How Atheism Makes You Dumb and Destructive – PART 2
And now back to Wynona:
Comment by Wynona Lavota on November 20th 2008 07:55:
Pretentious moron your opinion is not humble if you arrogantly oppose God like you do. Stop pretending to be good, it’s insulting to those who are, LIKE GOD.
"atheists are the unknown,"
You stupid moron. Can’t you even be bothered to check the facts on at least Atheistpedia, excuse me Wikipedia on atheists? How the freak are the unknown you jerk, when morons like yourselves constantly pollute the net with your dumb nonsensical rehash, when tons of millions of Buddhists are atheists, when stupid attention-seeking pagans keep claiming to be atheist to have an opportunity to reply to Christians speaking to atheists, when millions of atheists persecute Christians TO DEATH in the worst ways, in front of the family members of those Christians, FOR THE PLEASURE OF THE ATHEISTS DOING THE TORTURING AND MURDERING, YOU INSULTING INSULTING HATEFUL JERK, THAT INCLUDES YOU SCOFFER AND DERIDER ALT_ED (YES, YOU EVIL TROLLS ARE MURDERERS, LET ALONE THE "DERIDERS" YOU HYPOCRITES), AND WHEN YOU MORONS KEEP TAKING CHRISTIANS TO COURT OVER "RELIGIOUS VIOLATIONS", LIKE PRAYING AT SCHOOL OR HAVING A BIBLE CLUB AT SCHOOL, WHEN YOU MORONS STEAL TAX PAYER MONEY FROM CHRISTIANS YOU STUPID EVIL JERKS, TO PUSH, FOR DECADES NOW, THE FALSE RELIGION OF HUMANISTIC SCIENCE (SCIENCE WITH THE INTENT OF KEEPING GOD’S WILL AND ACTS AS AN ULTIMATE EXPLANATION FOR ANYTHING OR CLEAR MIRACLES AND WITH THE INTENT TO MAKE MAN, ANIMALS, OR NON-LIVING THINGS THE OBJECTS OF WORSHIP) ? HOW THE FREAK ARE YOU UNKNOWN TO THE WORLD FOR KEEPING UP AN ENDLESS AGENDA AGAINST THE TEACHING OF ANYTHING RESEMBLING THE TEN COMMANDMENTS IN SCHOOL, OR HISTORY THAT ACKNOWLEDGES THE ROLE OF CHRISTIANS OR THE BIBLE IN THE FORMATION OF ANYTHING, YOU BLIND SICKO? GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF THE SAND OF YOUR WORTHLESS OPINIONS!
AND YOU THEN SAID, "the odd ones out-"
Morons, Calvinists are the unknowns and odd ones out. And moron, merely being unknown and the odd ones out doesn’t mean that people will be subject to discrimination unless it’s sickos like you who are the majority. You sickos also persecute the majority, which isn’t you.
AND YOU THEN SAID: "like immigrants or homosexuals so they’re subject to discrimination because they represent something the theists are scared to explore in themselves"
MASSIVE MASSIVE MORON, HOMOSEXUALITY IS PRACTICED MANY IN CHRISTIAN SECTS LET ALONE NON-CHRISTIAN RELIGIONS, YOU MORON.
SECOND, MASSIVE MORON, AMERICA IS MADE UP OF IMMIGRANTS, YOU IDIOT. SO HOW, YOU IDIOT, CAN IMMIGRANTS BE DISCRIMINATED AGAINST? ON TOP OF THAT, THE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS IN AMERICA OUT NUMBER THE LEGAL ONES IN MANY PLACES, AND ARE SHOWN FAVORITISM LIKE IGNORANTS LIKE YOU, DUE TO YOUR FALSE BELIEFS ABOUT BOTH MINORITIES AND MAJORITIES! SO HOW THE HELL CAN YOU CLAIM THEY ARE "DISCRIMINATED" AGAINST, YOU IGNORANT IGNORANT IDIOT? HOW EXCEPT THAT YOU, LIKE EVERY OTHER ATHEIST, IS MENTALLY STUNTED FOR CONSTANTLY OBSESSING ON YOUR OWN OPINIONS AFTER GETTING TIRED OF LEARNING ANYTHING NEW, AND REPEATEDLY REJECTING EVEN OBVIOUS TRUTHS? GROW UP ALREADY! EVEN ANTHONY FLEW, ONE OF THE WISEST ATHEISTS EVER, WAS A MORON! THAT IDIOT, AFTER FINALLY BECOMING A THEIST, HAD NO ANSWER AS TO WHETHER OR NOT GOD CARED ABOUT MAN! THAT’S HOW MENTALLY STUNTED YOU MORONS ARE: THAT AFTER YEARS OF LISTENING TO THE TRUTH, YOU STILL CAN’T FIGURE OUT SOMETHING UTTERLY OBVIOUS LIKE THAT: GOD SHOWING LOVE, LET ALONE HATE!
