Can't stand the pretentious idiot - comes from Cambridge, but speaks with an American accent... :twisted:
That's cos he was originally from Oxford..... trust a reggie to get his blue-brick universities mixed up! :roll:

Hawking has fought to survive and retained his intellectual credibility - even if I happen to disagree with some of his ideas. He should be commended for his courage in taking on his illness and pursuing his intellectual destiny and provoking much discussion about his cosmological ideas. Controversy is, after all, a great stimulant of debate and the refashioning or deconstruction of existing ideas.

Unfortunately an early death is the norm for those born with the disability the Steven hawking has.
However he has left his mark in history which is an incredible achievement even for the able bodied.
Hope he recovers but if not hope he doesn't suffer.

However I do find all the above comments very amusing and look foreward to reading more gems :p

I think the best treatment is the Mikado's cure for all ills: a short, sharp, shock. Behold the Lord High Executioner and his cutlass! :twisted:

After decapitation he should think more clearly.

I don't think you actually get to read or hear of Prof Hawkins' idea's to be fair, I'd be interested to know which of his theories you disagree with though?

It's worth writing him a letter (once he has recovered) you'll get a reply, I did.

His contribution to physics (which is enormous) apart, what a stunning example to everyone not to write off people because they appear to be disabled.
