I always thought Hawking looked like a retard and this proves that to be right! Don't listen to this retard who is too stupid to even talk! He is an Anti Semitic retard!

He looks like a retard, and cannot talk because he is dying of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Which will probably be soon. You would be devastated if someone in your family was dying of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. It is a very cruel killer.

I want to comment on Stephen Hawking (In to the universe - aliens) documentary - if anybody has seen it:

how can you suggest the working of something, when you don't know what it is made up of !!! When you are not certain even about your own evolution, how can you suggest the evolution of aliens on distance planets!!!??? When you say your evolution is an "accident", how can you ensure certainty in anything at all????

First our evolution was not an accident it was a natural process and the start of which is still undetermined... Free Space is filled with organic compounds that rain down of the earth by the metric ton every day... The same organic compounds that fall on us can fall on the trillions of other planets throughout the universe...

We see the billions of variations of Life as we know it here on earth and understand we cannot actually define what constitutes Life in the first place.... So we can extrapolate what other life forms Might evolve given a set of known rules to follow based on how assorted life forms have evolved here under known rules....Now and Past....

TO HAWKING'S CRITICS.....

He's brighter than YOU!

PLUS

He represents the general World view against the Genocidal, Zionist Bully

What else do you glean from your shiny, new cuspidor

"an accident" and "a natural process" are the same thing.

There's nothing new or profound in the rest of what you say; it's all in any 101 textbook so I don't know why you're trying to impress anyone.

You might as well stay "On Topic"

I spent years in S.E./Cent. Asia/ Mil. Ops and about a year in the Mid East(Plus civilian time), wandering from tribe/village/country to country learning about Mid East Complexities, I use and have used ex Mil Intel. sources, plus to help understand the complexities of the current Regional/Global confliicts in the Mid East.

I'm fairly confident your background in the "Topic" at hand is not nearly as extensive.

Things in the region have changed over the decades since you where in the area.
Besides the fact that this Topic is about a Boycott and has nothing to do with where you have been and who you have met.
So one with international law background or more extensive knowledge of the history of the BDS movement.

For example. The BDS leaders call for the destruction of Israel not a two state solution. They support violence against civilians in Israel, they support ILLEGALLY (according to the UN Palmer Report) trying to break a blockade, and so on.
This is not a peaceful humanitarian group which Hawking is supporting but evil, inciters.

Science should never be swayed by politics. Politics is biased opinion, science is reasoned logic.

The liberal leftists consider Hawking their own puppet to be dangled at the public as the voice of reason, hopefully he will loose himself from their biased obsessions and be his own man instead of a bobble-head for Chomsky's agenda.

Chomsky likes to think of himself as a social architect, a molder of men...an "intellectual".

The Topic at have of the replies was about evolution being accidental or natural which different concepts and I don't care if you blazed your way through Ho Che Minn City & Katmandu it has nothing to do with the Topic of the reply you are responding too...
