There is no heaven, says Stephen Hawking

RELIGION - Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking says there is no heaven and no room for heaven or any other fairy tales in his explanation of the cosmos.

In an interview conducted in London England, the 69-year-old physicist says the human brain is a like a computer that will stop working when its components fail. We just die and that is the end of it.

Hawking says: “There is no heaven or afterlife for broken-down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.”

In his book “Grand Design”, Hawking declared that it was “not necessary to invoke God... to get the universe going.” Instead the universe is like a giant clock. It keeps going and going because it has to. There is no end to it.

Hawking says he is not afraid of death, but adds: “I’m in no hurry to die. I have so much I want to do first.”
