Hawking: ‘Heaven is a place for people afraid to die’

I love science. However, I do believe that science is meant to partner with (hold hands with) faith and the two ought, in my opinion, be like dear friends. Science once was working in harmony with the faithful — however, we know that the Church many times suppressed scientific findings and there were and continue to be numerous conflicts between religious and scientists. Its wrongful use of authority in the churches to suppress real science.

I think its wrong for religion and science to be popping off against one or the other. What I have to say isn’t to violate science.

Real science is good work making our lives more healthy and making our world a better and safer place to live. We need more responsible science… not less.

I want to take exception with marketing practices of scientism (not science).

About William Ockham

I am a father of two with eclectic interests in theology, philosophy and sports. I chose the pseudonym William Ockham in honor of his contributions to philosophy, specifically Occam's Razor, and its contributions to modern scientific theory. My blog (www.teilhard.com) explores Ignatian Spirituality and the intersection of faith, science and reason through the life and writings of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (pictured above).

  1. I think in a short time we may se a breakthrough science that may jolt Hawking physics and M-theory out of the news… I’m praying for this. God is Good!

    • I agree Eric. I enjoyed reading Hawking’s earlier books. They were very well done in that they translated current science into language I could understand. His latest works (including parts of The Grand Design) go way beyond the science into philosophy, an area which Hawking is not particularly competent. Moreover, Hawking’s scientific reputation seems to be waning as well. I listened to a recent NPR podcast in which prominent scientists were diplomatically saying that Hawking’s latest scientific publications are off base (ironically, one of the guests on the podcasts was noted proponent of atheistic scientism, Laurence Krauss).

      Peace,
      W. Ockham
