But he said it was taking place to enjoy life more. In an interview with The Guardian, ahead of the keynote presentation on Tuesday, Professor Hawking discusses his thoughts about death.

He rejected the idea of?? Life after death and stressed, which he described as the need to fulfill our potential on Earth, making good use of our lives.

Physicist Stephen Hawking believes that there is no afterlife, and that the concept of heaven is a “fairy tale” for people who fear death.

In an interview published in The Guardian, Hawking – author of the bestseller “A Brief History of Time” – says that when the brain stops working, that’s all.

“I think the brain as a computer will stop working when their components,” said Ian The Guardian shows. “There is no heaven or beyond broken computers; that is a fairy tale for people afraid of the dark”

Hawking, 69, who has survived for nearly five decades with a motor neuron disease which doctors believed would kill him when he was in his 20 years of age, said he did not fear death. He also said that having lived with the prospect of the death of his incurable disease, has ultimately led him to enjoy life more.

“I have no fear of death, but I’m in no hurry to die. I have so many things I want to do first,” he said.

Hawking was the target of criticism from religious circles, where his most recent book, “The Grand Design”, argued there was no need for a creator to explain the existence of the universe.

We must use the effective theory Darwinian natural selection of the companies most likely to survive. We assign greater value. ”

When asked what she found most beautiful science, Hawking said: “Science is beautiful when it makes a simple explanation of the phenomena or the connections between different observations. Examples include the double helix in biology, and equations fundamental physics. ”

Hawking said that our existence is due to chance, and that a goal should be to “seek the highest value of our stock.”
