Is anyone else impressed that he typed out his own responses, one letter at a time? I type between 40 to 50 words per minute and that is with slowing down over the years! I am sure I would not have the patience! Seriously though, that for some reason seriously made my mouth drop
I will teach how to do all this here and now and in 24 hours of checking you will believe and know the truth. theoretically you have all got it wrong you run so fast at trying to invent new understandings of physics that you fail to comprehend simple realities, if indeed time is slower at the black hole whilst the earth moves forward into the future then the black hole "IS" in the past based on your only silly logic, I invented free energy at nuclear level so i assure i am far smarter than Hawking ever was, since then i did holograms including the light saber see through solar panels and many other items you may never see unless china chooses to make them available to you as the west will not (am currently going to sell a new machine to them that will run continents a different design and those things were thrown in with the 100m price tag) Ok back to your theory, gravity dos not control time it is time, Gravitational fields can be generated in many ways, anti-gravity for instance is just gravity and the manipulation of it, ok basic physics can you launch a rocket using gravity? yes gravity is just gravity it is a field like a magnetic field but not magnetic in nature (as in what we call magnets.) so two field can both attract and repel ok do you think I could take a house and launch it off the ground and flip it over?? Easily, but before we go further you have never heard of me because my inventions will end/change the world as you know it, many morons always say if these things worked people would patent them and be rich, firstly each world patent cost over 200,000 to lodge to be a world patent and many designs have multiple patents, secondly when it comes to energy take Australia it went from 105 USD to 62 Cents USD in 12 weeks in 2012 just from china cutting iron ore purchases now imagine no coal or oil or LNG or uranium all gone overnight from the stock exchange, now you see the instant collapse of your world and why they do not want it, I will attach a link to the small nuclear level free energy design complete with instructions on the end of this post so you can see I am who I say i am and any year 12 student can understand the basic easy mechanics of the machine, physics not required.(my house was offered for 3 years to anyone who could find a flaw last month the views after 3 years started multiplying by 100 times and Youtube shutdown the channel 3days ago citing rules but would not give a specific rule, within an hour I contacted the Chinese government and offered all my designs to them) Ok so back to gravitational time travel and just travel in space. Man has jumped too far past understanding simple basic physics of which you know little studying quantum physics when I built nuke level free energy with bicycle level engineering. Ok so anti gravity and flipping the house, ok take flat magnet and smash it what happens?? The pieces all flip because there are now many fields not just one. So can you control fields is the first question? Yes all fields gravity among them, ok so basic anti flip physics control the field, now take the flat magnet and place it on a 2 inch coper plate and an opposing magnet under it will simply jump to levitation and not fly off like on a table. Ok next step understand full control, take a beach ball and place it above the outlet of a vacuum cleaner with a pipe and it will float in space, we have all seen this again just simple physics, now picture in your head those videos of speakers under glass making everything above them jump from sound waves, now we are going to mix the beach ball and sound waves by speeding up the sound waves to very fast pulses so the items cannot land on the table. Now for anti gravity using sound with control. Did you ever see a ball fountain? With the sprays interlocking from the ends of the sticks protruding from the centre, this is what we are doing in reverse, the sound waves each send from the end of the sticks from the outer of a lager ball inward so a steel ball or ceramic ball is now being suspended equally like fluid dynamics in the centre of the larger sound ball that you can see through as they are only sticks emitting sound. The effect is the same as the air flow equally moving around the ball keeping it suspended, with one exception, with the beach ball the air flow continues on so the control is limited, in this instance the control is total. Now reverse the position of the sound emitters into the smaller ball, the effect is identical except the craft now has control, not the station so I have taught one form of anti-gravity that you can now play with and aside from being able to use magnetic fields to do the same thing to launch a space craft, you can now have real hover boards. Yes there are many ways to beat gravity and as I said you have missed 90 percent of basic physics and are not ready for colliders, you fail to comprehend basic physics so have no concept of what the collider will do in a few years from now. Take a step back a learn you have a billion new better world prospects and space travel waiting in base physics that will not annihilate you planet. Everything you will ever need or want exists in basic physics. So you will need to cut and past this somewhere and copy the video as it will likely be removed as well, but this will show you I really did beat all scientist that ever lived including Hawking. Please do not try to reply to me on the thread as once posted I do not rad responses. Simply take what I have given you and move forward you economy will collapse briefly as china takes control of world energy with the continent level machine, but I will give them an actual EM drive for space travel and yes it works like fluid dynamics not propulsion thrust thrust only works against resistances not space, like satellites are not propelled forward by their onboard thrusters simply up and down to keep them in orbit pushing against the gravity of the planet, for thust is like throwing a ball into deep space it keeps going as does thrust without moving the craft, satellites are launched with resistance behind the to get to speed and never lose speed except to gravity fall, so thrusters unless pointed at a grav field wont work you can only tack like a yacht or slingshot not fly. I am The Mighty Quinn and here is my proof, un beaten and without flaw. http://www.metacafe.com/watch/11717170/free-energy-at-nuclear-power-station-level-unbeaten-in-physics/
Many of you may be wondering why china? If you lied in a court or withheld the truth to ruin Stephen Hawkings reputation you have taken his life, by keeping the fact I could and can do what no hundred combined think tanks could ever do a secret, the US government and its allies took my life to protect their energy based economies, I should have been the person who defied physics and saved mankind. So this is my payback to take your world as you who voted them in and your governments stole my life, I now steal your lives for the future betterment of mankind over your economy and Iphone toy culture.
