"Take all that money that we spend on weapons and defenses each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace." - Bill Hicks

That man is the mac daddy of theoretical physics but he is the Snoop Dog of the world.

4:33 I am no better than anyone else at understanding what make's people tick.. particularly women!

Haha another great quote by Hawking... I really recommend you guys to read at least one of his books.. The Universe in a nutshell... or A Brief History of Time... you'll be smarter than you were before you read it I guarantee. 8-)

I am no mathematician, but I only count 8 (7 really, two were combined) questions.

Lets not forget that theoretical physics is code for "best guess", he says that there was nothing before the big bang as there is nothing south of the south pole, there is absolutly no way of knowing this, so stop, stating this as if it is fact.
If anyone has a clue to what went on before then, please feel free to have a "theoretical" stab at it, it would be just as plausible as Mr Hawkins "theories".

Actually because the total energy of the universe is 0, it could have started from nothing. So probably there really was nothing before the big bang.

You can't form something from nothing.

#8 Quantum Physics disagrees. Look up vacuum energy.

#10.

Just look around we are running out of resources, we are over populated, every taliban mutherfucker has guns and nukes.

We are so screwed it's not even funny.

#9 #12 People like you are the main reason I think we will destroy ourself before even exploring the solar system. You should try and see beyond the propaganda the TV is feeding you.

#6 The big bang is basically an instability at quantum level. In quantum mechanics, due to vacuum energy, things pop into existence and annihilate each other (particle/anti-particle couples): that happens all the time, several million times just around and in you. The total energy is zero.

This instability which created the big bang (which explains why there always seems to be a bit more matter than anti-matter) created (at least) four dimensions: X,Y,Z of space and time. Before the big bang, there was no such thing as "time" itself. Hence, "before the big bang" makes no sense at all.

#10 you're so wrong... The Earth is not overpopulated at all.

#12 you forgot to mention Obama's conspiracy to take away your guns and give them to the communists and immigrants so they can take over America's(which BTW is not a country but a continent) way of life and convert them all to Islam.
:D :D >:)

#6 and lets not forget that magical-mythical thinking is code for "worst guess". >:)
