Stephen Hawking has died at the age of 76.

RE: Stephen Hawking has died at the age of 76.
Because none of you clowns have ever demonstrated any evidence* of an afterlife.

Evidence in this case does not mean your fucking bible-based opinions.

If he had been a theist, his surviving ALS for almost 50 years would be considered a sign of divine favor by many.

It won't be long before theists start arguing Hawking was a believer. They pulled that shit after the death of Einstein and the worst example was Anthony Flew.

That sounds like a textbook example of the argument from ignorance.

Your bible IS NOT, nor ever was a science textbook. You are the one being willfully ignorant. 

That was then, this is now. You claiming we are arguing from ignorance is laughable.

That which can be asserted without evidence, can be rationally dismissed without evidence.

The time scale to evaporate a black hole via Hawking Radiation is rather longish. Particularly in a 6000 year old God universe. One might wonder why a physical/quantum mechanical process could/should/would run for 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 years in such a theistic universe.
 The granting of a pardon is an imputation of guilt, and the acceptance a confession of it.

If Road can show me some evidence of a person existing before they were born, I’ll convert to Christianity on the spot!  😝

Anthony Flew did become a deist, while he was yet quite alive yet.  And Einstein from reading his words seemed to vary quite a bit.  He said many things that can be taken either way.

Would you like to address the accusation (issue) or are you just going to keep trying to change the subject?    And as we have discussed before, whether something is new or old, makes no difference on whether it is true or reasonable.

I would also add reason to that quip, but that's just me.

I do however like the help on the subject though... thanks.

Oh, so you’re an atheist now?  That was easy!  😉
