Hawking's PhD

Postby Rum » Mon Oct 23, 2017 6:14 pm

His ideas are interesting. Prefer the gravistar alternative idea myself....singularities where the laws of the universe cease to function, that's like Marvel comic universe territory (too bizarre even for me).

He knows his wrong - he's aware of the possibilities in his own field. Too much credibility at stake though.
