I didn't see this coming although I am not surprised. RIP

Obviously sucks that he passed away, but I have to say that I'm impressed that he lived to 76. RIP.

Who will take his place, that is the question at hand.

RIP.

He died on Einstein's birthday and Pi Day.


Maybe he now knows if his theory of there being no god is valid or not.

The day of his death when factored into his life is intriguing to say the least. He left his mark on humanity.

I read of his passing this morning and immediately came here, knowing you guys would be talking about it.

It sucks, but he lead a much longer and fuller life than anyone thought possible. He was only given two years to live when he was given his prognosis. I've read one of his books. Very good read about black holes. Thankfully we still have a few brilliant minds in physics left on this earth. I'm unsure how "useful" Stephen was these last few years with his condition getting worse and worse. :(

RIP. He was a game changer when it comes to cosmology and physics. I don't personally admire him, since he was an ungrateful asshole toward his wife. But I can't deny his huge contributions to science.

News of his death caught me by surprise this morning as well. The world of physics will definitely be poorer without that shining star, RIP.

I bet the asking prices on his awesome Playmates World of Springfield Simpsons action figures will be jumping up shortly, if they haven't already.

Wonder if some maverick doctor will keep his brain as a personal souvenir like what happened to Einstein

He had a long and fruitfull life considering the hand he was dealt, a deep thinker with razor sharp intellect and a very funny. witty chap to boot.
A lifelong atheist, his comment, "I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail.
'There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark".
just about sum's up religion, god and an afterlife to me.

I'd also add his endurance to live on as one of his qualities. Given his condition, he carried his cross well. R.I.P.

So if someone in the future cures cancer or brings the world together to abolish nuclear weapons, you will not personally admire him if he was mean to his wife? :keke:

You know what I mean. I'm not going to put him up on a pedestal. I'm not going to pretend he's something he's not. Just like Gandhi not allowing his wife to take life saving medicine but then taking medicine himself when his life was in danger. Or Mother Teresa letting sick people suffer so they could be "closer to god."

Turn it around. Someone become helpless, but his wife commits her life to taking care of him. He dumps her for the visiting nurse. You admire this person?