Furthermore, MORON, how the hell do you not know that there are tens of thousands of former homosexuals, and MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WHO DID NOT START OUT CHRISTIANS, BUT WERE MORONS LIKE YOU, EVEN ATHEISTS, WHO AFTERWARDS BECOMING CHRISTIANS OR SOME OTHER KIND OF THEIST (THOUGH IF NOT A CHRISTIAN CERTAINLY KEPT THEIR HOMOSEXUAL ORIENTATION)? HOW CAN YOU NOT KNOW THAT WHICH IS COMMON KNOWLEDGE IN THE WORLD? YOU DON’T KNOW, BECAUSE YOU OBSESS ON YOURSELF AND WHATEVER AGREES WITH YOU, AND TO YOUR SHAME IGNORE ALL ELSE THAT CONTRADICTS IT! Not that it’s always intentional, clearly, and as the Bible teaches, Satan blinds the world so that they don’t notice things often, but at the same time, it is very clear that most of you DENY any statements or thoughts that are contrary to what you believe. And do you have any excuse for not doing a simple search on the net, by typing in the opposite of what you believe to see if there is any truth to it? NO! NONE! YOU WASTE YOUR TIME DOING OTHER THINGS, SO WHY CAN’T YOU DO THAT, AND THAT’S NOT EVEN A WASTE OF TIME, IT’S BEING WISE, SOMETHING YOU ALL CLEARLY HATE BEING, EXCEPT IN BEING WISE IN DOING EVIL.
AND THEN YOU SAID: "They’re scared to question their beliefs,"
Read above. Furthermore, moron, how can you not have heard of former Christians or theists? So you’ve never met an atheist that was a former theist? REALLY? UR THAT IGNORANT? And clearly you are saying on top of that, THAT ANYONE WHO DOESN’T BECOME AN ATHEIST IS SCARED TO QUESTION THEIR BELIEFS, AND MERELY BELIEVES WHAT? WHAT THEY WERE FIRST TAUGHT? WHAT THEY WERE TAUGHT LATER ON WHICH THEY DIDN’T BELIEVE? WHICH IS IT DUMMY? BECAUSE IF IT’S AFTER WHAT THEY FIRST BELIEVED, THEN HOW CAN YOU SAY THEY DIDN’T QUESTION YOU IDIOT? CLEARLY THEY HAD TO IF THEY REASONED THAT THEIR FORMER BELIEFS WERE WRONG! DUR!
Further, and this is obvious you moron, who the Hell do you know that has never questioned their beliefs? MORON DID YOU EVEN BOTHER TO READ THE FREE BIBLE WHICH COVERS EVERY SQUARE INCH OF GROUND AND IS THE MOST TRANSLATED AND CAREFULLY TRANSLATED BOOK IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD? IT’S FREE YOU MORON, IT’S CHANGED THE WORLD FOR THE BETTER REPEATEDLY IN ALL PLACES, READ IT IDIOT, YOU MIGHT NOTICE A STORY OR TWO OR COMMENTS ABOUT NOT TO LOSE FAITH. MORON. MAYBE, JUST MAYBE MORON, IF YOU WALKED UP TO ONE RELIGIOUS PERSON, OR USED THE NET, AND ASKED, "HAVE YOU EVER QUESTIONED YOUR BELIEFS, OR LOST FAITH" YOU’D GET A CLUE! MORON, IF YOU BOTHERED TO GO INTO A BIBLE STUDY OR CHURCH OR READ THE BIBLE, YOU’D NOTICE IN IT, QUESTIONS FROM IDIOTS LIKE YOURSELF! DUR! DUR! DUR! AND ACCUSATIONS TOO WHICH SUPPOSEDLY ARE ONLY MADE AGAINST YOU, THOUGH RUBY AND OTHER MORONS LIKE YOURSELF FILLED THIS PAGE WITH PLENTY OF THEM AGAINST THEISTS! YOU HYPOCRITES!