I don't know some people says Stephen Hawking is so intelligent but i dont understand why they say like that because according to his theory there is no god and also no fate then how Jesus rose from dead.According to me he is just a Hippocratic
Professing to be wise they became fools.Nothing can create anything.Nothing has no information no knowledge no abilities.The uncaused cause is the creator God.The simple truth you cannot handle http://www.chick.com/reading/tracts/0059/0059_01.asp
You carnt get somthing from nothing I belive in jesus christ here's to all you unbelievers how can you get somthing from nothing when design is all around us every one knows deep down there's a God and his son came to set us free from sin jesus paid the price for the wrong we have done
Karl Hungus God has always been here he doesent live on earth becuse man has sined bye disobaying him the first people Adam and Eve ate from a tree they where told not to eat from they where tempted bye the evel one satern to eat and that's how sin came in to the world we are not ment to die but it's the consequences of sin basically man has disobeyed a holy God the onley way we can get back to him is he sent his son jesus to die on a cross so people would call apon him to be saved now fore the people who have accepted jesus as lord and saviour will spend iternity with him in a new earth this world will pass away and fore those who reject jesus will sadly go to hell God does not want any one to go so he sent jesus to pay our price no one made God he is iternal we don't understand he is three different people sepeate people classes as one the farther, son and holy spirit satern is a fallen angel who disobeyed God he sined first and a third of God's angels chose to follow satern these are the fallen angels the problem is satern wants people to go to he'll with him to the lake of fire this is why he doesent want people to turn to jesus
A LOT of people make the gigantic mistake and believe everything that he says, simply because of his function. I highly recommend a short and small book titled God and Stephen Hawking by John Lennox. Exposing the multiple mistakes that Hawking gets away with.
I genuinely love Stephen Hawking. He seems like a joy to be around and a fun person to have a conversation with. I would like to ask him questions like the favorite memory question instead of silence questions because they seem more interesting to me
WHY TO NEVER TRUST A CREATIONIST Science makes objective claims and must have empirical evidence to verify them.
Religion makes objective claims with no empirical evidence to verify them, claiming one must simply "have faith"
When science is found to be wrong it changes to adapt to the new information, growing further closer to total precise knowledge.
When religion is found to be wrong it denies it, either using rhetoric in attempts to claim it was never wrong, or ignoring the conflicting data entirely. Religion always claims to be in infallible. ALL claims are unfalsifiable.
Science and religion are two completely different and incompatible doctrines. If you believe otherwise you misunderstood at least one of them.
scientists of the world should review the big bang theory because a single big bang cannot create universe.
There must have been millions of big bangs along the way in different degrees of a compass.
Similarly if big bangs were possible, then earth should have been covered completely with igneous rocks and absence of minerals.
So there is some fault with big bang theory.
