Simple. Because all evidence suggests otherwise: Your de facto close-mindedness has led to your complaint while Hawking, with his truly open spirit, has successfully looked into the mind of God. Thus he is grateful to have this life to appreciate the grand design of the Universe.
What evidence? There is none. If there was you wouldn't need belief.
Just like I don't believe cats exist, I know they exist.
If you know a god exists, you wouldn't need belief nor faith. You would know.
There is zero evidence for a gods existence. None.
It sounds that you've not read The Language of God by Francis Collins.
Oh let me guess, it states a premise and jumps to a conclusion without support to the premise? But you were convinced.
No I haven't read it but just for kicks, give us its best argument for evidence of a god. I bet I've heard it before.
Yes, you oppose God for kicks, while Collins supports God for science. That is a big difference.
Male cow feces.
I bet you think astrology is science too lol.
He who laughs last laughs best. Your ignorance betrays your empty mind.
In his book, Francis Collins strongly confirms that Darwin's Theory - the theory of evolution by providing rich evidence of human genomics, pointing out that it is the sound foundation of the science of life. As the leader of global human genome project, his contribution to science is undeniable. He's convinced many Christians to believe that Darwin's Theory of Evolution is sound science, not something hypothetical.
And you? A nobody with your inane laughs, simply knows how to pat on your own back and tell yourself how smart you are. No, you are not. People around the world pay attention to Francis Collins, because he's a world-renowned scientist. And no one gives a damn to you. You are simply a driveller who said that Collins's profound knowledge on human genomics that defends Darwin's Theory of Evolution is "Male cow feces."
