Sunday School: Stephen Hawking on the afterlife



“I regard the brain as a computer with will stop working when tis components fail. There is no heaven or afterlife for broken-down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.” ~ Stephen Hawking.


  1. Maybe, maybe not. This is a question that we have opinions about in accordance with our belief systems but no direct knowledge of. These unknowns make life interesting for many.


  2. A computer that can imagine fairy stories and experience fear... what a strange device.

  3. Brain computer is also dependent on other outside components being ok. Eg liver. Black Livers matter.
