Kids loved watching his Universe Series, a marvel for sure.

Admired his will but didn't care for the guy.  He thought he was God.

Maybe so Ron. I thought that he believed the universe itself was god, though he never said it in so many words.

Through all his hardships he always maintained his sense of humor.

His intellect is what fascinated me. His religious beliefs or, lack thereof, never detracted from that, for me. Whatever his beliefs or speculations, he knows for sure, now.

I watched an interview that Neil De Grasse Tyson had with Steven Hawkins a short time ago. When asked about the future of the humans on earth, he sounded very pessimistic. He said , "Not in his words" We will accomplish amazing things if we can get past the next 100 years., but unless the world changes the direction it going in, we may not reach that time

When asked his views concerning religion,  he basically said that religions came about from superstitions. People are comforted  by their religious beliefs, and religion will continue to exist as long as humans are here. They do not understand science of the universe as it exists

I'd say that in his mind, God doesn't exist. Guess he knows the answer for sure now.

That is true. He was a practicing atheist.

Like all of us, we will know for certain at the end of this life.

Unfortunately, at that time, there will be no do-overs or opportunity to change what we believe.

Or maybe not if he was right.  Either way we won't be disappointed.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
