Hawking a hoax 

Be the 1st to vote.

Update: New ALS drug? Has Stephen Hawking been using this drug the whole time? Coincidence or deliberate that Hawking is now in a new cosmo nonsense series?


In one of the most blatant cases of (simulated) disabled abuse, we have another silly story.

Leave it to renowned physicist Stephen Hawking to be the bearer of incredibly interesting yet wildly depressing news about the state of the world. In his forthcoming documentary for BBC, Expedition New Earth, Hawking predicts that planet Earth will only survive for the next 100 years. 


I hope no one is paying attention to this simulated psientist. If people really thought about it (and they don’t) they might ask has does someone with ALS survive so long? What is the secret?

Who wrote the software to convert cheek twitches into complex written theories? That guy is the real genius.

Sometimes I think we will make it off this planet before everyone realises that we can’t.

Hawking has a rare early-onset, slow-progressing form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) that has gradually paralysed him over the decades. He now communicates using a single cheek muscle attached to a speech-generating device.


The average life expectancy of a person with ALS is two to five years from the time of diagnosis. However, it varies greatly:

  • Over 50 percent of people with ALS live more than three years.
  • Twenty percent live five years or more.
  • Ten percent live 10 or more years.
  • Five percent will live more than 20 years

    Surprisingly, Lucy and her father have never talked about the motor neurone disease that has ravaged his body since he was diagnosed at the age of 21 (he was given two years to live but is now 62).
    It has always existed in her life – she has never seen him walk – but never discussed.

    A strange lack of curiosity, like ‘Hey, dad, how come you’ve survived so long? What’s your secret?’

    Suddenly though the media is suddenly curious about his family and especially the paternity of younger son Tim
    The T4 SWH personalised registration plate of his car [Mirror ice bucket challenge video] is rather tacky for a cosmologist – genius …..[since transferred to a VW Caravelle]

    Hawking’s daughter took down her twitter feed recently @journeytospace
    strange, that.


    Vanity Fair 2004

    She won’t elaborate on the years of her father’s second marriage, in which she didn’t see so much of him, but working on the book has, they both agree, brought them much closer.

    Sounds quite a sudden “death” – no mention of an ill health for some time. The excellent Cluesforum trhead is worth revisiting, which Ab mentioned a few years ago.

    What fascinates me is not just the late growth spurt of his lower incisors and his extraordinary survival with ALS but also his apparent cure for short sightedness – his spectacle prescription lurched away from myopia in later years.

    Interestingly, the Sun newspaper has chosen to focus on wife #2
    which neatly fits into the current “abuse” topic. Perhaps that too was a fake story.

    The UK media seems quiet on the “adoption” of the Vietnamese girl by the Hawkings [wife#2] but news sources in Vietnam have some super family images.



    He seemed to be having a whale of a time in the ‘vomit comet’ allegedly in 2007.

    The news breaks at 3.43 AM GMT [Daily Mail] 3.51 [Guardian] It’s clearly a “death” for the media.
    “a family member has said”
    Quick, release a statement to the media. Can’t we grab some sleep, it’s half past three in the morning?
    No, gotta get it out for the 6 am news.

    His family released a statement in the early hours of Wednesday morning confirming his death at his home in Cambridge.
    Hawking’s children, Lucy, Robert and Tim, said in a statement: “We are deeply saddened that our beloved father passed away today.

    Good recent video on the Stephen Hoaxing hawk


    James Donaghy 1 day ago
    My mother-in-law has been diagnosed with the same illness for 30 odd years.
    I’m embarrassed by this nasty attack on a champion thinker and visionary like Stephen Hawkin.?

    LOL! Donaghy can’t even get Hawking’s name right….
