    I tell my kids not to pay attention at school when they try to force theories down their throats. Stick to facts!

    I can't even comment further on this thread.

    It's paradoxical...I can't even finish that thought.

    Well, when I or anyone else postulate theories about how something occurred or might have occurred, really those “theories” are not of the same caliber of a scientific theory. We don’t present our theories to scrutiny and devise tests to see how we might poke holes in the theory. We usually present our theories to peers who share the same worldview and who reinforce our “theory”.

    Science isn’t the same as gossip.

    And theories aren't wild ass guesses, contrary to popular belief. Even a hypothesis isn't a guess, it's more of a starting point of understanding based on facts.

    The word "theory," outside science, is often used as a synonym for "opinion." However, a theory arrived at via the scientific method and producing repeatable results is not just someone's opinion. It is, in popular parlance, what we would call a "fact."

    Does anybody deny the veracity of the theory of gravity? Yeah, I didn't think so. Most of us would say that gravity is a fact. Those who want to deny the reality of gravity, well...

    Jump up in the air and see if you float all the way to the moon. If you don't, well then, you got some 'splainin' to do!

    Don't forget the many - and very funny guest appearances on The Simpsons, Futurama and The Big Bang Theory. Despite what he had to deal with, he still had a great sense of humour. RIP.

    What a howling error: Stephen Hawking wrote Pet CEMETERY

    You're both wrong.

    Actually, he wrote Pet Sematary.

    The only reason I know the correct title to that book is that it is the very last "horror movie" that I ever watched, and I only made it about 1/2 of the way through. I vowed off all horror movies after that. That was in high school I supposed... someone had rented the VHS from Blockbuster.

    I should have double checked my sources ! But i don t know, i love those books. As for Stephen s book, I don t have read any. And if I did, i m pretty sure they would have been a bit too hard to grasp for me.

    From Wiki:

    The title of the book is a reference to a quotation attributed to mathematician Leopold Kronecker, who once wrote that "God made the integers; all else is the work of man."[2]

    Always liked this idea.

    Big Guy works his butt off, creating the basis of Man.

    Then he punched out on the clock, hopped in his Rocket and headed for another destination to try his Work somewhere else.

    Kinda like a Randy Long Distance Trucker who has progeny in every truckstop town in the USA; who he has never seen. What if the "Boy Named Sue" never did meet his Daddy, ever?
