Life and Death According To Stephen Hawking

"I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail. There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark."

Ahh, I feel all warm and fuzzy.

From here.

I guess we can't really know what's on his heart. But it does seem like a very foolish thing for such a smart guy to say. How would he know?