Hawking is denying multi verse , wtf ok there is no way of saying that there is no end if there is end of expansion there will be an end of time itself so we would not even know , this might have happned infinte times but we wouldn't know the statement of stephen hawking is not 100% tru it's impossible for us to say this , plus there is 11 dimensions (string theory ) so there must me more universes which are contained in the 7 dimension for us , I may be over thinking this but my point is valid
The Riddle for the Day is ? What do Gates, Musk, Trump, Washington
State and Dr. Hawking all have in common? The question is what does the
ripple of waves and their crashes, movies likes Johnny Depp jumping
through the rabbit whole or the ring or lord or the rings etc..... all
of these plus the Simpsons, Will Ferrel, Einstein and Eddy clear to Olaus
Romer SP?lol What do all of these things have to do with Dr. Stephen
Hawking and putting life through a black hole? Answer this and you are
just as smart as him ;) THINK MIB, playing with your marbles, swimming in molten metal in zero gravity :)
It may be a bit of a cliche question, but what caused the big bang?
What I mean is, if nobody really knows what came before the Big Bang *while casting aside the assumption that there was nothing before* then How can anyone, especially Steven Hawking say that there is no God?
God is, according to the Bible and what I've heard Christian's speak of, as well as my own concept of him, Omnipotent. So if God is this almighty entity that is literally capable of anything, then who are we to question whether he was actually there before the big bang? Who are we to question anything he does, if everything he does is right?
These questions are all under the assumption that we are wrong. It may still be "What if" questions, but I'd like for someone to consider the possibility that they are wrong about just about everything they may think is right. I'd like to understand how the minds of other people work outside of my own. I just want to understand, because if I can gain a better understanding of what it is that makes people think the way they do, then maybe it may also help me improve the way I think.
*P.s. Try to stay on topic*
Science is purely observation without religious speculation nothing more. To answer your question there's the Multiverse Theory but it takes just as much faith to believe that than to believe in a god.
There is also the possibility that nothing caused the big bang theory. The Big bang started as 1 particle of matter, And, according to the laws of physics, matter can spontaneously be created from nothing. Thus, the universe itself could have been created from nothing, rendering the argument of who or what created the universe null.
Stephen Hawking: "GOD may exist but science can explain the universe without a need for a creator"
that says a lot about what he thinks. If we assume that he meant what he said 100% then his word are in contradiction.
i would say existence rather than universe since there might be other universes in existence and other things we have yet to discover or even think of. maybe he just picked his words carefully lol, I could agree we might be able to explain the universe without a creator but when we say existence that could make a bit difference in what we have to say about god.
that being said if scientists can explain the existence without a need for a creator then there is 100% no creator. which is impossible as the laws of causality suggest.
OK sir, he is saying indirectly there is no God on the basis of imaginary science and its principles. And you are saying me to prove it.And I believe in God because I think there must be a creator and observing real life activities helped me feel this.And the Quran ( actually advice and instructions by Allah) when I read it, it was related to my real life problems and purposes.
Anyone in this world cannot give any sufficient proof to others to prove anything.If I tell you somethings, it depends upon you, you can take it as sufficient proof or not but except Allah (the Creator) who can direct man intentions and change man heart to believe what Allah want.
Science is only assumption.Scientists make assumptions, change them , modify them and these assumptions work to some extent, some to greater extent and sometimes to a little extent. They say it is a proof that it is the principle of nature .I can say it is not enough to satisfy me then whole proof is nothing to me or take someone else as example.
Mostly,We are indirected by society, by people , by teachers , by parents but not all. we can only find the right path by observing and thinking to very much extent not by any other proof and this is the only way Allah has given to humans.
I cannot prove anything nor anyone in this world on his own.we are nothing.I am not created by myself but Allah has created me .Some are born poor , some are born rich . Who are you going to blame sir... nature.
I believe that this world is nothing but a test and it has no definite goal.And Allah will do justice in the after world(Last day of Judgement).
listen to others ( scientists,people) what they say but observe what they said by imagining it in different maximum possible situations to see what is right to think and do.
We can't compare humans but to a little extent . I only know he is good to me or bad but may be different to others.And it might be due to situations in its life that are not in mine.
He said nowhere because it's an analogy.... When you're talking about cardinal directions, you use 'where'. It's just basic English. There is nowhere south of the south pole just as there is no time before the Big Bang.
