Stephen Hawking Wrote a Popular Book
About Physics and Spent the Rest of His
Life Crusading for Awful Causes

Washington Free Beacon, by Noah Pollak

"I have received a number of letters from Palestinian academics," Stephen Hawking said in his declaration of support for the BDS movement. "They are unanimous that I should respect the boycott. In view of this, I must withdraw from the conference." The conference was in 2013, in Jerusalem, and hosted by Shimon Peres, an Israeli leader who spent his career as an indefatigable advocate of peace. It didn´t matter. Hawking joined the BDS movement because he never met a fashionable far-left cause he didn´t like, and Israel-bashing was one of his favorites. In 2009, when Israel counterattacked after four years of Hamas

One can perhaps forgive Hawking his radical-left views. We can assume that he didn´t get out much, and that during his life he probably rubbed elbows with few individuals outside the academic quagmire that was his entire world. When you combine his limited life-experience with being the lifelong recipient of taxpayer largess and having been on the receiving end of a disease that made Job´s trials look like a stroll through Eden, his nasty leftist, atheistic side become a bit more understandable, though this world-view crippled this poor man´s soul as surely as his disease crippled his body.

I may be excused for not worshiping Stephen Hawking.

"I fear evolution has inbuilt greed and aggression to the human genome," he recently sermonized... The best hope for the survival of the human race might be independent colonies in space." If greed and aggression are inherent to "the human genome," why would space colonies populated by humans have any fewer problems than human societies on Earth? He never says. But his goal wasn´t to say something serious. It was to tell us that we´re all backwards and stupid, unlike Stephen Hawking.

Hawking denies the existence of God but God‘s word tells us that sins such as greed and aggression are built-in because of the fall of mankind. Hawking cannot have it both ways. The Bible was here before Hawking was.

The book may have been popular in terms of sales, but it utterly failed in promoting understanding of complex subjects for the layman. IMO it was written by a graduate assistant who pasted stuff together in a slapdash fashion and it just ended up unread on the coffee table.

I always enjoyed watching documentaries about Stephan Hawking and his brilliant mind. They told about him becoming deathly ill and had to be rushed to the hospital where he laid in a coma but they said his brain brain was going full steam ahead working on the mysteries of the cosmos. I thought that was fascinating. According to scientists the earth has been here for billions of years but according to Mr. Hawking it will be uninhabitable in 200 years. To me that is right up there with the global warming nonsense put forward by the esteemed scientist Al Gore.

Hawking got a 50 year reprieve on a death sentence and apparently still never thought about where he would

#6 is probably correct.
In addition, any of his predictions could have been uttered by Stan Lee, and probably were.
Again, his graduate assistant said he could read Hawking´s twitching of his left eye, and maker sense of it.
That was nonsense. Notice how they always posed Hawking with his grad assistant our of the picture. The grad assistant had to be up close to Hawking´s face to read the twitches.
Finally, Hawking was known for his black hole analysis, which he finally admitted he was wrong.

How is it that when someone excels in a particular field some people are willing to follow them to the ends of the earth in completely unrelated fields?

You´d think smarts might cross over but I learned at about 13 years of age that is not necessarily the case. I had an interesting experience with a research scientist, PHD in Physics involving a little matching of wits along with the local representatives of law and order. Also learned that the youth officer was dumb as a door knob but that´a another matter.

I´ve never understood the fascination with Hawking and all his weird predictions -- predictions that none of us will be able to verify b/c they are too far off in the future.

Actually, the one thing that has fascinated me is how long he managed to live with ALS.

The time to point out all the flaws of most people is at least two weeks after they pass away. I think it is bad form to bring up even legitimate critiques before a person´s funeral has taken place. As a Christian I want to listen to Paul who says "we should morn with those who morn".

What works me up is how so many critics of Billy Graham took to the various forms of the Internet on the day he died and posted the most hate fill celebrations of his death. I remember Christopher Hitchens doing the same thing when Jerry Fawell died.

Even if you totally despised Stephen Hawking, Bill Graham or Jerry Fawell, it is fully lacking in dignity to dance on someone´s grave. (However I can see an exception for kings, presidents or dictators who rule over people).

I know most of the goofy causes Hawking lent his name too would not make sense to me. Just let some time go by before unloading on the guy. But I suppose I grew up in a different era.

