It needs to be said. They are fake science. Heinous theories invented by rainy day mathematicians. What I think really happened is that Mr. Hawking did not have enough light outside (he lived in England). Always overcast nights = inventing black things. I know, it sounds silly, but I think if he had just looked at stars shining, his mind would have been preoccupied with how they worked, instead of going off into fantasy land.
Like a man who always lives in a cave, but doesn't really know what the outside world looks like. Mathematicians are the men chained to the walls I guess, the prisoners. They mistake the shadows for real things (they mistake their math formulas for real things).
Gosh. There's so much damage to undo. I don't know how long its going to take to reverse the mind altering nonsense invented in the 1960's.
