Brilliant mind! I didn't necessarily agree with him on there being no room for God when it comes to science (that's my own beliefs), but aside from that, well respected mind. Makes me want to go back and read every Science textbook that I can get my hands on.

I will disagree with Hawking on some issues.

Hawking was a brilliant man who dedicated himself in science. He will be missed.

Today is also Einstein's birthday.

And Hawking was born on January 8th, 1942, three hundred years to day Galileo Galilei died in 1642. Weird!

Hawking at one point stated time will go backwards when the universe will collapse!
I disagreed with some 90% of what he said, but heck, I dont have a Ph.D., just a mind full of gubleygoog.

He was Stephen - Stephan is a continental European spelling. But yes, RIP.

He also died the same day Einstein was born!

These two men have contributed so much in science and both should be equally celebrated!
