God hates a smartass and might smite Prof Hawking with one of his bolts-from-the-blue

London - (Pie-in-the-Sky/String Vest Theory News): The odds of Stephen Hawking being killed by an 'act of God' such as a meteor strike or bolt of lightning have shortened to 8/13Fav, according to online bookmakers Aintgottaprayer.con.

The physicist said this week that the laws of gravity preclude the existence of a supreme being such as God because there's a whole pile of money to be made from pushing that particular theory.

Hawking's rationale is that religion peddlers have had an easy time monopolising people's natural credulity about the supernatural.

The deity's existence and attributed creation of the universe has been underpinned by centuries of organised ecclesiastical hogwash - whose prima facie purpose is a massive $$$s protection racket.

Only science can break that closed shop monopoly by staking alternative claims about cosmic knowledge - and elevating useless old tossers such as Prof Hawking to the divine.

Another Hawking book full of meaningless scientific gobbledygook is to be published later in the year, price forty five guineas.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
