Stephen Hawking - The Universe in a Nutshell

No Heaven and Hell?
Universe in a Nutshell?
It just does not ‘jell’!

Man could be wiped out, warns Hawking

Professor Stephen Hawking... considered to be one of the most brilliant physicists in the world today,
author of bestselling book...
A Brief History of Time
has suggested...
...that mankind possibly has only 1000 years left.
Quoted from the U.K. Daily Mail
- Saturday 30 September 2000

Professor Hawking...
launching his new book, The Universe in a Nutshell says...
"But unless the human race spreads into space I doubt it will survive the next 1000 years". Even for those who take his prognostications seriously there is of course the realisation that with just perhaps the allotted 'three score years and ten' to look forward to, this present generation has nothing to be too concerned about! There is of course always the possibility that through the cracking of the Human Genome code that mankind could increase in longevity to the point of having to consider with more seriousness the concerns expressed by Professor Hawking.

The purpose of science is, of course, to establish knowledge through close observation and experimentation in a particular field, followed by the establishment of data and verifiable principles. Scientists are not prophets and their theories regarding the future of mankind will always remain mere theories.

Thankfully we do have a reliable means of considering the future of the human race in the Holy Bible, which contains a more sure word of prophecy.(2 Peter 1:19). Verifying that the world will NOT end. For those who follow the Christian faith there is the five-fold ministry of the Church which includes the office of prophet. So through the study of the Holy Scriptures and by the leading of the Holy Spirit it is possible to know that the human race will survive. This in spite of the fact that present day Signs of the Times demonstrate that a period of Great Tribulation is to come upon the world. However we do have a sure and certain hope known as the Blessed Hope, i.e. the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, heralding the establishment of the Kingdom of God also referred to as the Millennium Kingdom. Following this there is the regeneration the New Heavens and the New Earth leading into the Eternal Kingdom.

G.K. Chesterton
"The human race, to which many of my readers belong, has been playing at children's games from the beginning, and will probably do it till the end, which is a nuisance for the few people who grow up. And one of the games to which it is most attached is called, 'keep tomorrow dark', and which is also named (by the rustics in Shropshire, I have no doubt) 'Cheat the Prophet'. The players listen very carefully and respectfully to all that the clever men have to say about what is to happen in the next generation. The players then wait until all the clever men are dead, and bury them nicely. Then they go and do something else. That is all. For a race of simple tastes, however, it is great fun. "

Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
