the empty void that might have birthed daddy time and mama space or the hadrons you get from talking physics. We get it, you like science. You live science, hell, you would tap that *ss. We’re just talking about how instead of being a scientist and teaching those who you perceive to be ignorant, how to think, you want to force them to accept your view as true and false. Or how instead of seeking the truth and showing that truth to others, you’re just being an anti-religious troll/asshole who is pretending to be a asshole physicist that gets pissed when he looses a bet about black holes. Or how still you somehow think that when you say “God isn’t real” you can appeal to authority by saying “Science disproves that shit yo!” and not actually say anything.

    >Science and scientists do not claim to posses the whole and only truth (as opposed to religions and politicians), that is why it works, because it includes a self-correcting mechanism. Scheintific knowledge is not perfect, but is the most reasonable apporach to the truth humanity may have. You say experience is the best way of gaining knowledge, but you fail to consider that anecdotes (the relation of your personal experiences) actually have NO VALUE as far as science is concerned.

    I certainly never claimed to but however seeking the truth is the job of a scientist, and that truth may not always been objective, or epistemological. It may only be inferred, and unable to be proved. Many politicians have evolving views, many religions are based on the concepts of metaphysical evolutions and embrace a less stagnant view on life. You’re really digging for these insults aren’t you? Did religion rape you as a small child? Anyway, experience is observation and knowledge, which can be anecdotal, but that does not make it inferior to strict scientific acquisition of knowledge. All the books you read to get the degree you probably don’t have, experience, and experience you’re just assuming is correct. And we know how different textbooks sometimes have widely different ways to present the same information even though it’s distiled scientific knowledge. It’s still faster, easier and most natural, and right enough of the time that the less than factual information absorbed doesn’t outweighs the good.

    >By the way, there is no God.

    Cool, don’t care. But you sure do. You have some deep God issues, see someone about that.

    Can someone explain to me why we imprison murderers, thieves, rapists, etc? If there is no God then there is no set of moral laws that mankind should have to follow! Which makes the imprisonment of those people purely evil. They should be free like the rest of us. Our belief as a society that murder is wrong should not be imposed on murderers, if we truly want freedom. Science can’t prove that murder is morally wrong, therefore those who look to Science for all of their answers should know that any harsh treatment or ridicule given to murderers is unjust. I know I’m seen as ignorant or stupid for believing in a God I have never seen. But, Jesus said blessed are they that have not seen yet believe. I’m just here to tell the good news that he loves you and desires not for you to perish but that you may come to him and have everlasting life.

    Romans1:18 -23 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man – and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.

    • This is gonna be futile because your “logic” is already painful to behold, but what the hell.

      Big news: science doesn’t attempt to “prove” anything having to do with morality, justice and laws. Do you not get that science, which is a search for knowledge, and laws that govern society are two different things – and personal or religious morality often has very little to do with law? Our laws in particular are based on the idea that each one of us has natural rights, and one person’s interfering with another’s is punishable based on that concept alone. They have nothing to do with scripture – especially Romans – and if you want to live in a society where God makes the rules and fear of Him is the motivator, check out a theocracy like Saudi Arabia. Bet you’ll love it.

      So your big theory is that unless there’s the threat of a God who’ll punish us in the afterlife (or with a lightning bolt in this one) we’ll all create Sodom 2 and run amok, and a secular or atheistic society will always, by definition, be lawless? So why aren’t the murderers, thieves and rapists in prison all atheists to a man? You probably don’t realize you’re essentially arguing that that the only reason God exists is that we created Him to justify societal order and lock up the criminals. I suggest you look up consequentialist morality sometime.

    • Peace Offering

      “Our laws in particular are based on the idea that each one of us has natural rights, and one person’s interfering with another’s is punishable based on that concept alone”

      If our laws are based on an idea and not fact, then don’t we have a problem? Where do we get the idea that we have any natural rights? Has nature encoded it in our DNA to make it the general consesus of humankind to feel that murder is wrong and should be punishable? Furthermore, if this idea somehow fails me and I do commit murder, what then? Should I feel remorseful for what I’ve done? Or should I just kill myself and spare society the costs of imprisoning me or putting me to death? If Science isn’t designed to tackle these questions I don’t see why atheists, secularists or any other ists stand behind knowledge and supposed truth as if it’s God?

