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.

#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!

Norm Macdonald, in addition to being the best Weekend Update anchor ever, is also a keen student of human nature.

President Trump, apparently, is open to rejoining the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Yes, that TPP, the same multilateral trade deal that Trump savaged during the 2016 presidential campaign and withdrew the United States from in the early days of his administration. Last week, during a meeting with farm-state lawmakers, the president said his administration would revisit the deal and instructed advisers to look into the matter. Of course, it’s hard to know whether to take the overture seriously. Tuesday night, Trump threw cold water on the idea via Twitter, expressing a preference for bilateral trade deals.

In a victory for the longstanding Wall Street "Charging Bull" statute, New York City Hall announced the "Fearless Girl" statue will soon move to a new location three blocks away. "Fearless Girl" was commissioned by the investment firm State Street Global Advisors to advertise an index fund. In March 2017, it was placed in front of the iconic bull statute, a piece of guerrilla art celebrating American entrepreneurship created by Italian immigrant and Free Beacon Man of the Year Arturo Di Modica. The statute immediately went viral as a feminist icon, with the bull being recast as a symbol of the patriarchy.

Twenty-five years ago today, FBI tanks smashed into the ramshackle home of the Branch Davidians outside Waco, Texas. After the FBI collapsed much of the building atop the residents, a fire erupted and 76 corpses were dug out of the rubble. Unfortunately, the American political system and media have never faced the lessons from that tragic 1993 day. Fifty-one days before the FBI final assault, scores of federal Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms agents launched an attack on the Davidians’ home spurred by allegations that they had converted semi-automatic rifles to full-automatic capacity. The ATF’s lead investigator had previously rejected an offer

Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently told the White House he might have to leave his job if President Trump fired his deputy, Rod J. Rosenstein, who oversees the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to people familiar with the exchange. Sessions made his position known in a phone call to White House counsel Donald McGahn last weekend, as Trump’s fury at Rosenstein peaked after the deputy attorney general approved the FBI’s raid April 9 on the president’s personal attorney Michael Cohen.

The past 12 hours brought two very big revelations involving former FBI director James B. Comey, President Trump and the Russia investigation, and they must be looked at side by side to fully grasp their collective importance. Comey’s memos of his conversations with Trump have leaked in full. This came after Republicans threatened to subpoena them from Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, leading him to release them to Congress. Comey confirmed to Rachel Maddow that before getting fired, he ordered an internal investigation into whether Trump surrogate Rudy Giuliani had been privately tipped off by people in the FBI two weeks

Roger Stone, a former adviser to President Trump, lost an invitation to speak at a Florida Republican group´s annual dinner due to negative remarks he made about former first lady Barbara Bush. The Okaloosa Republican Executive Committee "uninvited" Stone over comments he made to the right-wing conspiratorial website InfoWars about Bush, who died Tuesday. "I understand I´m going to take a lot of crap for speaking the truth about Barbara Bush," Stone said in an interview with InfoWars host Alex Jones. "She was a mean-spirited, vindictive drunk.

“No one in modern politics, male or female, has had to withstand more indignities, setbacks and cynicism. She developed protective armor that made the real Hillary Clinton an enigma.