Where did the matter come from to create the Big Bang? Nothing? Where did the energy come from? Personally I do not believe man came from rock soup like atheists, and I don't believe we came from Lucy LOL! With that aside, the father of the Big Bang theory was a Catholic Priest, so let's start from there. In fact I wonder how many atheists even know that? Anyways, Where did the matter come from? Where did the energy come from? Can energy or matter come from "nothing"? Can they create themselves? Looking at is scientifically everything in motion was put into motion. A mover! Cause and effect! And all energy comes from a source as does Light , so it's simple really! God said "Let there be Light" and we have an explsion of the universe, a mover, a cause and effect, a source! Atheists hate God so they just say "Nothing". Although some atheists have held PhD's, atheism. Itself is not science at all. It's a theology. it is not scientific in nature and does not come from science. Just as many brilliant scientists and PhD holders have been, and are Theists! In adition, science is not infallible, and has been wrong many times! For people who claim to be so smart (such as atheists) they sure are dumb. They mock people with Faith all while claiming there might be E.T's out there or even some, a after life. We have so many anomalies in this universe it cannot be natural. Science knows very little about the universe itself. Let alone the things in it. Our moon itself is a anomaly! The mathematical odds that we have a satellite that should not be there controlling our tides and life is zero! There's no way on God's green Earth everything in the universe formed and became perfect enough to create intelligent life by random chance and only a complete moron would believe such a thing! God Bless
The question I wanna ask you, my friend, is: Do you REALLY think the God in the bible created the universe? Do you REALLY REALLY think it was Yahveh's work? What makes you believe it wasn't another higher power? Like Tepeu and Gucumatz in the Popol Vuh (which, BTW, avoids contradictions a lot better than the Holy Scriptures), or Rah, Anubis and Bastet, Krishna, Vishnu and Parvati, or all the other >100 deities that humans have beileved in.
I certainly don't have shame in saying I am the consequence of a lot of improbable events. There was no purpose on my life being made, other than my parents wanting to have a child, and I, as a genetic human being, am but one of may other possibilities that could have happened if my dad's sperm cell that contained half of me didn't hit my mother's egg.
I am an atheist. But you, a theist, really believe that, if there was a higher power, or higher intelligence, would it really be Yahveh? Would it actually make all those absurd laws about hating abortion and homosexuals, and have all those logic contradictions (Like giving humans free will and still killing most of them because they didn't do what he wanted)? You talk about God as a He, but do you really think God is a He? What makes you so sure it's not a She? Is God really an omnipotent being, or just a super advanced alien race that threw away some biological waste into our dear planet that later evolved into us? Is this universe created by God, or just some random girl who's science homework was to make a pocket universe to obtain an A+? I'd like to hear your response.
+John Gough thanks for the advice now go preach it to those who attack God and Church. As long as others respect our Beliefs I am fine but wren they attack them we have every right to defend them. As for others not caring, that is just your opinions, and you have know idea who might care or not! You are however entitled to your opinions. Take care.
Einstein and Hawking made huge contribution to making toilet papers sort of scientific.

I don't see how Steven Hawking can only accept 1 our of four possibilities of space. It can have a start and an end, it can have no start and no end, it can have no start and an end; it can have a start and no end. He has settled on a start with no end; the evidence used is fallible.
edical experts, historians and archaeologists have examined in detail the execution that Jesus Christ voluntarily endured. All agree that he suffered one of the most gruelling and painful forms of capital punishment ever devised by man. Here is a brief summary of some of the things we know about his last hours from history, archaeology and medicine…
Severe stress, even before the abuse began
Jesus had the weight of the world on his shoulders. Even before the crucifixion began, he clearly had physical symptoms associated with severe stress. The night before the execution, his disciples reported seeing Jesus in “agony” on the Mount of Olives. Not only did he not sleep all night, but he seems to have been sweating profusely. So great was the stress that tiny blood vessels were rupturing in his sweat glands and emitting as great red drops that fell to the ground (see Luke 22:44). This symptom of severe stress is called hematohidrosis.
Jesus was physically exhausted and in danger of going into shock unless he received fluids (which he apparently did not). This is the man that the Roman soldiers tortured.
Torture by beating with Roman scourges
Having previously been beaten by the Jews, it was now the Romans’ turn. The beatings administered by Roman soldiers are well known to be very bloody, leaving lacerations all over the body. Romans designed their whips to cut the flesh from their victim’s bodies. These beatings were designed to be painful to the extreme. It would also cause a fluid build up around his lungs. In addition, a crown of thorns was forced into his scalp which was capable of severely irritating major nerves in his head, causing increasing and excruciating pain, as the hours wore on.
