My question is this [...] where did gravity come from? Explain that! I pray for this man's soul, that he would come to know the only Living, True God. The God that has the power not only to take his breath away, but to judge him fairly and righteously to hell if he does not repent. The same God who has the power to heal his paralyzed body. Hawking's science cannot do that.

If it weren't for science, Stephen Hawking would have died ages ago. You'd think, if he wanted him dead, you god would be more powerful than the paltry machines that science built. It's almost as though your god doesn't exist.

Grey Seer

To be perfectly honest, by your logic God was the one who inflicted Hawking's disability on him. Why, then, should Hawking worship this god of yours?

Really, there are three options here:
1) Your God does not exist
2) Your God is not omnipotent, and thus, not a god.
3) Your God exists, is omnipotent, and is Evil. Or at the very least utterly indifferent to the lot of us.

Your God answer is not valid until you A: show that God exists and B: show where God came from.

OH Atheist

God *can't* hurt Hawking. He's in an iron chariot.

"where did gravity come from? Explain that!"

Mass bends space.

Next stupid question.

9/23/2010 10:25:03 AM


I think God is afraid of wheelchairs; they remind him too much of iron chariots.

Doctor Whom

Where did gravity come from? I think we covered that in 9th-grade science. Now where did God come from?

9/23/2010 10:30:23 AM


At least this ones just asking where gravity came from and, for a change, isn't saying it's fake like "evilution".

None the less, those are some major faith blinders there dude.

The Lazy One

Going by your logic God was the one who paralyzed Hawking in the first place- who in their right mind would worship a god who caused them to be in extreme pain?

9/23/2010 10:32:54 AM


........it didn't 'come from' anywhere. It's been here. Longer than we have.

My question is this [...] where did gravity come from? Explain that!

That's a great question, princesstiki. One that a great many people are working to answer.

But I suspect that you were asking that question rhetorically, and that you think that you've already got the answer. Amirite?

I pray for this man's soul, that he would come to know the only Living, True God.

Which God is that, then? Vishnu? Is it Vishnu?

The God that has the power not only to take his breath away, but to judge him fairly and righteously to hell if he does not repent.

Wow. Your God sounds like a real dick.

The same God who has the power to heal his paralyzed body.

Wouldn't that be same God who gave Hawking his degenerative disease in the first place?

Hawking's science cannot do that.

Well, no, not really. Hawking is a Cosmologist, not a doctor of medicine.

Or is that not what you meant?

it seems that posters to Rupture Ready, are still stuck in the 16th Century, it seems, with the result that they're in danger of becoming point-source singularities, due to their apparent density...
(Albert Einstein, argued in the General Theory of Relativity, published in 1905, that gravity was the product of the distortion of space-time by mass...).
As for the poster's last dig at Hawkings, how long before someone comes up with a powered exoskeleton, that enables him to walk...?

My question is this [...] where did gravity come from? Explain that!

The Flying Spaghetti Monster holds everything down with His invisible Noodly Appendage. That's as good an answer as "God did it by magic".

9/23/2010 11:08:16 AM


Fucking Gravity... how does it work?

But science can enable people to fly. I don't think God will ever manage to make people fly. That's one up for science. Don't know what the heck you lot are going to do ...er, soon. Science = success. God = Fail.

God can't heal people with the condition that Hawking has got. God can't even heal the common cold. He can't even get out of the inside of your head. That's how weak God is, stuck inside a dullard's head. I mean to say, if I was a God and was going to be stuck in someone's head, I'd make pretty damn sure it wasn't inside a numbskull's skull. The only thing He can do is make limbs grow longer, apparently. Hallelujah!

Yeah, science hasn't been able to cure ALS . . . but scientific discoveries are the reason Stephen Hawking is still alive at all.

If your God has the power to cure Hawking, then why doesn't he? If your God is fair, righteous, and all-powerful, I'd argue that Hawking shouldn't have ALS in the first place.

But if your God miraculously cured Hawking, given that Hawking is a rather well-known scientist, wouldn't your God be providing evidence for his existance that would make people more likely to believe in him. Wouldn't Stephen Hawking in particular be more likely to believe in him? If God miraculously cured Stephen Hawking, he might just convince some people of his existance an save them from eternal damnation.

So why doesn't God do this?

Either God doesn't exist or God exists, but your concept of God in not an accurate reflection of God.

Although, I will give you one thing: you did manage to spell Hawking's name correctly. I've seen "Hawkings", "Hawkin", "Hawkins," and an innumerable other variations. So, well, at least you got that right. That's rare enough that I feel I have to commend you for it . . . which is quite depressing really.

9/23/2010 11:32:33 AM


How sick do you have to be to take glee in Hawkings condition?

Where did gravity come from? Gosh, princesstiki, that's elementary theology. The answer, of course, is God did it, or Goddunit is an acceptable alternative spelling. And why did God go to all the bother of creating gravity? He did it to help reinforce and stabilize Earth's position as the centre of the universe. The one drawback as far as the rapture goes is that now, with gravity pulling us down, it is impossible to fly without a power source. So that I imagine when the great day comes, soon, aircraft owners are going to have a profitable time of it chartering out their aircraft. Whether they'll be able to get as far as heaven is doubtful. God may have to remove gravity for a short while. Then, once you are safely ensconced in your mansion, He can turn it back on.

9/23/2010 11:43:44 AM


It's medical science, not your imaginary sky daddy that helped Stephen Hawking stay alive.

And, "where did gravity come from"? Seriously?

Congratulations. You've taken stupidity to a whole new level. You're really helping to reinforce to stereotype of stupid, ignorant Christians.

9/23/2010 12:13:42 PM


Fundies are so cute when they throw tantrums like that.

9/23/2010 12:15:35 PM


I should point out that Mr. Hawking already knows how gravity works. It's just that he doesn't have time for your bullshit.

9/23/2010 12:15:59 PM


Hawking's science cannot heal his paralyzed body because his field is physics, not medicine. Also, the fact that he's been the longest survivor of ALS ever is a pretty good indicator that Ol' Smitey isn't particularly upset with him.

You worship a pretty icky god, princess.

Old Viking

Gravity was invented by an Englishwoman named Harriet Monroe in the mid-19th Century. She got tired of sticking to the ceiling when she was inside, and floating off into space when outside.