I never was impressed with the braininess, of Hawking and his politics. Maybe his health issues and his study of things most lay people don´t think about, ponder, made him special.
He was guessing and a guess is just a guess. Hawking could fill a chalk board and at the end of the day erase it all because he disproved his own theory.
One thing for sure he is an expert on black hole theory because he just entered it.

Just say those magic Leftwing Lunatic sounding bromides and there´s a certain type of woman who will show up and bend to your every desire.

I understand he even made a few bucks off the transactions ~ so much, in fact, that Parliament voted to give him an exception to the tax laws so he could keep the money he earned.

Have learned the past couple of days that it´s a ´cardinal sin´ to criticize Hawking in any way - whatever the subject or reasoning behind it. Was he a Saint? Don´t believe so. Because he was severely handicapped and, in spite of it, led a productive life doesn´t mean he could do no wrong and that the rest of us ´must accept as truth´ every theory he had.

Every time Hawking issued a statement on a world issue, I disagreed with it. I am unable to understand his contributions to physics. I agree completely with Mr. Pollak´s description of Mr. Hawking as a world class scold whose words could not be challenged thanks to the PC powers that control Western media.

FTA: One of the traditional checks in human societies on "inbuilt greed and aggression" is religion—and so one might have thought Hawking would say something nice about western religious observance, which tends to promote humility and respect for life. Of course not: "The scientific account is complete. Theology is unnecessary," he sniffed. The historic account shows that the great secular "scientific" political movements—Communism and Naziism—were also the most aggressive and murderous.

Hawking was a brilliant fool, reminiscent of Flannery O´Connor´s Hulga Hopewell (who had "many degrees") in "Good Country People," who had her prosthetic leg stolen by a phony door to door Bible salesman. Hawking is a bit like the phony Bible salesman but more like Hulga, who thought she was smart, but wasn´t.

The left canonized this blow hard because "they" said he was brilliant! Only problem is, quite a bit of his work has now been proven wrong! Google his mistakes and see the list.

Sorry, but I never listen to college professors who step outside of their field. Smart in one area almost never transfers over to others.

The fact Hawking was so anti-God made him a sweetheart to the Left and gave them cover. Now he knows more than he probably ever wanted to!

Baltimore Files Climate Lawsuit Against

Officials with the City of Baltimore announced a lawsuit Friday against major oil producers such as Exxon, BP, and Shell Oil, claiming the companies caused damages by contributing to global climate change.

I am a strong advocate for holding liberals to the same rules they hold everyone else to.

While it is satisfying to claim one of theirs after they claim, or try to claim, one of ours, it’s a sad game that ends with everyone losing. This game is nothing new, but it has gotten

Something has been going on with Robert Mueller´s investigation of people thought to have played significant roles in the Trump-Russia affair. The special counsel, assigned to investigate "any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Trump," has been farming out seemingly important parts of the investigation to offices outside his own. In April, Mueller referred an investigation of close Trump associate Michael Cohen to federal prosecutors in New York. This month, the U.S. attorney in Washington — not Mueller — indicted Maria Butina on charges of being an unregistered Russian agent. And also

SANTA BARBARA, Calif — From Malibu to Santa Cruz, wealthy people are blocking access to California’s publicly owned beaches. And no group has fought the public longer than the gated community of Hollister Ranch, about 130 miles north of Los Angeles.

Are you tired of all the winning yet? If you are a conservative who has followed the trajectory of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), you might be getting to that point. From its inception, the CFPB has been a big government liberal’s dream: no Congressional oversight, limitless investigative authority, and a leadership succession plan that seemed more feudal than democratic. Indeed, when CFPB Director Richard Cordray resigned in November 2017, the Left claimed he, not President Donald Trump, had the authority to appoint his successor. According to them, Deputy Director Leandra English was Cordray’s rightful heiress. So when the President appointed Mick

BERLIN — Nazi comparisons have become such frequent occurrences almost anywhere in the world that they rarely draw attention these days. But in Adolf Hitler´s birth country, Austria, they usually still strike a nerve whenever they come up. They certainly did so this week, after Jewish organizations criticized the far-right Freedom Party of Austria (FPÖ), the ruling coalition party in the state of Lower Austria, over pursuing a proposal that would require Jews to register with the government if they seek to purchase kosher meat. The same rules would apply to Muslims. “This constitutes an attack on Jewish and Muslim life,” the

Obama wasn´t only wrong in understanding where the electorate was in 2016 but was frequently wrong throughout his presidency.