In Christ’s severely stressed condition, these beatings were easily enough to kill him. His body was horribly bruised, cut and bleeding. Having had no nourishment for many hours, and having lost fluids through profuse sweating and much bleeding, Jesus would have been severely dehydrated. This brutal torture would certainly be sending him into what doctors call “shock,” and shock kills.
In addition, Jesus was forced to carry the the wooden beam on which he would die. Imagine the effect of carrying a heavy weight if you were in that condition.
Hung completely naked before the crowd, the pain and damage caused by crucifixion were designed to be so devilishly intense that one would continually long for death, but could linger for days with no relief.
According to Dr. Frederick Zugibe, piercing of the median nerve of the hands with a nail can cause pain so incredible that even morphine won’t help, “severe, excruciating, burning pain, like lightning bolts traversing the arm into the spinal cord.” Rupturing the foot’s plantar nerve with a nail would have a similarly horrible effect.
Furthermore, the position of the body on a cross is designed to make it extremely difficult to breathe.
Frederick Farrar described the intended, torturous effect: “For indeed a death by crucifixion seems to include all that pain and death can have of horrible and ghastly—dizziness, cramp, thirst, starvation, sleeplessness, traumatic fever, tetanus, shame, publicity of shame, long continuance of torment, horror of anticipation, mortification of untended wounds—all intensified just up to the point at which they can be endured at all, but all stopping just short of the point which would give to the suffer the relief of unconsciousness.”
One doctor has called it “a symphony of pain” produced by every movement, with every breath; even a slight breeze on his skin could bring screaming pain at this point.
Medical examiner, Dr. Frederick Zugibe, believes Christ died from shock due to loss of blood and fluid, plus traumatic shock from his injuries, plus cardiogenic shock causing Christ’s heart to fail.
At the ninth hour (the time at which a sacrificial lamb was killed everyday in the Jewish temple), Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?” which is translated,“My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” and soon died, after saying “It is finished.” At about this moment is probably the time when the temple’s priestly ram’s horn would have been blown that day, announcing that the priests had completed the sacrifice of the lamb for the sins of Israel. Also at that moment, the great, thick curtain that closed the Holy of Holies room from view, ripped open from top to bottom. —Mark 15:34 and Matthew 27:46
James Thompson believed that Jesus did not die from exhaustion, the beatings or the 3 hours of crucifixion, but that he died from agony of mind producing rupture of the heart. His evidence comes from what happened when the Roman soldier pierced Christ’s left side. The spear released a sudden flow of blood and water (John 19:34). Not only does this prove that Jesus was already dead when pierced, but Thompson believes it is also evidence of cardiac rupture. Respected physiologist Samuel Houghton believed that only the combination of crucifixion and rupture of the heart could produce this result.
There is no question that it was painful beyond words.
Biblically, it is clear that Jesus chose and willed His moment of death. That moment was induced not by pain, emotional stress, heart attack, or any other, but by His will. Though fully human, He is also fully divine. As God, He could not die from external sources, but only of His own volition and will.
Near the end, a criminal beside him mocked, “If you are the Christ, save yourself and us.” Little did this sinner know that the man he was speaking to hung there voluntarily. He was speaking to our Creator, capable of releasing all the power in the universe and beyond, and easily saving himself. Jesus remained in this agony and shame, not because he was powerless, but because of his incredible love for humanity. He suffered to provide the needed way of salvation for you and me.
Thank you my Lord and SAVIOR Jesus Christ... I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART AND SOUL...<3

If a big bang gave life to this universe caused by instability, are all big bangs (multiverses) parallel to ours? Would that mean that every possible outcome has or will happen?Will every universe have a specie that questions why rather than how it was created?
I don't know who your answer was directed to, but, I am also interested in finding out. And, no, I do not go around saying God did it because I am not 100% certain of that statement. I see that a previous, very colorful, comment you made to me was removed...
I don't know the answer to that. The difference between me and you is that I'm interested in actually knowing the answer. Overtime science WILL find the answer. Feel free to just say "God did it" and call it good.
+lars kri Yes and no. That's the famous hypothesis. There's enough proof to consider it a possibility, not enough to make a theory out of it, and we're not advanced enough to make it true facts. But once we have complete and solid evidence on this, we will all know.
+Eddy Reyes What if a unicorn existed and you were wrong? What I am saying here is you can make anything up and say, "and what if you are wrong?" It is just a waste of time, and it is better to just go where the evidence takes you.