AND WORST OF ALL FOR YOU, IS YOU ARE TALKING TO SOMEONE WHO WROTE THE MOST COMPLETE BOOK ON "ACCUSATORY QUESTIONS" AND ARGUMENTS AGAINST CHRISTIANITY AND RELIGION, MANY OF WHICH I CAME UP WITH MYSELF! IT WASN’T WRITTEN BY MORONS LIKE YOU, STUPID STUPID LAZY MINDED MORON IGNORANTS LIKE YOU, INSULTING SMUG JERKS WHO INSULT TORTURED TO DEATH-BY-ATHEISTS CHRISTIAN CHILDREN LIKE YOU HAVE, BUT BY ME, A CALVINIST, WHO UNLIKE YOU HYPOCRITES, DID QUESTION HIS BELIEFS, BOTH BEFORE AND AFTER, SURE YOU MORONS CLAIM TO QUESTION, BUT YOU ARE BIASED AND HYPOCRITICAL IN YOUR"QUESTIONS". SEE, AS WYNONA NEXT SAID, AND MADE MORE EVIDENCE WITH HER OH SO "HUMBLE OPINION":
"scared to think for themselves"
Hey moron, at the Walmart near there is an Asian atheist who freaks out at the mention of Jesus being good and literally walks away quickly to avoid you or tries to talk over you to shut you up, HE CANNOT BE BOTHERED TO EVEN HEAR ABOUT RELIGION UNLESS YOU ARE SUBTLE ABOUT IT, AND EVEN BEING SUBTLE ABOUT IT PUTS HIM IN RUN AWAY LIKE A SCARED MORON MODE. And like I said massive smug insulting moron, arrogant moron, I, UNLIKE YOU, THINK FOR MYSELF, QUESTIONED MY OWN BELIEFS WITHOUT BIAS, UNLIKE YOU YOU HYPOCRITE. WHAT YOU ARE DESCRIBING IS ATHEISTS. I’VE NEVER MET, YOU MORON, A CALVNIST THAT ACTED LIKE THAT ASIAN, I’VE MET MORMONS, JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES, PAGANS, AND ATHEISTS WHO ACTED LIKE THAT, THEY ALL ACTED LIKE THAT, EVEN THE HATEFUL ONES THAT GO OUT OF THEIR WAY TO PERSECUTE YOU.
"because maybe, if they find they cannot believe in their faith anymore due to inconsistancy,"
You’re talking about atheists you inconsistant moron who couldn’t spell inconsistancy correctly, not Calvinists you moron. THINK MORON, DO AS YOU SAY, RATHER THAN EXPECTING EVERYONE ELSE TO DO IT YOU LEECH WHO LEECHES OFF THE PROGRESS AND GAIN OF THEISTS.
"human rights abuse etc,"
WHERE ARE THE BRACKETS MORON AND THE COMMA YOU LAZY-MINDED MORON? LAZY, LIKE THIS!: (human rights abuse, etc.). THE MENTALLY LAZY ONE IS YOU YOU HYPOCRITE! YOU ACCUSATION-MAKING HATE-MONGER HYPOCRITE! SO, WHAT WERE YOU SAYING ABOUT MASS MURDERING ATHEISTS LIKE POL POT, STALIN, THE ATHEIST MURDERERS RULING CHINA, ENSLAVING CHRISTIANS WHO WON’T OBEY THEIR ATHEIST VERSION OF CHRISTIANITY (YES THAT’S HOW NUTTY AND ABSURD AND ABSURDLY STUPID YOU ATHEISTS ARE, MAKING UP AN ATHEIST VERSION OF CHRISTIANITY AND EXPECTING CHRISTIANS WHO LOVE GOD TO OBEY IT LOL!), SO WHAT WERE YOU SAYING ABOUT THEM, YOU SUPER IGNORANT WHO LIVES IN A BUBBLE MADE OF YOUR DUMB ARROGANT OPINIONS? Dummy! You deserve an eternity of persecution for your deliberate hatred of those your kind killed in the name of "progress" and "harmony" and "peace" and "unity" and "survival (of the pleasure-addicted atheist fittest)". WHAT GROSS DEATH-DESERVING HYPOCRISY!
"what can they believe in?"
Moron they can believe in having "fun" and massacring people like your group has for fun and gain and survival and peace and harmony like your group has been doing ever since you took over Russia and the countries around you which did not want to submit to your "non-beliefs" you opinion-bashing (opinions are beliefs you blind morons), guess-bashing "fact" bashing pseudoscience bashing, blank-mindedness bashing morons (and there have even and have been violent Buddhists, ironically, though not so ironic if you account for their combat training.)
AND WYNONA THEN SAID, IN HER SMUG MOCKERY, HER FALSE "OPINION" WHICH SHE CALLS SO AS NOT TO OFFEND THEISTS SO BADLY, BUT WHICH SHE CLEARLY IS TEACHING AS A FACT:" What will fill that void and make them feel safe like religion does?"