      “and if you want to live in a society where God makes the rules and fear of Him is the motivator, check out a theocracy like Saudi Arabia. Bet you’ll love it.”

      First off, I don’t want to live in a theocracy, thank God for the protestant reformation. Jesus Christ did not tell his disciples to go conquer all the nations and start one governed by the Church. He said go into all the world and preach the Gospel. I understand atheists, secularists, etc. problem with religion as it lends itself to the possibility of theocracies setting up shop. You must also understand a theists view on a communist government or an atheistocracy. For as much injustice has been done in the name of God, I’d have to say it pales in comparison to those whose minds have been hell bent against God.

      For example, Friedrich Neitsche and his protege Adolph Hitler. What words of wisdom could a young lad like Hitler have gained from such a man like Neitsche? Let’s see. In Neitsche’s “The Genealogy of Morals”..

      “The sick are the great danger of man, not the evil, not the ‘beasts of prey.’ They who are from the outset botched, oppressed, broken those are they, the weakest are they, who most undermine the life beneath the feet of man, who instill the most dangerous venom and skepticism into our trust in life, in man, in ourselves…Here teem the worms of revenge and vindictiveness; here the air reeks of things secret and unmentionable; here is ever spun the net of the most malignant conspiracy – the conspiracy of the sufferers against the sound and the victorious; here is the sight of the victorious hated.”

      Funny, cause I don’t see any words from Jesus plotting to bring revenge to the supposed victorious.. In fact Christ teaches to bless those who curse you!
      Jesus Christ “Blessed are the poor in spirit, Blessed are the meek, Blessed are the peacemakers, Blessed are those who mourn, Blessed are those who Hunger and thirst for righteousness, Blessed are the Merciful, Blessed are the Pure in Heart, Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness sake.

      “So your big theory is that unless there’s the threat of a God who’ll punish us in the afterlife (or with a lightning bolt in this one) we’ll all create Sodom 2 and run amok, and a secular or atheistic society will always, by definition, be lawless?”

      It’s not my theory, it’s called the Bible! Secondly, I did not come to Christ out of a fear of his Wrath as some do. I came to Christ because God in my time of need had compassion on me and drew me to Christ in that situation. It doesn’t matter under what circumstances God uses to bring you to Christ, you just praise him for whatever he used to get you there. I do believe we are already in Sodom 2, I’m sure the people who lived in Sodom would have thought they had died and gone to heaven if they could see a fraction of the filth the internet provides these days. Or if they could visit some of the countries where the human trafficking of young women is normal. The Apostle Paul hit it right on the head when he said that we invent ways of doing evil! But what am I talking about, I’m sure given another couple thousand years of finding truth from Science will certainly give man the ability to stop inventing new ways of doing evil with every breakthrough in technology.

      Hmm… Should I rely on man or the Lord? Forgive me if I trust Christ over even the most intgelligent of men we have on earth today. 2000yrs ago The Living God made it clear – repent and trust in his Son or stay dead in your sins and perish! I know it sounds foolish and mythological, but this same God that gave his son 2000yrs ago has transformed my life. Call me dillusional along with the rest of the believers, but knowing that my sins are forgiven truly makes me at peace and not vindictive or hateful like so many I know who have not Christ. So may God bless you with the sight to see Christ in all of his beauty in the Gospel, you and your household.

      • First off, NO ONE BUT YOU is arguing that science has anything to do with laws, so right away your argument is for shit. I hate to tell you, but if you somehow think you can “disprove” science that won’t automatically prove that God exists. You also won’t prove God exists by trying to connect God to law through consequentialism – and FYI, um, you actually undid your own tenuous argument by introducing Neitzsche.

        Secondly, natural rights have nothing to do with God – the philsophers and reformers during The Age of Reason (which was an intellectual poke in the eye to the established Church – and scripture, look it up) posited that because mankind has a brain and therefore a thought process, his intellect granted each man natural rights – such as life, liberty, bodily autonomy, etc. No other man, not even a ruler, had the right to enslave him, kill him or otherwise violate his natural rights. Big Hint: You will NOT find that in the Bible. This happens to be the concept on which we fought the American war of independence, and is the basis for many of our laws – we did not fight because Jesus told us we deserved to be free of taxation without due representation.

