Stephen Hawking on PBS

Diana and I were captivated by the PBS show on Stephen Hawking. It is astonishing what the team around him was able to support during the last 40 years. It is a beautifully tender film.

The technology, the nursing support, the support of his students in the face of such a debilitating disease is for me a testament to the presence of God in the community of his supporters. For my money, even spontaneous creation is not an argument for non-existence.

That Jonah can point to the one who creates the sea and the dry land, and the psalms to the one who creates the heavens and the earth is as good an argument for presence. Let's take our responsibilities seriously and not squander our lives on falsity.