Well moron, you atheists have shown the world repeatedly!: LYING, STEALING, ADULTERY, MURDER, COVETING, IDLENESS, PLAYING VIOLENT GAMES, MASSACRING, MONEY, PETS, EVEN SEX WITH PETS AND INCEST! (MEANWHILE YOU DUMB HYPOCRITE ATHEISTS WHO KNOW THAT ADAM AND EVE’S CHILDREN HAD SEX WITH ONE ANOTHER SCOFF AT CHRISTIANS FOR IT, AS IF GOD ISN’T THE ONE WHO IS THE LAW-GIVER, AND LIKE YOU ARE THE LAW-GIVERS, YOU ARROGANT HYPOCRITES), ENSLAVING, SLAVE-TRADING, HYPOCRISY, PANDERING, BABBLING, BEING DISORDERLY, ACTING LIKE KIDS WHO HAVE BEEN RAISED TO BE IMMORAL, EVERYTHING THAT IS AGAINST THAT OH SO TOTALLY BAD "RELIGION" YOU DUMB DUMBS. Oh what is that I hear? "Well we didn’t say the whole Bible was wrong," That came a little late you morons. And like you really believe that it’s always wrong to steal, lie, commit adultery, or to hate anyone in your heart, or at all wrong to hate anyone in your heart, sure you do you hypocrites, you hypocrites, you hypocrites, you liars, you immoral liars, everything you say is untrustworthy, because you avoid and hate truths which go against your beliefs.
THEN MORON WYNONA PREACHED: "[Praaaaaaise Darwin, evolutionary Big Diggity Bang Bang Bang, BANG BANG BANG EVOLUTION ABIOGENESIS JUST BELIEVE! *flits hands about like some moronic child*…] It’s a scary thought, losing your comfort, part of your identity [Amen? (crowd of atheist replies, "Amen, praise Darwin, praise humanistic science sista],"
Your’re projecting Wynona, atheists, meaning, you morons are describing yourselves, but are, in your baseless pride, and ignorance, pretending that it’s everyone else who isn’t an atheist who is like that.
Then Wynona the sicko moron said: "so they attack atheists"
Say what about Pol Pot, Stalin, the atheist government of China, Vietnam, North Korea, etc. (I know you love that "etc.": it’s so convenient for lazy-minded morons like yourself, especially since you’re devoid of facts). And say what about Calvinists? Got any dirt specifically on them? Ignoramus Why Not Nona?
Wynona Etc. then said, "because they represent the threat of indpendent thought"
Ur so right moron Wynona Etc., atheists just came up with their thoughts all on their own (you moron), and no one on the planet is thinking on their own, everyone else is controlling their mind, but wait, THAT’S A CONTRADICTION YOU MORON, BECAUSE IF NO ONE WHO IS RELIGIOUS IS THINKING ON THEIR OWN, THEN WHO THE HELL IS THINKING FOR THEM SO THAT THEY HAVE BELIEFS, YOU MORONS? OH WAIT! YOU ARE THE ONES CONTROLLING OUR MINDS SINCE YOU ARE INDEPENDENT THINKERS RIGHT? RIGHT LOL? YEAH, SURE, SCIENCE TRIUMPHS WITH STEPHEN HAWKING’S AMAZING 200 POINT IQ AGAIN! GOTTA LOVE THAT ALL POWERFUL MAGIC 200 POINT IQ NUMBER THAT RUBY THINKS CREATES, SUSTAINS, CONTROLS, SOLVES, AND CAN DESTROY ALL THINGS.
And everyone, notice how these moron atheists keep saying that they are GUESSING, yet they immediately afterwards imply that their guesses are factual statements,and with smug "patronizing" insults on top of it; clearly they are confused ignorant idiots and hypocrites.
"independent thought", is not "critical thinking" (was that too hard to express you morons?) but is instead HATEFUL REBELLION, HATEFUL ISOLATIONISM. It’s rejecting good advice and help and God. That’s your "independance", your not depending on God, which is futile, since he sustains all things and is constantly helping you to live. But if you keep up your hate, that will end one day, and you will instead burn in Hell forever. Not only do you morons misdefine words, you misdefine phrases, like "critical thought". "Independent", what a laugh. Have fun in the middle of a hot desert without relying on the help of anyone or any living thing. Be free, be independant, go to Hell. Stop despising love, "Love one another", "Love your enemy", "Do good to those who persecute you", "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your mind [who came up with those laws, which atheists did not, and persecuted or pretended to truly be in favor of]. You do know what "love" is in the context of those sentences, right atheists? Learn what "love" is and BE loving before you continue to accuse all Christians of being hateful. Then, with the log of hatred removed from one of your eyes, you will be able to remove the specks in the eye of the ones you pretend to be helping with your hate.
If "independent thought" = and endless switcheroo of the definition of opinion, guess, proof, evidence, and reality, you can keep it. I’ll stay rational, as the word is defined by us Christians, with our dictionaries, and not your nonexistent ones (or are you gonna try and copy us on that too and pretend you invented the diciontary and all English words lol, oh wait, you’re already trying with Wickedpedia and wiktionary).