        And for all your horror over what “atheists” like Hitler (charge not proven there, btw), Neitzsche have wrought by trying to undo God, let me remind you that Nietzsche was first and foremost amoral, so his concepts are immediately self-serving; if God didn’t exist, traditional morality didn’t either. Which is, in a nutshell, why consequentialist morality – WHICH IS WHAT YOU ARGUED above – is so flawed as a concept and is really for shit when it comes to a basis for any sort of legal system. So what defends us – in law and government – against Nietzsche when he declares your God is dead or otherwise AWOL and he can do as he likes? Not the Bible, I assure you – which may be why when Hitler was shovelling people into ovens I didn’t particularly notice the Church, or any other Christian institutions for that matter, standing as a bulwark against him, did you? However, the concept of secular natural rights will say “no” – because under that concept no man, not even an ubermensch, has a right to declare supremacy over another, nor has any greater rights than any other man just because he thinks he’s intellectually privileged and therefore somehow super-special.

        And yes, the Bible actually has very little to do with our laws, which will prolly be a big shock to you. The Bible and the 10 commandments may have an influence on your personal moral behavior, and that’s fine as far as that goes, but if you attempt to argue it as a basis in a legal court, you’ll be facing a contradictory Biblical argument every step of the way. Ever heard of the Code of Hammurabi? That just happens to be the oldest written legal code in history, much older than the Bible, which does indeed prove that man actually was able to figure out he needed law ‘n’ order well before Moses went up the mountain. It is the oldest form of regulated government and acted as a Consitution, and includes the concept of presumption of innocence, burden of proof, and all the things that Western law today holds dear. The Code was created by the idol-worshipping Babylonians (who just happened to be the guys enslaving the Jews during the time the Pentateuch, which you’re accepting as “fact”, was probably written down), and is actually the basis for most Western law. You notice that today we still don’t pardon murderers and turn the other cheek to thieves and rapists – which, if we we follow your reasoning, we would be bound to.

        And by wanting to trust and rely on God and scripture rather than man for our laws, you ARE calling for a theocracy – you’re just being unbelievably smug about choosing a protestant one rather than one based on Catholic doctrine or Islamic law, but believe me, you’re just as smug about it as any mullah. How nice for you to declare your religion the most enlightened because you prefer it. How proto-Neitzschian, actually. Thomas Jefferson would never stop slapping you.

    Goddamit folks, I am from Europe, and we do not have this shit over here, any discussion(unless you are in the “right” environment) about some sort of “intelligent design” will be met with laughter and shunning, and completely righteously so. And about this shait between Hawking and Cameron, for fucks sake just take a quick look at them and tell me: “Which one looks more like and idiot”?

      Yup, some Americans live in a world that’s an alternate reality.

      Yeah but then again look how Europe is so tolerant of Muslims. Hypocrite much? So when someone says Jesus in Europe you guys look down your nose and go “oh good heavens look how mentally inferior those Yankess are. Good thing my shit smells like bubble gum”. Yet when a Muslim goes Allah u Akbar, you pull down your pants, get down on all fours and assume the standard position.

  32. Burt

    “Cameron tells us, “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.”
    He adds, “Why should anyone believe Mr. Hawking’s writings if he cannot provide evidence for his unscientific belief that out of nothing, everything came?”
    … “[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.””

    He couldn’t argue his way out of a paper bag. The only people he’ll convince with that arguement are people who are to damned stupid or lazy to read up on the Big Bang (which most certainly does not suggest the creation of life out of nothing).

    It would be interesting to see what KC thinks of this Camping idea of the return of Jesus on saturday. I

  34. the only opinion that matters

    God is an adult’s imaginary friend. If you need imaginary friends, god is there for you. If you believe in living a moral life without the necessity of the rewritten and heavily translated tome known as the bible dictating skewed morality, then you can live without an imaginary friend. Religion is for weak people looking for something that doesn’t exist. Hawking vs Cameron…it’s a no brainer. Intelligence and knowledge vs belief system….also a no brainer, but you will never convince religious zealots otherwise.

