For those who love the man, mostly because he's in a wheelchair...

For the record, I'm much more of a suskind fan.

I love the man because he is brilliant. The fact that he has ALS is interesting, but that's it.

Also, I understand where he is coming from. For all we know, other forms of intelligent life (assuming they exist) may not be too friendly to us. I'm not saying stop looking. I am just saying that I can understand his caution.

I like him because he has made some amazing discoveries in his field, and he has helped to change the world of theoretical physics. Einstein was proven wrong multiple times. That doesn't change the fact that he was one of the most amazing physicists in history. I don't care about his health. If I thought he was stupid, i would say so.

Never said the man was stupid. Simply stated he and his theories are not dissected as vehemently as they should. Einstein found his own mistakes.

And Hawking hasn't found any of his own? Also, Einstein didn't find all of them. Static universe?

Then, what are you waiting for, let's hear your refutations?

Hawking has such an imagination... but on the whole, this is something we have to be concerned about. We are not alone in this universe.

That is a rediculious assurtion. The information paradox has been very much examined and is called a paradox for a reason. It never sat well with him and he even came out with another theory that there realy is no information loss..

Hawking deals with theoretical science. His work has not been testable. He has a very healthy relationship with other theoretical scientists with debating and examining ideas other than due to physical limitations it is extremely time consuming.

To say he gets a free pass because of his disability is dishonest.

Einstein thought there were hidden varriables which explained the odd behavior of quantum mechanics. He was wrong and didn't find that mistake.

Stephen Hawking is one of many theoretical physicists out there but is far more well known to the layman for a host of reasons. Do not assume that his celebrity status is an indicator of his theoretical prowess however.

Hawking has actually contributed rather little to our understanding of nature, his work on black holes is not particularly ground breaking and he has his many critics among his peers.

Personally I see the whole preoccupation with Hawking as a sad reflection on our science education, there are hundreds of theoretical physicists doing equally if not more insightful research that the layman never hears of.

But don't think I have no grounds for my views, watch this BBC documentary to get more info on this:

http://www.dailymotion.com...

The general public seem to think Hawking discovered black holes but he did not, there theoretical viability has been discussed for many many years he has made several insightful contributions of course and is a very competent theoretician but there are many theoretical physicists who work in this area but through choice or circumstance prefer to remain on the sidelines, by nature few of them are publicity seekers or writers of pop science.

I never said I hated you, I just want to punch your lights out for what you said about the Challenger crew. That went way over the line.

You completely encapsulated why I started this thread. WAy to recognize there is more to Astro physics than just those the media and shows on discovery science are preoccupied with (Tyson, Kaku, hawking)

So, you two boneheads are pissed off that folks like Tyson, Kaku, hawking are trying to get people interested and excited about science. How very sad.

If you take issue with what I wrote then why not attack what I wrote rather than attack me?

I love the man because he is brilliant. The fact that he has ALS is interesting, but that's it.

Also, I understand where he is coming from. For all we know, other forms of intelligent life (assuming they exist) may not be too friendly to us. I'm not saying stop looking. I am just saying that I can understand his caution.

Stephen Hawking is one of many theoretical physicists out there but is far more well known to the layman for a host of reasons. Do not assume that his celebrity status is an indicator of his theoretical prowess however.

Hawking has actually contributed rather little to our understanding of nature, his work on black holes is not particularly ground breaking and he has his many critics among his peers.

Personally I see the whole preoccupation with Hawking as a sad reflection on our science education, there are hundreds of theoretical physicists doing equally if not more insightful research that the layman never hears of.

But don't think I have no grounds for my views, watch this BBC documentary to get more info on this:

http://www.dailymotion.com...

The general public seem to think Hawking discovered black holes but he did not, there theoretical viability has been discussed for many many years he has made several insightful contributions of course and is a very competent theoretician but there are many theoretical physicists who work in this area but through choice or circumstance prefer to remain on the sidelines, by nature few of them are publicity seekers or writers of pop science.

Typical dumbazz. Watches a show on Matteo now has a phd.

In short, your vitriol is boring. I've read it. So, fvck off and have a nice day.

No, your comments are boring. Your constant potshots at people indicate you have an inner anger but hey, if you list your age correctly, is rather unbecoming.

Diazepam, lubrium, klonopin, amazapam, etc.. can help with that anger. Lol

I've seen that before. Sometime before 2015 when I got rid of direct tv (it was either on BBC America or disc science). It's been written about extensively;

And a bunch of things on the holographic principle:

More of the bore. You like to weigh in and name call in the religion forum as well... since this thread was about hawking and aliens, which is about as out there as, what do you call them god-botherers??? And now you are defending with absolutely NO SUBSTANCE, yet cloaking credibility by having a tantrum...

I gave you a small list to hell with those tantrums. Normally I don't communicate with no-it-Allan that don't say anything except belittlements, but, with your age and actions, you're actually cracking me up. So please continue as the first set of games are boring and my team doesn't play till 3:30.