And don’t you atheists know, that you’re just so unknown, when Christians like me, are endlessly replying to and refuting morons like you, and publishing what you said and our replies, in books and on the web? I once met a moron atheist who said to me over msn messenger (in a very childish way, and grammatically bad, big surprise): "Christians are lazy because they have way more websites than atheists)", no doubt to us Christians because we’re not isolationist war-mongering lazy morons like you, and busy our selves helping others, including by publishing refutations of morons like you, which morons like you sometimes post on (yet you claim the sites are waste of time, so what are you posting on them for?). Instead your morons come up with sites like Yahoo Answers, which is a Trojan Horse for bashing Calvinists and anti-communists, which they use to flood the web by baiting Christians with endless pages of "questions" in the form of insults, or just plain statements, which the moderators ignore in their hatred of Christians. You lazy scheming cheats with your hidden agendas. Sure you’re "unknown". Sure you’re unknown when you constantly attack Christians on the web with potshots because you’re too lazy and hateful to fill the web with anything useful like we do. You insult us as being lazy for our hard work; you make no sense at all you backwards morons, none.
And despite your arrogant deliberate stupidity and hypocrisy, despite you being refuted all around you, you, idiot Ruby, have the mind to say, "Where Have All The Great Minds Gone?" You’re so right moron, there are no great minds around, not even Stephen Hawking’s, NOT EVEN YOURS. OOOPS AGAIN, YOU REFUTED YOUR OWN SELF. You sure love to contradict and defeat yourself.
No wait, you the moron, with your negative 200 I.Q. and head buried in the sand of your own opinions about how great atheists are (cuz they make ur heart feel good) and your nutty, horribly worded pretentious speeches, are to be believed about their being no great minds around. By the way do you know who invented that IQ intelligence scoring system you oh so love to endorse through your god Stephen Hawking? Do you know what his religious beliefs were? Did you know, moron, that Stephen Hawking said, in your precious A Brief History of Time (and it’s one of the most famous and quoted statements in the book):
But if the universe is really completely self- contained, having no boundary or edge,
it would have neither beginning nor end: it would simply be.
What place, then, for a creator?
(pp. 140- 1)
SO MORON, NOT EVERYONE WHO CLAIMS THE BIG BANG AND EVOLUTION IS TRUE IS AN ATHEIST. STOP ASSUMING, IT’S STUPID.
Further. he is not sympathetic towards atheism. Now how do you feel about your hero, whom you slandered?
And how ironic, hypocritical, arrogant AND BIGOTED OF YOU to claim, that because Kirk Cameron doesn’t have an IQ of 200 or anything close to it, should not be heard, when you yourself are clearly a moron. SO EVIL MORON, YOU AND YOUR DUMB FRIENDS SHOULD NOT BE BELIEVED OR HEARD EITHER HUH? OOOPIE YOU FELL INTO YOUR OWN DUMB CONTRADICTORY PIT. FURTHER, SHOULD KIDS BE IGNORED TO YOU MORON? SO ACCORDING TO YOU MORON, KIDS SHOULD BE ABUSED AND NEGLECTED AND ONLY PEOPLE WHO ARE SAID TO HAVE VERY HIGH IQ’S SHOULD BE HEARD AND SHOULD RULE THE WORLD. YOU SUPER MORON! WHAT A SUPER MORONIC IGNORANT TEACHING!
THE FACT THAT YOU’RE ENDORSING HIM IN YOUR IMMORAL STATE AND STUPIDITY MAKES YOUR ENDORSEMENT SUSPECT YOU IDIOT! DUR! WHAT YOU DID IS LIKE HITLER ENDORSING STALIN AS BEING A GOOD MAN BECAUSE STALIN AGREES WITH HIM AND HITLER EXPECTING EVERYONE TO BELIEVE HIM. But maybe he was just hoping if he wasn’t as stupid as you.
On top of that Ruby, do you know what Stephen "200 IQ" Hawking’s "greatest" achievement was according to the world? You should know since you made it one of the center pieces of your rant against Christians. HINT: A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME. According to all the biographies on the web, it’s that book. And just how great is that book considered by people who are obviously wiser than you? Here’s one review from the anti-Christian dominated Amazon.com:
(1 Star Out of 5 Stars) 47 of 60 people found the following review helpful: A Poor Book, July 28, 2002 By Andrew (England)
This is a poor book. Stephen Hawking knows his stuff, but he is very bad at conveying that information to others. He doesn’t go into enough detail to allow the user to understand the physics behind the subject and consequently the book has a very "so-there", "Because it just is!!" quality to it. For example, Early in the book he states that time moves slower close to the gravitational field of a large object, like the earth. He doesn’t go into any detail, or explain this. I know that it it because gravity and acceleration are the same, and as einstien showed, going faster causes time to move slower. But if I wasn’t familiar with relativity I wouldn’t have understood this, and wouldn’t have felt that I had learned anything.
I hit problems at chapter 6, "Black Holes" because I know very little about them, and thus didn’t feel like could follow the chapter. The book has a reputation of being one in which people can’t get past the first few chapters. Well I think this is why.