  35. CJ

    For Dr. Hawking to jump to the conclusion that there is no “God” with no supporting studies out there to accept or reject a null hypothesis is a violation to the scientific method that he so holds so dear. This flawed thinking could only helps to promote the elimination of further study in the scientific community. Just because a cure for cancer has not been found yet, should we jump to the conclusion that there is none and throw our hands up in defeat? His opinion is very subjective versus being objective.

    Shame on you for eliminating the possibility that is based on your own opinion.

    Dr. Hawking point me to one credible study that “God” doesn’t exist… There isn’t one and probably never will be, just as many things (religious or otherwise) that we take on faith will never be proven or disproven.

    • Bucky Barnes

      Until you can prove the existence of something, no one is obligated to attempt to disprove it’s existence. In most cases the existence of things is self evident. For some reason when it comes to religion we’re supposed to simply take your word for it.
      Here’s a tip, the fact that your imaginary deity makes you feel warm and fuzzy and/or scares the shit out of you doesn’t make it real.

    • Talk about flawed thinking…cancer is proven to exist, therefore trying to find a cure for it is in no way a futile endeavor. And Hawking’s opinion isn’t gonna “promote the elimination of further study in the scientific community” any more than it “eliminates the possibility”. Are you serious? Yeesh.

      Look, man has been trying trying philosophically and otherwise to “prove” the existence of God for thousands of years, because faith, in spite of the Bible’s telling the faithful so, is just not enough – a slam-dunk proof with no doubts is what everyone wants. So you already have an incompatability between what belief should be and what man can accept. Faith by definition is something that defies proof – and if your personal faith can’t withstand a scientist’s opinion, seems like it wasn’t a particularly strong faith to begin with.

  40. Abby - A Believer

    Being a Christian means that you believe and have faith that Jesus Christ died on the cross for all our sins. Faith is the key word there. I’ve been a very active member of my church, and I’ve also had times in my life when I didn’t go to church for a year or more. From personal experience I can tell you that there is a true sense of peace when you’re right with God. I’ve read some really hateful and sarcastic things on here and it’s extremely disturbing. Why is it some people are so consumed and concerned with tearing others down and apart? It might make you feel powerful for a moment, but does it not leave an ache in your heart afterward? Ever? Do you not feel guilty for those knives you’ve thrown in the form of words? And if you don’t, then I feel even more sorry for you than I did after I read this article and many of the comments posted. One last thing…religion and science are two different things. They may cross paths, but to be a Christian you don’t have to have a Doctorate in Physics. It’s called Faith for a reason. God bless you all.

      It amuses me that “believers” are so insecure that they feel compelled to defend their beliefs in a comment thread at The Superficial. I’m guessing that SOMEWHERE on the internet there is a more appropriate forum. Here’s a tip, look for a website called The Superstition.

    • Peace Offering

      There is no insecurity shown by defending your beliefs. Infact it takes much courage to stand up for righteousness sake in this world. When you are called arrogant, stupid, hypocritical, and whatever other ugly word comes to mind for standing up for your faith there is no insecurity there. I guess that’s why Jesus said “Blessed are you when men revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake”. May God bless you richly with the Gospel.

        I’ll concede that you DO appear pretty secure in posting your mindless gibberish. I just got off the phone with God though and he says religion is all a load of crap.

    He was an agnostic, he certainly didn’t believe in a personal god. It doesn’t mean that he is correct though. Let me give you an example. Newton was a brilliant scientist, but he also believed in alchemy. Is alchemy true? No.

    When I was in high school I would watch growing pains all the time for the odd chance that that a school scene would appear where MIke Seaver had to wear a speedo for gym class swimming. Never happened. But at age 17 he found
    jay-zus, and now he is an ugly 40-year old with a butt for a brain. He went from being a cute kid with a nice butt to an evil old man who is a butt.
    And believe me, not all Christians are this dumb.

    Commented on this photo:

    Nice one widget, defending an idiot who is sitting there making fun of Hawking’s disability with that face he’s making. You probably thought that was clever…

    • Uh, no.

      He was making fun of Hawking with this face 2 years ago when the photos were taken, even though the “heaven is a fairy story” interview didn’t happen until this year? HE SEES THE FUTURE!!!

    Kirk Cameron is a lousy actor and no one would even know who he was if he didn’t do his god-bot act. Stephen Hawking is an accomplished scholar and a world class scientist. Eat a bag of dicks Kirk. You suck.
