    Stephen Hawking passed away from complications of ALS at the tender age of 76.

    "Who?" you ask?

    Dr. Stephen Hawking was a leading expert in theoretical physics, publishing several treatises on black holes and the like. Here's more about him: https://www.yahoo.com/news/stephen-hawking-dead-famed-scientist-035055007.html

    I guess that Pi(e) Day could be considered apropos for him to pass on...

    Fascinating fellow, who apparently had a humorous side as well....

    God phoned me last night ... bit upset ...

    Apparently Stephen had only been there a couple of hours when they had a face-to-face and Stephen somehow convinced the Deity that He doesn't exist ... He's not too pleased and a bit confused ...

    Well if this is true, G!d has more of an open mind than his followers.

    And I am a tad confused as well...

    a. a devout atheist gets to go to heaven?
    b. a scientist ends up in an imaginary place after death?
    c. Hawking is not only smarter than all of us, but also smarter than G!d?
    d. He spoke with something he doesn't believe to exist?
    e. Did some telcom run a hard line our cell towers to the heavens?
    f. does that mean there is wifi and we will be able to continue to login?

    Now I suddenly get relativity

    Quite possible.

    Well you say it's imaginary ... I find it no more preposterous than multiverse theory, and some other cosmic solutions, in fact more credible than some ... According to Quantum Phenomena, somewhere Elvis is alive and in the building ...

    According to Hawkings ...

    He's reviewing that assumption

    No, I have a private line

    It's more a LAN without borders 'locality', etc.,

    You see! Yay! :D

    I disagree with the premise...If Hawkings ended up in Heaven talking to G!d...that would immediately end his thoughts that heaven and G!d didn't exist.

    and if there was a LAN...then I am sure many of our buddies who have passed on would have posted by now... especially the one that started this thread, inlove, prober..and the rest...

    Next time you talk, ask if He wants to be a moderator on here :) That might help us attract some new and interesting members...

    Might get the trolls and other troublemakers to really read the CoC, eh?

    David Goodall passed away at the tender age of 104 after willingly undergoing an assisted suicide in Switzerland.

    "Who?" you ask?

    He was a biologist from Down Under (I don't know much more about his accomplishments during his lifetime. :( ) Here's everything that I know/more information about him https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Goodall_(botanist)
