I don't know whether to debate the theory or the theorist. This is pretty old news, but I don't think I really gave it much thought when it was 'big'
news back at the start of the year, or was it last year when he first made these statements?
I agree he has a great mind, but he's purely guessing with this sort of stuff. I wouldn't doubt his ability to tame physics, quantum mechanics and of
course "Hawking Radiation", but aliens - is that really his line of work? I think this is just, if anything (and not fear mongering) it's just his own
thoughts, without any real evidence or scientific backing. He probably got drunk one night and had this idea about aliens and wrote it down, and
someone thought - oh my god, Hawking hasn't been in the news since he went in a zero gravity plane four or five years ago, let's put his new drunken
statements out there!
As far as I'm aware, there is no evidence he's ever had a UFO or alien encounter. And personally, I tend not to listen to people who make statements
but have had no experience of an encounter themselves.
And if UFOs signal an alien invasion, considering we possibly have evidence that dates back to the dawn of man that sphere's and things have been seen
in the sky - God knows what kind of timeline Hawking is talking about when he states that. We clearly haven't been invaded by aliens in the past 3000
years, so how can UFO sightings be any kind of legitimate signal of an invasion? If I stand over an ant hill I find in a random field and observe, I'm
So for the theory: Poppycock. We all know if aliens wanted the earth, for its resources, they would've taken them a long time ago, when we humans
hadn't plundered them all.
And as for the theorist: He's becoming a washed up, boring old scientist in my eyes grasping for attention. He should stick to what he knows best.
Sure, these comments about aliens and heaven raise some fun debates. But soon he'll need to wear a clown suit and a big red nose for me to take much
notice. If you're reading prof Hawking, stop talking about subjects you don't have a clue about! Don't demean the thousands of people who have had
legitimate experiences, none of which signaled an invasion, as many of these people will automatically interpret what you're saying as BS.
Hawking is not a credible figure to take advice about aliens from. Your next door neighbor who had a close encounter of the third kind is a far
better figure to listen to.
If anyone finds any tales of Hawking meeting aliens or seeing UFOs, I'd be interested to know.
