Ateizm Hawkinga.[edytuj kod]

Stephen Hawking zdecydowanie nie jest ateistą. Lepsze określenie dla niego to agnostyk lub nawet deista.

źródła: Not surprisingly, the principal influence in Stephen's early life was his mother, Isobel. Isobel Hawking was a member of the Communist Party in England in the 1930's, and her son has carried some of that intellectual tradition right through his life. Incidentally, Hawking's fame is now such that he felt obligated to endorse one of the candidates in the 2000 United States presidential election. By the time he was 13, Hawking's hero was the brilliant agnostic philosopher and mathematician, Bertrand Russell. At the same age, two of Hawking's friends became Christians as a result of the 1955 Billy Graham London campaign. According to his 1992 biographers (Michael White and John Gribben), Hawking stood apart from these encounters with "a certain amused detachment." There is little in A Brief History of Time that deviates in a significant way from what we know of the religious views of the 13-year-old Stephen Hawking. However, we must note that in public questioning Hawking insists that he is not an atheist. And I am told by eyewitness observers that in recent years Stephen Hawking has appeared "once or twice a month" in an Anglican church with his second wife.

The first time I read A Brief History of Time, admittedly not critically, for the first 100 pages or so I thought, "This is a great book; Hawking is building a splendid case for creation by an intelligent being." But things then begin to change and this magnificent cosmological epic becomes adulterated by poor philosophy and theology. For example, Hawking writes on page 122 of the first edition, "These laws (of physics) may have originally been decreed by God, but it appears that He has since left the universe to evolve according to them and does not now intervene in it". The grounds on which Hawking claims "it appears" are unstated, and a straw God is set up that is certainly not the God who is revealed in time and space and history. What follows is a curious mixture of deism and the ubiquitous "god of the gaps." Stephen Hawking thus appears uncertain (agnostic) of his belief in a god of his own creation.

Now, lest any reader be uncertain, let me emphasize that Hawking strenuously denies charges that he is an atheist. When he is accused of atheism, he is affronted and says that such assertions are not true. For example, Hawking has stated "I thought I had left the question of the existence of a Supreme Being completely open. . . It would be perfectly consistent with all we know to say that there was a Being who was responsible for all the laws of physics." Stephen Hawking is probably an agnostic or a deist (a believer in an impersonal god) or something in between these two positions, his recent church attendance notwithstanding. He is certainly not an atheist and sometimes does not even appear very sympathetic to atheism.

Myślę, że to wystarczy. Wiem, że na polskich stronach jest propagowany ateizm, ale tutaj jest po prostu wprowadzanie ludzi w błąd. Proponuję usunąć tą linijkę z ciekawostek.

  • 1) to nie jest ciekawostka tylko istotna informacja która powinna znaleźć swoje miejsce w odrębnej sekcji poświęconej poglądom fizyka. Nie mam dostępu do książki podanej w usuniętym przez Ciebie przypisie, ale po lekturze hasła z en wikipedii jestem skłonny częściowo przyznać Ci rację - wydaje się, że Hawking nie zadeklarował otwarcie ateizmu a z jego wypowiedzi można wyciągać podobne do Twoich wnioski. 2) natomiast wciąż uważam, że podawane przez Ciebie źródła nie są odpowiednie. Według cytowanej przez Ciebie strony ateizm jest zarzutem, co kiepsko wróży bezstronności autora. Sam zresztą uważasz że ateizm jest "propagowany".. może lepiej żeby ktoś mniej uprzedzony zredagował brakującą sekcję w haśle. Pozdrawiam Filip em 11:40, 2 sie 2010 (CEST)

Niniejszą anegdotę podaję za brytyjskim The Guardian: „In his finals, he came borderline between a first- and second-class degree. Convinced that he was seen as a difficult student, he told his viva examiners that if they gave him a first he would move to Cambridge to pursue his PhD. Award a second and he threatened to stay. They opted for a first.” https://amp.theguardian.com/science/2018/mar/14/stephen-hawking-professor-dies-aged-76
