Wait -- so there's no heaven, or it's just not wheelchair accessible?
Stephen Hawking, in a tireless effort to bring the church down on him like the great thinkers that have come before him (I hope you have nitrous boost on that wheelchair!), first proclaimed there is no God (not even of war -- don't listen to him, Kratos!), and has now stated there's no heaven or afterlife either. BUT I WANT TO SEE MY FAMILY DOG AGAIN.
Famed theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking finds no room for heaven in his vision of the cosmos.
In an interview published Monday in The Guardian newspaper, the 69-year-old says the human brain is a like a computer that will stop working when its components fail.
He says: "There is no heaven or afterlife for broken-down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark."
In "Grand Design," a book published last year, Hawking had declared that it was "not necessary to invoke God ... to get the universe going."
Damn bro, I'm not sure a theoretical astrophysicist is really gonna change any minds on this one. Besides, I don't think anybody was actually planning on taking their physical brain to heaven with them anyways. "I was." And the Playstation? "There's electricity!"

Thanks to Dina, R-Man Machete, nasser, Pam and Bria, who, â™« would you know my name -- if I saw you in heaven? â™« "No, you've never told us." WELL TOO BAD!
