← Stephen Hawking: 'There is no heaven; it's a fairy story'

"I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail. There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark," he added.

Perfect analysis of subjective human emotion, which is why they have invented so many 'gods' during their time on Earth. In spite of this they still blind themselves with the same overpowering emotion to simply 'invent' their own 'true version' of all the falsehoods humanity has failed and fallen upon as if they, somehow, have the true version. This very cycle is revealing in itself, but a 'believer' is ill to it! They even use it to promote hatreds and all manner of human sufferings and magnified negative desires. Some god? Some pervert of claimed human intellect - but forgive them for they cannot see what they follow in the footsteps of or from where such ideas truly stem and have been blinded to the reason that surrounds them!!

Such are their hatreds and such are their desires that they would be consumed by the 'feelings' of all their ancestors before they take up a gram of reason!

Touche Stephen.
