    Kid "proves" Hawking in wrong - God exists!

    A child genius - "...he has been able to prove that Stephen Hawking was wrong to say that God does not exist"
    https://www.facebook.com/JuiceMY/vid...5278672372714/
    In the video he reasons about gravity and a 13.8 billion year old universe, etc.

    Never did understand the claim it takes more faith to be an atheist...
    I mean, i did not choise atheism. I did not adopt the stance in order to acquire all the cool swag.
    I kept trying to undrrstand and validate the belirpf i had in the god i was eaised to worship.
    A little bit of evidence, a decent argument, maybe a conversation without threats?

    And this genius just repeats a cliche?
    Why don't i find that at all compelling?

    That, and the fact he rejects so much cosmology as an Atheist position...

    Meh.

    Did Stephen Hawking really say “God does not exist”?

    I thought he was more a deist of sorts. A purpose to the universe.

    I've always been curious about the weird obsession these christians seem to have with 'child geniuses' proving this or that. Why child geniuses? Why not adult geniuses?

    Scriptural support in Psalm 8:2 and Matthew 21:16.

    Also, have you never met a home-schooled 8-year-old with an inhaler, Coke bottle glasses, an armload of Dominion Kingdom textbooks, no TV, and the phrase 'per se' on his lips?

    He said God was unnecessary; that other hypotheses better explain the phenomena attributed to Him.

    So, was it smart asteroids to guide evolution (dinosaurs were lazy, inefficient fatasses, like Rush Limbaugh in his prime), or the fact that intelligence has time to escape the Earth before the sun goes full Surtr on our asses?
