Quoted from 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," he added. Hawking describes human being as a computer that it would stop working when its components fail. However, he fails to point out that there are many discrepancies between a computer and a human being for the following reasons: a) Computer is without emotion and is immobile, but human beings could move around they like and have emotion and could respond to surrounding environment; b) Computer does not have soul, but human beings have souls and that is why there is afterlife for human beings. As human beings are living things and computers are non-living things, it is erroneous to use the nature of computers to determine the same for human beings. Thus, his support that human beings would be the same as computers to cease in working and there should be no afterlife, is rather erroneous. Stephen Hawking also mentioned that tiny quantum fluctuations in the very early universe became the seeds from which galaxies, stars, and ultimately human life emerged. "Science predicts that many different kinds of universe will be spontaneously created out of nothing. It is a matter of chance which we are in," he said. Queries have been raised pertaining to tiny quantum fluctuation that has assumed by him to have existed prior to the formation of the universe. a) As Stephen Hawking was not born prior to the formation of the universe, how does he know tiny quantum fluctuation did exist prior to its formation? b) Who was the one that created quantum fluctuation prior to the formation of the universe? c) Let’s assume that there is quantum fluctuation prior to the formation of the universe, what made that fluctuation to be so effective to create planets in this universe especially almost all the planets look identically, i.e. many planets look round.
