    This man has bizarrely lasted much, much longer than he probably should have by now... still he is one of the most brilliant minds (It wouldn't be adequate to say he has one of the most brilliant minds because a mind is really all he is...) on this Earth and it'd be a tragedy to see him die now. I wish him luck...

    Your hope is but the dream of a waking man - just like Hawking's body of theories.

    Well, modern technology helped him out-survive his doctor's predictions by about 40 years so far. Hopefully he can hold on to a few more, at the very least. Seriously, the world of physics needs the man. The things his books taught me are probably some of the reasons I chose to be a physics student in the first place. It would be one helluva shame if he didn't even get to see the LHC light up for real in September.

    Good luck, Dr. Hawking.

    This is sad. It'll be a big shame when we finally loose such a great mind. Here's hoping he can pull through for a while longer.

    You know, I think it's time someone came out and admitted that the only reason anybody agrees with any of his nutty ideas is just because we're all afraid to be mean to a handicapped guy.

    He is a very important person in the history of science of these last decades, AND he is handicapped, not BECAUSE he is handicapped. What you just said is perfectly stupid and out of place.

    He is a very important person in the degeneration of science from an empirical, fact-and-observation-based study into a fancyfree Mathamagic rave party. And if any of you bothered reading dissenting theories which contradict his, that wouldn't come as such a big shock to you.

    Sobriquet, don't ever talk to girls that way, man.
    Those kind of cheap shots are unclassy and pointless.

    Please leave the man with who i'm living out of your shitty conversations, you will make me a great pleasure.
    And i don't want to argue with you, as long as the "dissenting theorie" you came with in first place was a totally stupid attack on his condition, more than on his mind it self.

    Yes, the man who helped define our modern definition of time and space is only liked because we're afraid to be mean to a handicapped man.

    Y'know, even IF many of his theories were wrong that doesn't mean that he wasn't an important part of the scientific community. The majority of Freud's theories were dead wrong but he's still remembered as an iconic figure to the psychological world

    And as far as being mean to the handicapped guy, I've got a ton of christopher reeves jokes

    I have read other theories, and no, he doesn't really seem like a nut comparatively. All theories in the extreme limits of physics come across as mathematical lunacy because it's pretty much the only way to describe the observations. Hawking's theories are relatively down-to-earth compared to string theory and the like, because of how few extra dimensions and particles they assume the existence of. True, everyone is wrong every now and then, but he is about as consistently correct as anyone. Also, to the best of my knowledge, most of his theories concerning black holes don't even have any competition because people can't find any better explanations, and have even been backed up by observations since their creation.

    Besides, there's more to Hawking than just his theories. Even if every one of them was completely wrong, he is still partially responsible for bringing complex physics to the masses with books like "A Brief History of Time" (and the recent "A Briefer History of Time", for people that didn't quite understand the first one). I'd say that in itself is a pretty noteworthy achievement.

    There are plenty of physicists who disagree with Hawking's theories.

    I'm afraid A. Sobriquet won't be able to come out and play for a month or so. Hopefully by then he'll have gotten over being a massive tool.

    Don't know the latest on Hawking's condition but I lost a lot of respect for the man after I read a quote of his in the papers that went something like this "the only hope I can see for the future of humankind is to colonize other planets" .... basically sayin that he sees no hope for us in the future on this one. Couldn't believe that a mind who is so widely known and regarded all over the world could send out such a negative comment ... but ya ... the guy has done some good work, come out with some new ideas so wish him the best. Really would be a shame if he didn't see the LHC launch as someone already said.

    @mock ... that jealousy pic was just hilarious
