Stephen Hawking:
"There are no black holes"

The Independent (UK), by Heather Saul

Original Article

Posted By:duhem, 1/26/2014 7:56:37 AM

Stephen Hawking has produced a "mind-bending" new theory that argues black holes do not actually exist - at least not in the way we currently perceive them. Instead, in his paper, Information Preservation and Weather Forecasting for Black Holes, Hawking proposes that black holes can exist without 'event horizons', the invisible cover believed to surround every black hole.During a previous lecture, 'Into the Black Hole', Hawkins described an event horizon as the boundary of a black hole, "where gravity is just strong enough to drag light back, and prevent it escaping".
“Falling through the event horizon, is a bit like going over Niagara Falls in a canoe", he said. "If you are above the falls, you can get away if you paddle fast enough, but once you are over the edge, you are lost. There's no way back.

Ah.. so much for immutable theoretical physics. Will Hawkings also retract his opinion that Creation doesn´t need a Creator?

Hawking also warns that global warming with destroy earth. And he is anti-Israel. And he does not believe in God. I have a feeling that mechanical voice of his is control by pot smoking liberals.

As I have read, Hawking can only communicate by blinks of an eye, and the only person who knows how to interpret the blinks is his personal graduate assistant.
It is not unlike the scam known as ´facilitated commmunication´ which was pimped out by a Syracuse University education professor, Douglas Biklen, as a way for autistic chillum to communicate by using a keyboard.
Frontline, PBS, thoroughly debunked the process. They should check out Hawking.

I´m looking at the picture and I don´t see any black holes, only a black background. I´m not saying there aren´t any black holes, we don´t know because what we are looking at is what existed a billion or so light years ago. In other words, yesterdays news.

Other that that, I´m going to shut up now because I´m thinking up a few wise cracks that may get me banned.

He is a genius working in a field of expertise so rarified that most of us aren´t able to understand his work, much less pass judgement on it. Speaking of judgement, Hawking also has opinions in areas where he is not expert. So, when Hawking opines on Middle Eastern politics or the existence of god, I ignore him just as I would discount folks who think there was ever supposed to be something immutable about scientific theory. Being a bad Christian doesn´t make you a bad theoretical physicist any more than it makes you a bad house painter. The job qualifications are different.

The issue here is about what kind of physical regime exists very close to a black hole. Given a lack of experimental evidence, it´s hard to be certain. However, Hawking may be right in his conjecture. Einstein´s theories don´t mesh with quantum physics.

As I read the article, the title is misleading. Hawking isn´t denying the existence of the immense gravity wells themselves, but merely reformulating what theoretically happens at the event horizon, the thing that makes black holes "black".

With regard to his opinions on subjects such as Israel, global warming, and God, a lifetime in academia has taught me that the smarter the person, the sillier the ideas they´re likely to entertain - especially those regarding subjects outside their area of expertise.

Agree, #14.
Einstein had calculations to explain the universe. They work very well until you get to extremes like black holes or in the other direction for particles. Quantum physics works for those extremes but doesn´t help sometimes because by its very nature some things can´t be defined, "Quantum Uncertainty Principle".
Things have a dual nature and can shift depending on how you look at them but you can never tell with certainty what both natures are at the same time. Hawking is playing with that principle to try to guess what is going on at the edge of the event horizon.

Hawking made his name showing that black holes might let anything out via quantum effects and small ones might "evaporate", so this "not really black" thing is twenty years old. The new announcement involves some fine-tuning, basically a minor debate about "how black is it?" It´s still pretty black. You want to prove otherwise, jump in and then jump back out again, and I´ll buy lunch.

I read a book not long ago written by a professor of Applied Mathematics at Tulane University entitled, "The Physics of Christianity." It was an interesting read, although his level of mathematics was well beyond my Masters in Engineering level. He made the statement in his book that there are no "black holes." All this time I thought it was a "given" in Astro-Physics!

One thing that fascinated me was his assertion that modern Physicists no longer speak of a "universe", but the "multiverse." Apparently, Heisenberg´s Uncertainty Principle can be resolved using the many universe theory. I´ll spare you the relation of this to the theology of the Omniscience, Foreknowledge, and Divine Decrees of God.

#6 and 7 may be right. Who really knows what Hawking is thinking?? Even if he really did believe all the crazy stuff that has been coming out of his computer generated voice, I never thought he was any kind of genius. I think he was propped up (no pun intended) by the elite and fawned over mainly because he has a debilitating disease. I don´t think he has any great mind at all.

Supreme Court blocks
contraceptives rule for religious groups

The Supreme Court on Friday shielded the Little Sisters of the Poor and other nonprofit religious groups from complying, for now, with the Obama administration’s rule that they provide free contraceptives in the health insurance they offer employees. The justices issued a one-paragraph order that keeps in place a temporary injunction that was handed down by Justice Sonia Sotomayor on Dec. 31. The Little Sisters of the Poor and other Catholic charities objected to the so-called “contraceptive mandate” -- a provision of the Affordable Care Act -- on religious grounds. Their lawyers said they feared “draconian fines” if they failed to comply

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'