A better example of a good way to learn a subject is through the books of Richard Dawkins. Upon reading his books I always come away with an excellant understanding of the topic. It’s a shame that this book wasn’t in a similar style.

Hawking’s story makes him a media favorite. The press (who know minimal physics if any) have for years given him the title "Greatest Physicist Since Einstein". He is an excellent physicist and a decent teacher but he is nowhere near being in the same league as Einstein, Newton or Maxwell. Paul Dirac and Richard Feynman are arguably the two most distinguished 20th Century physicists after Einstein. Ed Witten may be the most distinguished living physicist.
Richard Feynman (through his lectures transcribed on audiocassette/text formats and books) is perhaps physics’s greatest teacher for the layperson and expert alike. Feynman had an unmatched knack for explaining high level physics in an original way. His "Lectures on Physics" is a classic and should be on the bookshelves of all physicists. Feynman’s QED is the best non-mathematical description of quantum mechanics ever (QED stands for quantum electrodynamics, for which Feynman shared the Nobel Prize). His book, The Character of Physical Law, covers much of the same material as Brief History but is much clearer and more insightful. You won’t have to unlearn anything from Feynman’s books even if you decide to pursue a PhD in physics. I cannot say the same for Hawking’s books. Read reviews on these and Feynman’s other works. Also, Feynman lived an inspirational and incredibly rich life. He had the brains of Einstein, the showmanship of a performer (which made him a great teacher) and just a great love and wonder for life in general. Read reviews on "Surely You’re Joking, Mr Feynman" and "Genius: The Life and Science of Richard Feynman" for more details. You won’t regret it.
For those who want to read about what many physicists view as the best candidate for a "theory of everything", read The Elegant Universe by Brian Greene. Hyperspace by Michio Kaku is another great book of the same vane. For those interested in a complete description of physical law, read the Road To Reality by Roger Penrose.
(1 Star Out of 5 Stars) 33 of 49 people found the following review helpful: "A publishing phenomenon", September 27, 2000 By Jeremy Dunning-Davies (Hull,England.)
Hawking’s book "A Brief History of Time" can rightly be termed a publishing phenomenon. But why? It is not particularly well-written, contains some poor English and doesn’t answer questions it poses early on. As a popular science book, it compares unfavourably with those of Paul Davies and, as far as the subject matter is concerned, "The Primeval Universe" by Jayant Narlikar covers the material much more lucidly. So what is special about this book? For some reason, which is not identifiable immediately, Hawking has become almost a cult figure. This is surprising since he works in a highly abstract area of physics which is not readily understandable to the layperson, except, possibly, as science fiction. It is also true that Hawking has been portrayed as the greatest British scientist since Newton. But is this true? Unlike the theories of Newton, those of Hawking have not been verified as yet. However, criticism of these theories is, on occasion, stifled. A case in point is provided by the Bekenstein-Hawking expression for the entropy of a black hole. A major objection to this is that it violates the Second Law of Thermodynamics. Papers raising this have appeared in the scientific literature and none has been challenged. However, articles have been rejected for publication purely on the grounds that the end result disagreed with Hawking. This is puzzling but it may lead some to feel that Hawking has achieved a status in popular culture which has influenced his scientific standing. If this is so, it is certainly not his fault but it is not a healthy position for science. In the end, though, the fact remains that this book is a real publishing phenomenon but not one which is justified by its contents.
And how do other books compare to his according to people more intelligent than yourself? Let’s look!:

I loved this book!, August 26, 2002 By Jessica Karas (OH)
One of the most enjoyable books I’ve read. Ferris has sparked my new-found interest in science and physics. I liked this book even better than "A Brief History of Time".
(5 Stars) No better book on the history of science, September 26, 2001 By Kenneth Walker (Virginia Beach, VA USA)
Simply put, this is the best book on cosmology–in fact, the history of scientific thought itself–that I’ve ever read (and re-read!) Engrossing, poetic, insightful, with nary a math equation to get in the way, the book is breathtaking in its scope yet highly readable. Full of anecdotes about famous thinkers through the centuries, it leads the reader on an adventure into the minds of brilliant and eccentric trendsetters in science, while vividly presenting the ideas that changed our understanding of the cosmos.The author, well-versed in the latest cosmological theories as well as the historical precedences leading to modern-day science as we know it, presents it all with such panache that both the layman AND the scientifically astute will come away enchanted. Highly recommended for astronomy buffs as well as anyone interested in the fundamental foundations of science.

