Well, I think this really does show the most common view among scientists, that aliens and UFOs are false. I think they think this because they know that most people find the idea of aliens and UFOs false as most just wave it away. I think they at least say they don't believe in it is because they'd lose credibility. Many scientists won't even consider it which I think is sad.
Well that in terms is hawking's claim and belief, we are all titled to our own so he is entitled to his just as well.

I believe this is a perfect demonstration of how man can be so intelligent in one area of his life and so ignorant in another. He comments regarding cranks and weirdos only showcases his lack of knowledge on the subject. I would have expected more from Mr. Hawking. I guess this just goes to prove that book smarts and common sense are do not always go hand in hand. My 2 pennies
