As introduced in my last post, I ask if Stephen Hawking was a brilliant scientist or a cosmic orphan. More appropriately, did he feel more like a brilliant scientist or a person with an orphan spirit, not knowing the purpose in which he was made? Making it difficult to reveal the deeper side of Hawking is the public persona that obscures. This post is an attempt to find out the real Hawking behind public perceptions. I guess you could call this post, “Psycho-analyzing Hawking, A Christian Perspective”, and in the process to demystify some atheist memes and share a little about my own journey to home. My posts are summarized as follows: 1) Hawking’s final conclusions about God and the universe in his book “The Grand Design” are purposely incoherent but masked in confidence. 2) The heavy hitters of science disagree with it. 3) He probably knew this but did it anyway. 4) This reveals more about the deeper side of Hawking than his public persona does. 5) A person can truly know himself fully when we know God fully.

I recall my own journey. Just like Hawkings, I too got “crippled” at what was to be the prime of a man’s life, there was so much I wanted to do, my bodily components failed, and my brain functions also started to fail as well. Experience told me to despair, but intellect led me to hope. In that spirit, there are three things I would like to tell Dr. Hawkins. … More Stephen Hawking: Brilliant Scientist or Cosmic Orphan? 3 things I wish to tell him.
You know that friend that you’re waiting for that keeps texting you “I’m almost there” but hasn’t even left the house yet?
I felt that way about God many times, and just when I wanted to write about that, I had a divine meeting during my quick 2 day trip to Dallas. Why divine? Meet PJ and Ann, the two good-looking couple on the right … … More God, are you always on time? #700resumesIn7months.
Many skeptics, including myself, used to scoff at the Tower of Babel. And yet I can’t deny that it’s actually the best theory out there of why ancient languages had common theology and history even when nations couldn’t communicate with each other. The Bible is in Hebrew and Greek, so very different from Chinese. If people were evolved randomly over millions of years, it is not intuitive that separated cultures that couldn’t communicate would precisely have the same precision of “mythology” of Noah’s ark, or that the same “idea” that righteousness comes with sacrifice. This is not intuitive at all. The odds are astounding. … More The Gospel embedded in Chinese Characters
I spend years alone on Valentine’s Day wondering “who could love someone like me?”, while looking at how decades of an autoimmune disease ravaged my body, my career, relationships and mind. Doctors, charismatic prayer meetings, yoga and supplements were hardly enough to stop the decline. This post is to testify how God’s love changed everything and … More From Curses to Cupcakes – A Valentine’s Day story.

When people like Bruno Mars, Katy Perry sings, we get a sugar high, like eating a bunch full of tic tacs. And, like the anti-Mentos, “it doesn’t satisfies.”
But when God sings over you, it transforms because He speaks the past, present and future into existence, with your destiny forged through Jesus Christ. … More Vlog: Stand strong, God sings over you. #moveoverBrunoMars

I have many stories of devastation that will make anyone cringe. But I also have literally dozens of non-trivial stories that tell of God’s goodness. These were the ones that were either stepping stones – helping me believe God really does exist, He’s there, and He loves me enough to help and change me. Or the ones that were so dark and painful – these provide the contrast that set up just how redemptive the God-story lines were. … More Dear Prisoners of Hopelessness …
Fish was the topic I had a very superficial understanding of, and in an essay question, you cannot hide your ignorance. I felt my soul being crushed at that moment. If I flunk one whole essay question, you’ll never get an A. At that moment, I looked carefully at the question, it was on the mechanics of fishes – how they move, how they swim and what makes them efficient. All of a sudden, I got a solid idea (or perhaps a desperate idea), and I knew this idea came from God because almost nobody else that I asked after the exam did the same thing as I did. … More How I helped my Biology Teacher believe in Miracles