When Timothy Ferris decided to write a history of Cosmology he very nearly ended up with a book the size of the Cosmos itself. But for the final product, the result of twelve years of work, he pared three volumes of material down to a more manageable 500 pages. In so doing he has given us what must surely be one of the best books of popular science ever written. … (end of review)

Better than a "Brief History of Time" Hawking, October 16, 2008 By Jon Haas – See all my reviews
And here is a review for "A Guide to Quantum Living in the 21st Century":
(5 Stars) Better than a "Brief History of Time" Hawking, October 16, 2008 By Jon Haas
Unlike Hawking’s( A brief history of time; also a great book) that can make this subject sleepy; Dr Stirt has made this subject matter easy to read and get into the minds of those interested in the great works of quantum physics without having a Doctorate. At the same time such a person familiar with the meaning of Hawking’s, Einstein etc… can use reflective perception to take Quantations’ thoughts where they want to.
Once a reporter asked Einstein; if he "could sum up the theory of relativity in a paragraph or two". Einstein replied, "you would need to be a brilliant mathematician and then it would take at minimum a weekend to understand if you were really listening and working." Dr Stirt has introduced this subject to all to understand. You can enjoy several moments or days per page just thinking about his "quantations". A great book for all that are interested in the future of science. (end of review)
And yet A Brief History of Time is Mr, "200 IQ" Hawking’s greatest accomplishment. And in your massively dumb and ignorant mind, that trumps all the THOUSANDS of years of help Christians have ever done for the world, all the starving and needy people they helped and saved AND DIED FOR OUT OF LOVE, AND NOT FOR FAME, and all the scientific progress they put in, INCLUDING THAT OF THE "FATHER" OF MICROBIOLOGY, WHO WAS A CALVINIST. YOU ARE BLIND, WARPED, DELUDED AND COLD-HEARTED.
Can you figure out why Hawking’s book was so highly praised? IT’S BECAUSE HE WROTE IT WHEN HE WAS DISABLED YOU MORON, AND A PICTURE OF HIS DISABLED SELF IS ON THE FRONT COVER. NOW GUESS HOW THE MEDIA WOULD LOOK IF THEY PROMOTED IT MORON? THEY WOULD LOOK LIKE HOLY SAINTS AND LOVERS AND HELPERS OF THE DISABLED YOU GULLIBLE IDIOT. AND DO YOU THINK THAT PARENTS OF DISABLED CHILDREN, UPON SEEING A CLEARLY DISABLED HAWKINGS ON THE FRONT COVER, WOULD REALIZE THAT THEY COULD USE THIS BOOK TO INSPIRE THEIR OWN DISABLED CHILDREN AND TO SHOW THAT THEM THAT THEY CAN ACCOMPLISH "GREAT" THINGS LIKE HAWKINGS? DO YOU THINK THAT NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS FOR THE DISABLED MIGHT ALSO SEE THIS BOOK AS A GREAT WAY TO ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO DONATE TO THEIR ORGANIZATION SINCE IT DEMONSTRATES WHAT THE DISABLED CAN ACHIEVE OR THAT IT COULD BE USED TO INSPIRE THE DISABLED THEY ARE (OR SUPPOSEDLY ARE) HELPING? DO YOU THINK THAT THOSE PARENTS AND ORGANIZATIONS MIGHT THEN GIVE THE BOOK AN ARBITRARY FIVE STARS? DO YOU THINK THAT POSSIBLY HIS FRIENDS, BECAUSE THEY ARE HIS FRIENDS, MIGHT ALSO GIVE HIS BOOK AN ARBITRARY FIVE STARS, ESPECIALLY BECAUSE THEY FEEL SORRY FOR HIM BECAUSE HE IS DISABLED THE WAY HE IS? NOW HOW THE HELL WERE YOU NOT ABLE TO FIGURE SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS THAT OUT? YOU’RE DUMB!
But what if Ruby is so dumb she thinks that I’m just saying that to make her look bad, well look what I found after writing the above Ruby (and try to notice how many people agreed with the review if you can):
(2 Out of Five Stars) 26 of 29 people found the following review helpful: Interesting but uneven and frustrating, April 4, 2003, By A Customer
Are the praises for this book really recognition of Hawking’s accomplishments or that he achieved them despite his physical infirmities [Well what do you know someone observed the same thing that I did Ruby!] ? I approached this book years ago and was swiftly and completely lost. Years passed and I found a wonderful (if dated) primer, Knowledge and Wonder by Weisskopf. My success in understanding K&W (I get quantum physics now and can easily explain it to others) convinced me to reapproach `Brief History.’
The book remains for informed insiders; perhaps not the inner circle, but definitely `you gotta know it to get it.’ Hawking consistently gives very short descriptions of theories that he then refers to throughout the text, but in ways that have little to do with the aspects he defined and in fact require more complete information. For example, I was frustrated trying to use his explanation of the theory of general relativity (p 30) in re: subsequent references. Luckily, in the years between my earlier attempt and this reading, the web has burgeoned and I was able to find a more complete and yet still brief but comprehensible explanation of this theory. And oh my goodness, Hawking now made sense. Obviously the connection is clear in Hawking’s mind, but it never made the transition to words on the page.
