Physicist Stephen Hawking denounced for believing human beings are biological robots with no consciousness or free will
In “The God Within,” Adams takes aim at famed physicist Stephen Hawking, author of the book “The Grand Design.” In that book, Hawking claims that human beings are merely “biological machines” with no consciousness, no souls, no spirit, no mind and nothing but a collection of organized chemicals that run physical brains in a deterministic machine-like way. This belief, says filmmaker Mike Adams, also the editor of NaturalNews.com, is a dangerous pretext for the “scientific” experimentation on human beings because it fails to recognize the value of life, free will or conscious experience.
In the name of “medical science,” outrageous horrors have been committed against humanity. President Obama recently apologized to Guatemala for the U.S. government’s involvement in illegal and inhumane medical experiments conducted on psychiatric patients in that country. The true history of human medical experiments — all carried out in the name of “science” — is quite frightening and spans hundreds of years, involving the lives of tens of thousands of innocent victims of “scientific medicine.”
Medical experiments on humans and animals are widely conducted under the assumption that both people and animals have no consciousness, thus their screams of pain are merely “biological reactions” that represent no actual suffering or “real” experience. This has been the core philosophy of science and medicine traced back through centuries — a kind of pathological detachment from reality.
As Adams presents in The God Within, the idea that human beings are mere biological robots with no consciousness or free will is the perfect pretext for genocidal crimes carried out against innocent people in the name of science. “The fact that modern scientific thinking utterly fails to recognize the existence of consciousness, a mind or a soul helps explain why so much of today’s science is so destructive to life on our planet,” says Adams, who points to GMOs, chemical pesticides, and the psychiatric drugging of children as ready examples of how runaway science has failed to value life.
Science has forgotten the all-important trait of empathy, Adams explains, and without empathy there is no mechanism by which scientists can recognize the suffering caused by their GMOs, pesticides, dangerous medications and toxic synthetic chemicals that pollute our world. When so-called “science” is carried out with the goal of increasing corporate profits rather than protecting and improving the experience of life on our planet, it becomes “an agent of destruction,” says Adams.
