HELLO! i’d rather stephen lived and bill nye didn’t, you hear me bill? you bastard!
oh, now i got it, “the hawking dead”
you’re next bill nye! please be next.
a professed genius in his younger years … but, probably due to his debilitations, a very bitter person in his latter days
all the same … he might be missed
… might be ….
At first I thought Steve Howe died.
You know, I have a little regret that people talked me out of our RIP posts that were a little in bad taste.
Back in the old days I would put Stephen Hawking dead, and then run a picture of Steve Howe.
When people alerted me that I put up the wrong picture I would apologize and put up a picture of Rick Wakeman.
Some people loved it.
Others absolutely hated it.
I loved those BFH obituaries!
Death is a heavy thing. Humor helps one deal with it better.
May God embrace him. Unfortunately, in life the reverse was not professed.
To live that long in that shell of a body………
Was it karma?
Sheldon Cooper is devastated and inconsolable.
He was great on the Simpsons. That was his highest achievement.
Too many people asking too many questions about version 2.0. Time to pull the plug.
Absolutely right Khalid. There’s no way that is same guy. Also no one lives that long with that disease. Lots more questions are getting asked about lots of things. That’s why NASA is going to be dead soon too. More and more people are waking up.
Somebody must have been getting close to exposing the Animatronic Hawking hoax. Finally had to pull the plug.
He was great as Captain Pike in Star Trek.
He said there is no God because the universe is so large. Sad… I believe God is large enough to create as many universes as He wants.
I feel bad that I don’t care.
He denounced God and everything to do with God. He won’t be embraced by God. He pushed false idols.
He made less and less sense as he grew older and the disease ravaged him. As that illness progressed he was asked to comment more and more frequently by the press and willingly babbled nonsense to their approval.
Exactly the same thing is happening with Nancy Pelosi.
Genesis is History. Mr. Hawking was no more than a sophisticated guesser. God had his arms out the whole time Stephen pushed him away. Sad.
It’s one thing to be an atheist, to be an asshole atheist, deplorable.
If you’re an atheist, why do you feel it’s your ‘god given’ right to criticize those who believe in a higher power?
You would think a cosmologist would be open to others interpretation of our universe. You can be right, without being a jerk about it.
I smile and pat on their heads the flat earthers I come across.
Well,,, bye, it took long enough.
I will trade 10 Hawkings for one Sagan.
“An atheist is someone who is certain that God does not exist, someone who has compelling evidence against the existence of God. I know of no such compelling evidence. Because God can be relegated to remote times and places and to ultimate causes, we would have to know a great deal more about the universe than we do now to be sure that no such God exists. To be certain of the existence of God and to be certain of the nonexistence of God seem to me to be the confident extremes in a subject so riddled with doubt and uncertainty as to inspire very little confidence indeed.” – Carl Sagan
If (I say “if” because we’ll never know what happens in a person’s heart) he accepted Jesus Christ as his savior, he is in heaven. If he continued denying God, he isn’t. God will never force anyone who negated and despised Him to spend eternity with Him. Is that simple.
DIDN’T know Jesus. 🙁 That’s a very sad legacy.
Geeky nerds who worshiped Hawking need not worry. He will be perserved as an AI. Fitting for a Godless elite who feared a world ruled by robots.
Somebody died but it wasn’t Hawking.
The average survival time for ALS is four years. When Hawking was first diagnosed in 1963, doctors gave him two years to live. And yet here we are, 52 years later and counting. Should you believe it? Well, no. Like Becker, it appears the real Hawking did beat the odds and live for about 20 years. But at some point he was replaced. I have no proof he died, but I assume that is why they replaced him. He was a very useful public relations entity for physics, and they didn’t want to lose him.
I always thought he looked really bad for his age.

Who will play the role in the movie to be made for this Christmas season?
Hollywood cares (snark)
^^^^ Vietvet, LOL!
There’s not much to be shocked about with Mr. Hawkings, his death like everyone on earth is bound to happen. Some sooner and some later, we all have an appointment with death and Mr. Hawkings met his. He lived way beyond his time, not many with ALS lived longer with the disease than Mr. Hawkings. I wonder if he donated his body to science? IMHO, that would be the biggest gift he could give to mankind.
Stephen Hawking said “There is no god.”
God said “There is no Stephen Hawking.”
I guess we all know who had the last word.
Most determined adulterer ever.
Some of the commenters here might be surprised to read this quote from Stephen Hawking:
(On why the universe exists)
“If we find the answer to that, it would be the ultimate triumph of human reason — for then we would know the mind of God.”
