Stephen Hawking in the News

I read this yesterday and I was confused.
Acclaimed physicist Stephen Hawking has said that humanity is finally getting close to understanding the origin of the universe.

Speaking at a lecture in Hong Kong, Hawking said that despite some theoretical advances in the past years, there are still mysteries as to how the universe began.

"Despite having had some great successes, not everything is solved. We do not yet have good theoretical understanding of the observation of the expansion of the universe," he told an audience of 2,500 at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.

"Without such understanding, we cannot be sure of the future of the universe.

"New observational results and theoretical advances are coming in rapidly; cosmology is a very exciting subject. We are getting close to answering these old questions: why are we here, where did we come from?"
I don't understand why Hawking and his ilk even bother. I realize he's based in England, but I am sure there are many many "scientists" teaching here at our taxpayer-funded universities or in our public schools in America who'd agree with him.

All this "research" into a godless cosmology is a waste of money, isn't it? I mean we already know the answers, don't we? It's so obvious that even people with no scientific training whatsoever sitting on school boards across the country can see the plain truth.

We don't need any multi-billion dollar "research" to tell us what we already know deep in our hearts: The universe is so complicated it must've been designed. Therefore there must've been A Designer. So however the universe looks, The Designer must've wanted it to look that way. So any research into it is, in effect, questioning the authenticity of The Design - so it shouldn't be done, it should just be accepted. End of story. No need to research any farther.

So all that money wasted on "science" should, instead, be put to better use by being handed off to our great nation's faith based charities. We need to start teaching our children the real truth:
  • America is a Christian Nation.
  • Jesus wants us to drill for oil in Alaska.
  • Whatever The United States does it's the right thing to do.
  • The fossil record proves that "ancient" man and the dinosaurs co-existed.
  • The jury is still out on global warming.
  • Our God is bigger than their God.
  • Marriage is a sacred bond between a man and a woman.
  • Sex is for making babies.
  • You can catch AIDS through tears and sweat.
  • STDs are God's punishment for immoral behavior.
  • God hates homosexuals.
There. I feel better now. Feel free to add any other obvious truths in the comments section.

Homosexuals are pedophiles who want to 'convert' everyone to their 'lifestyle' to fulfill the wishes of their ruler-Satan.
Christian men are way smarter than anyone - including women.

Actually, as an aside, I bought Hawking's book "A Brief History of Time" on tape about 10 years ago (and have since lost the verdammt thing) for those oh-so-tedious drives. Anyway, the narrator, and thus Hawking, talked aboout how the Catholic Church and cosmology. It seems that they were cool with "Big Bang" theory as it was consistent with "Let There Be Light." Hawking surmised that the Papacy didn't wanna get burned the way did after the whole Galileo thing. So it seems that there's hope after all.
