We KNOW what Stephen has done. I have only hearsay and mythology on what Jesus has done. I'm not even "sure" Jesus existed. I AM quite certain he DID, as a MAN … a charismatic man, allegedly a GOOD man with (allegedly) a good measure of common sense and compassion, something lacking in certain chosen leaders of today. I'm still waiting for our knowledge of the universe to get beyond Mr. Hawking's revelations, but, I don't believe Mr. Jesus had anything to do with it.

His haircut was in style at that time.

Oooh, I have my first fan.

Don't worry, I have much to teach you.

First lesson: stop using "boi", and stop emphasizing your points by repeating an entire line of the last letter. This isn't 2005 and you're (presumably) not in the 8th grade.

Let's see Stephen Hawking create something out of nothing. That's some next level business up in this piece, homeboy.

Let's see Stephen Hawking create something out of nothing.

We did not see Jesus do that, either.

Other than in fairy tales of uncertain origin, I mean.

So let's try answering the question instead of making unfounded assertions that ignore it.

IF we ASSUME that the statements attributed to Jesus were all made by the same guy, there is an argument to be made in favor of his intelligence. He was able to identify sources of human fear that are far deeper than simple issues of physical safety, sickness, or starvation. He addressed deeper questions like:

- Am I lovable?

- Do I have a place in the universe that makes me matter despite all my failings?

- How can I move on from pain and imperfections in my past?

These are complex questions, and when people come across answers to them, we can tell whether the answer makes sense. Moreover, we can actually try out the answers to see if they actually work.

All Hawking spent his life looking at was:

- Where did the universe come from?

All of Hawking's answers were speculative, and most folks don't seem to understand them. Significantly, knowing and understanding the answer to that question would not solve a single one of the problem most folks have.

It is not unreasonable, then to assess the comparative intelligence by how clear, practical, and testable their ideas were. In that case, the conclusion would be that Jesus was smarter.

On the other hand, we could judge intelligence by whether one can figure out how to keep from getting his ankles nailed together.

I am just saying...

Let's see Stephen Hawking create something out of nothing.

But you already agreed that nothing is ever created. It is just converted from one form into another. If creation is not even possible in this universe, then why would you believe the universe itself was created? You undermined the entire basis of your argument. The universe had an initial form (i.e. the singularity) and it simply converted into the form we see today.

Steven H. is NOT a "creator", he is an "explainer". Jesus is only, by myth or "belief in a probable myth" a creator. NO FACTS! Steven is a solver of puzzles, Jesus is a puzzle. There is NO EVIDENCE that Jesus (OR his FATHER …. who are one and the same???), CREATED anything! There is evidence that Stevens "theories" are plausible, there is NO "evidence" that a "god" created anything … only myths that some believe. You COULD call them theories, but they are not based on scientifically reasoned theory, just, again, "belief".

All Jesus did was the first ever T-pose (on the cross), He gave out some bread and thought himself a roadman because he supposedly could turn water to wine (e.g. make red liquid), you get this information from the dankest dictionary of old, the brothers grim book of religion, im an informant of the dark lord himself, and Jesus died for my amusent

People like you give atheists a bad name. Wait a minute, you're NOT an atheist if you can believe in Satan, which I presume is your "dark lord" …. or are you just a Trump supporter??

People like you are not needed here or anywhere else.

I, as an atheist, hope much of the Jesus story is true. Certainly not the "Son of God" or the "miracle" parts. I don't believe them, but the parts that are totally opposite from someone like YOU, are needed.

Well, it's going to be pretty darn hard to compare the two. Both were smart in their own right but we can't really say one was smarter than the other as not only times but technology and scientific understanding have changed.

Excuse me. Jesus created an entire freaking UNIVERSE. Do you have any idea how much intelligence that would require? This is no contest.

Excuse me. Jesus created an entire freaking UNIVERSE.

Just what the literal fuck? First you falsely claimed that physical things can't create themselves. Then, for your next titbit of stupidity you claimed Jesus created a universe which predates his own (alleged) life by over 13 billion years.

Get some help. I mean it.

Jesus had talent on loan from God.

Hello c:

Are you saying that people followed Jesus because he was smart??? DUDE!

Jesus (if he existed) was not smart. He believed the earth was flat, cursed a fig tree for not bearing fruit out of season and told his disciples to not wash their hands, for nothing that goes into your mouth can hurt you. He thought disease was caused by curses and demons.
