Heavenly poll

You’ve probably already heard the latest blunt comment from Stephen Hawking:

I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail. There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.

I like it. Very clear.

Now a newspaper wants to know what you think.

Do you think heaven exists?

Yes

30%

No

70%

I think we can improve those numbers.
