Stephen Hawking’s dark and dangerous philosophical assumptions

Smarts in one area doesn’t make him an expert in all areas. Perhaps CBS News would like to interview me on string theory? Of course Mr Hawking and many others might object that I wasn’t exactly the best “go-to guy” on this topic. And that would be true. Asking Mr. Hawking to opine on heavenly matters and the psychological makeup of believers is in the same vein as trotting out Hollywood stars to testify before congress as “experts” on global warming, or some other highly technical matter. Mr Hawking’s opinion on believers or the afterlife is of no more value than anyone else. He is entitled to his opinions on this matter, but it doesn’t deserve to be in headlines and is no more true because he is smart in other areas.

Further, I hope you will note a VERY DARK philosophical assumption he makes at the end of the article. Beware, for he is an influential man.

    you one time say that a space ship that thavels near lighr speed can see the future… that would be impossible because things in space exist where light never hit it. then we have those voids. in time what ever there is there now anywhere has been there already or still is. light speed is just that… speed. that travels great distance in a shorter time. nothing more. your theory is saying that light speed creates what is not there yet.
