1. What is so interesting about this, which I still find incredible, is that on my show Tuesday, my guest and I were talking about black holes, string theory, quantum physics and more. Then the very next day, we hear that Stephen Hawkings passed away.

    During the discussion, my guest did a wonderful job tying in the idea of the multiverse with the message of salvation. I would have loved it if by some chance, Stephen had heard it before leaving this Earth.

    Another thing of note is this idea that brilliance is an atheistic attribute. Over time, people have come to believe in this idea that the more you know about ONE particular thing in the observation of the world around us, then you acknowledge that God had nothing to do with it. It amazes me how EXPERTS in one field can make these far reaching statements. I mean, a doctor who is an expert in cardiology can’t expressly say he knows more about the human body and there can come to some conclusion about the entire human body.

    The same thing goes for ONE FIELD OF STUDY in the scientific discipline. How can a scientist make a profound when she doesn’t know everything? But perhaps you’re right Travis. Maybe he bowed to the pressures of the day.

    I do think brilliant people are harder to please but at the end of the day, a lot of very smart people fall to their knees before their Heavenly Father, prostrate even realizing their brilliance has NOTHING on His omniscience.

    And I enjoy reading your opinion! Go Travis!

  2. In my experience in a number of online discussions with atheists, Travis, there’s a lot of poor reasoning masked as intelligence. Over and over I hear the demand that theists “demonstrate” God’s existence. It doesn’t seem to matter that you clearly state that the invisible can’t be demonstrated by the visible, that the supernatural can’t be proved by the natural. They end up saying odd things like I don’t disbelieve in god, I just don’t believe he exists.

    But I agree with you—ALS is not a reason for any degeneration in the thinking processes, at least based on others who suffered from the disease. Now the disease of sin is a different story!

    Would that Dr. Hawking dealt with his sin problem before it was too late.
