    Physicist Stephen Hawking dies aged 76

    9 minutes ago

    The British theoretical physicist was known for his groundbreaking work with black holes and relativity, and was the author of several popular science books including A Brief History of Time.

    His children, Lucy, Robert and Tim, said: "We are deeply saddened that our beloved father passed away today.

    "He was a great scientist and an extraordinary man whose work and legacy will live on for many years."

    They praised his "courage and persistence" and said his "brilliance and humour" inspired people across the world.

    "He once said, 'It would not be much of a universe if it wasn't home to the people you love.' We will miss him forever," they said.

    As smart as he was, he didn't know what he didn't know.

    Deathbed conversions still happen.

    I think they did quite well to get intelligible (?) speech from a twitching eyelid or whatever he had left.

    I guess he finally found out how the universe was really created.

    I pray that He came to know Jesus as his Lord and Savior. It makes me incredibly sad for anyone to die without Him.
    I once was blind but now I see!...
    Acts 9:11 The Lord told him, “Go to the house of Judas on Straight Street and ask for a man from Tarsus named Saul, for he is praying. 12 In a vision he has seen a man named Ananias come and place his hands on him to restore his sight.”

    That was my first thought, and yet, I'm not sure atheists go straight to hell.

    Nonetheless, he sure worked hard to convince other people that God is a myth.

    Hmmm

    My late husband (who died by his own hand) was a devoted atheist. He was also an extraordinary genius (180+ IQ), and basically, he worshiped himself. Seriously.

    To have such an intellect is such a gift from God, and I can not understand why these brilliant people devote so much energy to hating organized religion.

    My thoughts exactly! Believer or not, I am glad he is no longer suffering in that severely disabled body.

    It does not take a genius to have fanciful flights of science fiction. A last moment conviction in Jesus would it fact be his best accomplish.

    Apparently he also died on the 300th anniversary of Newtons death as well.

    Atheist spend an awful lot of time talking about GOD. They always have to convince themselves and others that there is nothing else but you. Seems like a genius would have better things to do with their time but I think their souls will not let them.

    Actually, pretty much. Since you obviously haven't followed events surrounding him, last year he solicited for (and I'm sure hired) experts in the fields related to handicapped communication, in order to develop new technology. Of course, where that will go now is anyone's guess since he passed.

    The one who I'll shed no tear over his passing is Neil deGrasse Tyson, who took over Cosmos when it was resurrected. That f'er is militantly anti-theist.

    If he was a smart as most people said he was, then no one really knows if he was smart at all.

    Much of Stephen's early work that placed him on the intellectual map has been dis-proven, and even Hawking's himself changed his opinions on several of his theories. Just like many earlier scientist that were considered ground breaking, time and advancements in knowledge makes fools of us all. Actually, most espoused, taught and early dogmatic theories are proven wrong and change over the centuries, and it is the rarer few that are proven correct.

    Often, I am amazed at whose work and theories are promoted as "genius" and whose are dismissed by the "intellectual" majority even though they are later proven correct. For a quick example, man-made global warming comes to mind.

    No doubt Hawking was a thinker, but he was wrong on many topics.

    You are right. He simply doesn't exist anymore in any way shape or form.
    He and most atheists pretty much agree that when we die, we just cease to exist, in the same way as how we didn't exist before we were born.
    The shortness and finality of life is one reason most atheists hold life so precious and dear.
    Intellectual honesty and integrity about our best understanding of science, is the reason atheists don't try to convince ourselves that among all lifeforms, we will somehow live forever.

    Don't feel sorry for Stephen Hawking. He lived a relatively full life in his mind. When you think about it, that's where we all live our lives.

    Stephen Hawking was a brilliant physicist. Maybe for a short time, the best in the world. There are other physicists just as brilliant, but none of them became such a celebrity, because none of them were paralyzed and in a wheelchair most of their lives. To be truthful, Hawking's illness did a lot to endear him to the public and make him the celebrity he became. Without his illness he would have been another of a dozen prominent theoretical physicists that the average man in the street never hears about.
    His memory will live on, and his name will be in science textbooks a hundred years from now.

    Whatever that spiritual energy was that was Stephen Hawking is floating somewhere around the universe going....."Damn! I got it all wrong!"

    Payback.......God gets the last laugh.
    We have done so much, with so little, for so long....We can now do anything, with nothing, forever.
