Re: Critiquing the life of Stephen Hawking

I've read the Brief history of time. I also have an audiobook called Grand design. I wiped out my device, only this book is remaining, but never had the time to listening it. Now it's too late... :cry: I also have planet earth 2, last movie of Sir David Attenborogh. I'm going to watch it, before......

Re: Critiquing the life of Stephen Hawking

It's depressing to see misunderstood science being used to make money... Mike So you are a scientist, please let me know what happened before big bang. I'm really curious about this topic. I've no idea. It's not my area. As far as I know, there are various possible models, but working out how to te...

Re: Critiquing the life of Stephen Hawking

... I would welcome any one who knows quantum physics to correct my example. I have often wondered did I understand what those guys were trying to sell correctly? Do not read about it .. I repeat it is seductive, steaming pile of BS (not quantum mechanics or mysticism but quantum mysticism). Sounds...

Re: Critiquing the life of Stephen Hawking

onceruturner, I think you are using the wrong concept of "information". In physics they are not using it to mean something that is held in the mind....in physics it means more like IF you knew everything about a particle and its environment then that information is enough to determing then entire h...

Re: Critiquing the life of Stephen Hawking

How unfortunate that someone would criticize another for not holding a Buddhist belief system but yet does not follow them himself. 252. Easily seen is the fault of others, but one's own fault is difficult to see. Like chaff one winnows another's faults, but hides one's own, even as a crafty fowler...

Re: Critiquing the life of Stephen Hawking

Susskind defeated the theory of Hawking, he said information is not lost in black holes. Hawking admitted, that he was wrong. However I believe Hawking was right, I fly into a black hole,  spaghettified by gravity, all my atoms torn apart into particles, still no information is lost. That makes no s...

Re: Critiquing the life of Stephen Hawking

i think there's room for quantum physics to be compared to buddhism (pm for book on this) but it's too easy to draw flawed/false conclusions with stuff like black holes, & i've thought about the concept a whole lot so i understand the urge Yes, most of what I've seen attempting to connect physics a...

Re: Critiquing the life of Stephen Hawking

Y'all who are defending him know the Buddha said the majority of humans are reborn in the hell realms right? His legendary intelligence is well known, IMO great minds open the opportunity for the rest of us, to understand Buddha's holy way better. E.g black holes destroy matter, this is the ultimat...

Re: Critiquing the life of Stephen Hawking

To me that just says he was more keen on philosophy than science which is even more concerning. Im sorry, I had to mark you as a "foe", your messages are no longer displayed to me. I never done this before. I apologize. :namaste: why would you apologize? i don't care. I'm really sorry about my mist...

Re: RIP Stephen Hawking

for example he says that this is the only universe, there was nothing before the big bang, there was no time before the big bang. really? :shock: it sounds really bizarre. How something can arise from a nothingness? This is really interesting. I'm curious about this topic. There are some theory abo...

Re: Critiquing the life of Stephen Hawking

This thread is deader than dead.
