Quote# 76287

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.

Well then let's see God do it.

Princesstiki is right, Stephen Hawking's science can't heal him. But Watson and Krick's science, and the sciences that were built off of it, potentially can.

I fear my last comment might have been a wee bit too subtle to accurately communicate my weariness in having to post this link so many times as a response to drivel of this kind.

"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."

Your infidel religion can't do that either. Only submission to Allah and the Sunna of Mohammed can do that.

"Where did gravity come from?" is my new fundie moron indicator. It replaces "If we all came from monkeys why are there still monkeys?"
Science stands a better chance of curing Hawking's amyotrophic lateral sclerosis than praying to your god ever will. He hasn't seen fit to cure shit in 6000 years.
Science on the other hand has cured smallpox, polio, measles, whooping cough, tuberculosis, bubonic plague, leprosy, some types of blindness and deafness, syphilis, gonorrhoea, and so on ad nauseam.

"The same God who has the power to heal his paralyzed body, but chooses not to".

There. Fixed.

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

Gravitons? Warping of space-time due to mass? Gravity elves? I'm not really up on the current research. I do know that "Goddidit!" still isn't a valid hypothesis though.

"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."

You appear to have skipped the step where you substantiate your assertion that this god being of yours has any such power or authority, nor did you show that such an entity exists to begin with.

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

Now, now. The amputees were in line first and they're still waiting for their regrown limbs. Hawking doesn't get to cut in line just because he's fucking brilliant.

"Hawking's science cannot do that."

Hawking is a physicist, not a physician. Subtle difference, I know. Particularly to people who think "science" is some sort of uberfield that someone can be a specialist in.

I can actually explain where gravity came from, since I've recently read a book on the subject. Gravity arose as a necessary requirement for the universe to exist in the first place. The universe arose as a quantum fluctuation, and gravity is what prevented it from collapsing in on itself when it formed. So, the fact that we exist proves that the universe can sustain us, which requires gravity.

And ironically, the book I read was partially written by Stephen Hawking...

where did gravity come from?

Who says gravity has to "come from" anything? Even if we couldn't answer the question through science doesn't mean "Goddidit."

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.

Funny how this God who created the universe hates anyone who is trying to figure out how it works. Maybe he's afraid someone will pay attention to the man behind the curtain? But he apparently can't seem to keep us from learning about the universe we live in.

The same God who has the power to heal his paralyzed body. Hawking's science cannot do that.

You know what? Neither can prayer. But if I had to bet on one, it'd be science.

I'll bet you cash money that when we do have the cure for ALS, it'll be in the hands of a scientist, not an angel.

> where did gravity come from?

Who cares? Creator-worship makes as much sense as postman-worship. Postmen are useful, but not necessarily worth starting a church over. Likewise, it may or may not be useful to find the Creator, but so what? We already exist.

If you want answers on origins of things, you should first understand how they work. The better we understand how gravitation works, the better we also understand how gravitation has affected the development of the universe. Get it?

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

Then why doesn't He do it? Evil intent, or plain ordinary meanness?

> Hawking's science cannot do that.

Science and technology has kept him alive and functional.

Um... Hawking didn't say there is no god, nor does he feel there's a need to disprove him. In fact, he admits that science can do no such thing. What science can do and has done is prove that god was not necessary to bring the universe into existence, including gravity.

'Righteously' condemning someone to eternal torture for a finite offence must be the classic oxymoron.

Professor Hawking has been incapable of speech for many years and their mythical sky guy still hasn't managed to shut him up.

Gravity is interaction of a larger spacial body with another. Mass warping space. I learned that in 8th or 9th grade science class, but you were too busy reading about how we are all incestuous descendants of two people.

And Stephen Hawking would have died decades ago if it wasn't for that "ebil science".

As for Living God? Where?

9/23/2010 4:21:34 PM



Hawking's science is that of cutting edge physics. Not medicine.

I demand the demotivational of Lego Hawking with the tag line: "Can kick your pansy ass."

The same God who has the power to heal his paralyzed body. Hawking's science cannot do that.

So why didn't your god heal his body?

Explain this! Where did God come from?

The more "God would have healed you already if you just BELIEVED" shit I read, the more I want to hit people over the head with the book of Job.

princesstiki.
"My question is this [...] where did gravity come from?"
Your question is stupid.
Gravity is a property of mass.
It did not "come from" anywhere.

"Explain that!"
Explain what?
You have not presented anything to explain.
All you have done is ask a stupid question.
