Oh come on, don't you think it's a little funny that someone would say I've learnt from a prostitute who once said, "I know I do not deserve saying this. But I love you." [sic] to Stephen Hawking?

... or how 'bout, I've found all the damn reasons to believe better pornography would be accepted and even children would be allowed to watch it in future. Yet I never dared to say it for I was scared. I was scared I would be wrong, laughed, humiliated, hated, and misunderstood. I was scared for not having qualification or knowledge, for saying things I should not say, doing things I should not do, though I never hurt anyone. [sic]?

Okay maybe the second part was a little funny.

i think it was great all the way though, not only in comedy but in seriousness also. granted i never found much insight in what i have seen from Hawking either so that has some bais to it as well. also, i ponder the possibility that the consistency of the speed of light could be a perceptual thing and not directly indicative of really; don't ask me to present an argument on that though, like i said it is mealy speculation.

Seemed funny in some places, but it is disrespectful, but it is also Freedom of Speech, Sooooo.......


Sorta agree with Kyleb's statments, about the science parts.....

Dislike the 'Verve' in the threads title, should be able to attract a reader without the need of expletives....?

Yep. :wink: If I were a guy who found it appropriate
to express his feelings in public (which is
mostly not the case) - I'd laugh through tears !

i didn't know there was anything obscene about that specific expression. granted i like rock'n roll music and all sorts of other thinks that some people swear up and down is vulgar as can be.


oh, and i suppose the letter could be considered disrespectful in some sense; but such is life. to be honest, i have not read much from Hawking and i am no Einstein; but have done my share of studding in that read a transcript from a debate between Stephen Hawking and Sir Roger Penrose, it was quite a good book. well i enjoyed reading the Penrose part, but Hawking's stuff seemed either blatantly obvious or based on absurd amounts of conjecture. i found that rather disrespectful myself and i got the feeling that Sir Penrose did as well although he handled himself quite well thought the ordeal. point being; people are bound to find opinions disrespectful on occasion, suck it up.

It was not an accusation, just an observation, cause there just might be some younger readers.

personally I find the excessive use (which you have not done) a sign of a lack of verbal skills, and a clear sense of them having an inferiority 'issue', with respect to being taken seriously, hence that kind of language, for the impact they seek, but (feel they) can not get, any other way.

Just because others indulge doesn't mean you should, or shouldn't.

The idea of "disrespect" is only an observation, no 'intent' is placed, other then 'noting' it that way.

But the truth is I don't understand it. If I did a 7-year Physics course in uni, I think I could only get that far to your 17th page at most. And worse, I know I would still not agree with you. Even Professor H. Dingle did not agree with Einstein, what luck then should I have? I don't know why I cannot pretend to understand it. I just can't. Something wrong with it, or something wrong with me. I must be an idiot in Physics. That's the only thing I could deduce from reading twenty books about relativity.
Who the hell is Professor H. Dingle?
