And that's the problem, people follow Hawkings religiously taking guidance and knowledge from him on matters beyond human knowledge. He is their God.
No they don't ROFL. You're acting like people treat Hawking like the Pope. They simply respect his opinion enough to take what he says seriously. His thoughts, opinions and theories are based on facts that ANYONE could find. His, like many other's take on life is based on looking at the evidence presented and making theories based on that. Compare this to religion where people take predefined opinions and theories and try to find evidence to support it and you can see the blatant illogicalities.
