Prove it. Show your proof. As a mathemetician, I heard this frequently. The most astonishing proof of all times was when a professor demonstrated, through a mathematical proof, that something divided by zero is NOT infinity, but undefined.
I thought for a while, and my rationalization was that x/y, as y becomes infinitesimally small, the result approaches infinity. I watched carefully as he began to write the proof on the chalkboard. Soon he had shown in some cases where the result could equal Pi (which today is Pi day), 1 or several other values. Thus, if it doesn’t ALWAYS equal the same number, then it is “undefined”.
Steven Hawking passed away today. He outlived most people with ALS, and in some ways he was a genius. While his genius was spent on theoretical physics and theoretical cosmology, he proclaimed to believe there is no God, and when we die, that’s it. We are no more. I think he said something to the effect that our brains are nothing more than a computer, and when we die, that computer shuts off.
He now knows different. I say this because he was an example of ever learning, but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth.
His death brought out a lot of comments from believers. People were commenting saying, “I guess he is finding out that God does exist”, and “Looks like he’ll discover there’s more after this life after all”, etc.
Then, you have the atheist commented, mostly trolling, saying, “Prove there’s a God. Hawking has published papers, where are your papers proving there’s a God.”
Prove any of Hawking’s theories.
The tip should be Hawking was a “theoretical” physicist. That means, nothing he taught had any physical proof, only rationalizations of what “might be”.
How is that any different than most people who believe in God?
Well, the short answer is… God is real. Theoretical physics may… or may not be real. In either case, nobody can prove either one to you — especially if you are unwilling to do what is required to find your evidence.
When it comes to Hawking’s theories, I could care less if they are true or false. It makes no difference in the scheme of things. However, when it comes to knowing God, it makes all the difference in the world… and the life hereafter.
