Texas State Rep. Briscoe Cain Trolls Stephen Hawking After His Death
Republican Texas state Rep. Briscoe Cain trolled Nobel Prize-winning theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking after he passed away on March 13:
Stephen Hawking now knows the truth about how the universe was actually made.
My condolences to his family.

Cain defended his trolling of the dead scientist to the American-Statesman:
While many see him as one of the greatest public intellectuals of the last century, and no one disputes that he was brilliant, the fact remains that God exists.
My tweet was to show the gravity of the Gospel and what happens when we die, namely, that we all will one day meet the Creator of the universe face to face.
Stephen Hawking was a vocal atheist, who advocated against and openly mocked God. Hawking has said, “[T]here is no god. No one created our universe, and no one directs our fate.” And, elsewhere, “I’m an atheist.”
Cain provided no proof of his God to the American-Statesman.
