    I still remember reading one of his books in college. it was so interesting that I read it cover to cover in one sitting. I remember one of his quotes: "you can never prove something, only disprove."

    Aw, shit, this is not good.
    We can't have this happen!
    It'll rip the space-time continuum!

    For all that I have read on science and the like I never actually got around to reading brief history of time. Found a copy in a charity shop the other day so I guess I will do the posthumous thing now.

    I don't know when we will next see his like. Equally I look forward to seeing what he left on the back burner and will get finished and explored over the coming years.

    RIP dude.

    How can he be not a good person? Only because he didnt believe in god? Seriously? Tell me, what have you contributed to the humanity either cientific or religion related? Nothing? I see... This man was a genius, he contributed like no onde has done to science and for the better of our humanity, not only understand how stuff works here, but to also look above us and imagine how stuff works outside of your comfort zone.

    May he rest in peace. His contributions and legacy will be always remembered.

    It's wrong to dislike someone just because they don't believe in God. If you believe in the same God as I do, then you should know that you are supposed to love everyone, not just the people who think the same as you. Regardless, death is a sad and terrible thing so being happy about that is distasteful and not good representation of your beliefs.

    I heard this news only minutes after he was pronounced dead. I was so shocked that I stopped in the middle of my work just to confirm that this was true. I am honestly rather beaten up, he was someone I looked up to growing up and I wanted so badly to meet him one day. He had a extremely brilliant mind and there where be a void that can never be filled. I hope he's finally free and able to venture the universe like he's always wanted.

    What a tactless, disgusting thing to say just hours after this man's death....

    That we all die and when we go isn't the point. I think you missed the boat here. It's a matter of basic decency.

    Sure, but this man wasn't just any other person. This was a person who had an incredibly gifted mind, and defied his illness both physically and mentally, and I don't think I'll see anyone comparable to him in my lifetime. At least not with the masses of impact and influence he had.

    Believing in god doesn't decide whether or not someone is a good person, there are lots of horrible people out there who believe in god, just like how there are good people who believe in god as well.

    This post of yours just shows that you are incredibly judgemental and quick to judge a person who also recently died, for his lack of belief. It reflects more upon what kind of person you are than what kind of person he was.

    I believe that's the book I mentioned. I had forgotten the title. it's not overly scientific, so it's pretty easy to follow. :)