Despite all, I *did* get it. But unfortunately, rather than finishing with a desire to learn more I am just tired and glad to be done with it. I feel like I subjected myself to a badly presented lecture series.
Hawking’s writing is poor. Ideas ramble, tangential information occasionally takes over so the actual subject at had gets lost, recapitulation is erratic. Some of the self-references are conspicuously self-serving. True, for a scientist it’s decent, but the book’s writing should not be judged by a different standard than any other writing. That’s what editors are for, and apparently this book’s editor was so overawed by Hawking that he forgot to do his job.
This book should not be iconized. Nor should it be touted as accessible to the layperson. The information is interesting, but you have to want it and work for it. And when you’re done, what you get may not have been worth the effort you put in. It was for me, but just barely. (end of review)
And again what a hypocrite you are Ms. "Options", Ms. "Moral", Ms. "I’m Tired of Being Called Bigot and Told To Shut Up For My Beliefs (But It’s Okay To Bash Christians), yet you think Christians like Kirk and I should be silenced, and for, OOOOOH NOOOO POOOR PERSECUTED YOU, HURTING YOU BY PUTTING UP A VIDEO OF KIRK EATING A BANANA. You dummy, you whiner, you moron, you absurd hate-baiter, you lying hypocrite.
Now back to the rest of what Wynona said in one reply, a.k.a. Miss "etc.":
Miss Etc. then said, "and possible challange to one’s one religious beliefs."
Is that babble supposed to be a serious challenge to Christians? A challEnge, HINT HINT? No, you’ll never defeat us with stupidity, oops with "wisdom", oops, with "guesses" oops, with "opinions" oops, with "proof" (man when will you guys get your, uh, your categories straight?)?
OMG, I SUDDENLY FEEL FEAR! I’M, I’M, OHHHH NOOOO, I’M QUESTIONING MY BELIEFS! I’M LOOKING UP THE MEANING OF A WORD IN A VERSE I THOUGHT I UNDERSTOOD TO SEE IF I UNDERSTOOD IT CORRECTLY AND IF IT WAS MISTRANSLATED AGAIN! OOOOOO FREAAAAKING NOOOOOOOOOO, I’M SHAKIN’ IN MAH BOOTS! AAHHHHHHH, MY SHIELD, MY FALSE RELIGIOUS SHIELD IS DISAPPEARING BECAUSE OF THE QUESTIONING, THEEEE QUEEESTIONING, THAT DREADED QUESTIONING, NOOOOOOO IT’S "INDEPENDANT THOUUUUUUGHT, I’M MELTING, OH THE HORROR, THE HORROR OF QUESTIONING. *Puts hand on forehead and leans back as if to faint with eyes closed* and falls on bed. You morons. How can you be so stupid? So ignorant of the utter obvious and utterly common things that go on in the easily observed lives of everyone who is both religious and not? How is that possible except that you are disgustingly lazy and self-centered, unless you are IMMORAL, EVIL?
YOU ATHEISTS, EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU, IS DUMB AND UNTRUSTWORTHY, PERIOD. EVEN TESLA DID HIMSELF IN, THAT "GENIUS". Despite having one of the greatest brains ever made, he became more and more of a self-obsessed vain monster.
As for your "What The Bible Really Says About Abortion (part 1)" post Ruby, clearly your not expert in what God says, but an expert in airing your own opinions. Stop cluttering the web with information that has already been posted, which is far superior to yours. Listen to that idiot who said it’s lazy to post so many sites, which is true in your case, since you rant when you write. And God has something to say about you quoting him, and your attempt to teach his word (yes, I’m going to quote the Bible! Oh, I guess that means I don’t have "independent thought, that must mean that neither does anyone else who quotes something it says which agrees with their beliefs, like, "forgive" and "MAKE A RIGHT JUDGMENT":
"What right have you to recite my laws
or take my covenant on your lips?
You hate my instruction
and cast my words behind you.
When you see a thief, you join with him;
you throw in your lot with adulterers.
You use your mouth for evil
and harness your tongue to deceit.
You speak continually against your brother
For those of you who are wondering why I wrote this reply with the anger that I did when what the people said on the sites I pointed out weren’t as bad as some other very bad sites (I can think of a few such sites), it was because of all the dumb comments combined, not just because of what they said by themselves, and because they supported each other’s stupid comments, so it was a "group rant" you could say. Atheists are organized when it comes to this: being stupid and supporting each other’s attacks against the religious (in general).
But God bless you evil ones, may he save you, I said a prayer for you, and will try to do so again. You need all the help you can get to survive among us mentally and spiritually fitter Christians.