The BLM manages 248.3 million acres of public land, more than any other agency, according to a March 2017 report by the Congressional Research Service. Today, @Interior confirmed that they are planning to move the BLM HQ west. This is great news since 99% of the land that the BLM manages is located

CLEARWATER — Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri announced Friday that his agency will not arrest a man deputies say shot and killed another man during an argument over a handicap parking space. The incident falls under Florida’s self-defense law known as "stand your ground," the sheriff said during a news conference. The law gives immunity to those in fear of their lives who use force to defend themselves. The shooting "is within the bookends of ‘stand your ground’ and within the bookends of force being justified," the sheriff said, later adding, "I’m not saying I agree with it, but I don’t make

In the past few days, President Trump has given at least some Republicans reason to express displeasure over his relationship with Russia. First he performed a pathetic ritual of subservience before Vladimir Putin, standing beside the Russian leader — after a private meeting between the two, which no aides were permitted to attend — and dismissing the copious evidence of a Russian attack on the 2016 election in deference to Putin’s word. Then we learned that Putin had suggested that we make Americans available to the Kremlin for questioning, including Michael McFaul, the former U.S. ambassador to Russia, in exchange

A research group in New Jersey has taken a fresh look at postelection polling data and concluded that the number of noncitizens voting illegally in U.S. elections is likely far greater than previous estimates. As many as 5.7 million noncitizens may have voted in the 2008 election, which put Barack Obama in the White House. The research organization Just Facts, a widely cited, independent think tank led by self-described conservatives and libertarians, revealed its number-crunching in a report on national immigration. Just Facts President James D. Agresti and his team looked at data from an extensive Harvard/YouGov study that every

Last Friday, Maine Democrat Zak Ringelstein wasn’t ready to consider himself a formal member of the Democratic Socialists of America, even if he appreciated the organization’s values and endorsement in his bid to become a United States senator. Three days later, he told The Associated Press that was ready to become the only major-party Senate candidate in the nation to be a dues-paying democratic socialist. The swift evolution is latest evidence of a nationwide surge in the strength and popularity of an organization that, until recently, operated on the fringes of the liberal movement’s farthest left flank. But as Donald

President Donald Trump demanded on Friday that the ´$40,000,000 commissioner´ of the NFL suspend players for a whole season if they kneel during national anthem more than once. In a rehash of last year´s controversy, the President took to Twitter to blast NFL commissioner Roger Godell for not doing enough to stem the tide of players protesting racial inequality in America. ´The NFL National Anthem Debate is alive and well again - can´t believe it!,´ Trump wrote in the tweet. ´Isn´t it in contract that players must stand at attention, hand on heart? The $40,000,000 Commissioner must now make a stand.

SANTA BARBARA, Calif — From Malibu to Santa Cruz, wealthy people are blocking access to California’s publicly owned beaches. And no group has fought the public longer than the gated community of Hollister Ranch, about 130 miles north of Los Angeles. For more than 36 years, residents there have spent millions of dollars on lawyers and lobbyists to bar the hoi polloi from an 8.5-mile-long beach adorned with several coves. In May, after more than four years of litigation over public access to the beach, a settlement was announced between the ranch cooperative, on one side, and the California Coastal Commission

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told senior Republicans that he will schedule Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote on a date just before the November elections if Democrats demand access to the full scope of records the judge produced in the George W. Bush administration. Democrats are leveraging the access dispute to slow Kavanaugh’s nomination, as it is one of the few mechanisms they have to delay progress on the appointment. Politico reports that McConnell believes scheduling a confirmation vote in immediate proximity to the midterm elections will exacerbate political pressure on embattled Democrats from red states to support Kavanaugh. “To

If President Trump wants to shut down the critics of his performance this week in Helsinki and strengthen U.S. national security, he can do so with one bold move: Announce he is moving out most U.S. forces currently stationed in Germany and sending them to Poland. The Polish government recently presented Trump with a formal proposal to move U.S. troops from Stuttgart, Germany, to a new permanent U.S. military base in Poland. Trump should take up Warsaw on this offer. Moving U.S. troops to Poland would a bold, historic decision on par with Trump´s decision to move the U.S. Embassy
