Stephen Hawking was one of the smartest people in the world and an internationally recognised expert on black holes. Hawking helped progress the Big Bang Theory, though the theory existed well before his time. He was the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge, a post once held by Isaac Newton, and was the only person to play himself on Star Trek (albeit as a hologram). For over half a century, Hawking lived with ALS, a disease that often kills within a few years after initial diagnosis.

Sickness and disabilityEdit

I wouldn't be here today if it were not for the NHS,I have received a large amount of high-quality treatment without which I would not have survived.
— Stephen Hawking[1]
Hawking was a prime example of how universal health care can actually work. Having lived under the National Health Service when he was stricken with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS; also known as Gehrig's Disease), he survived and became one of the world's most distinguished scientists. In an editorial appearing in Investor's Business Daily an attempt was made to use him as an example of how universal health care is bad, saying he would have died under the NHS; they did not do enough research to determine that Hawking lived under the NHS during most of his life (Hawking was born in 1942 the NHS was established in 1948 well before Hawking became sick). Hawking died in March 2018 and was a fierce defender of the NHS, stating he would not have survived without it.

Conservatives on Stephen HawkingEdit

The reason many Conservatives hated Hawking is because by using science and reason, two things Conservatives hate. He had shown God is unnecessary to explain things. Hawking was atheist or possibly a pantheist. [2] The Andersonites, most especially Ben the Baptist, a key member of the cult, celebrated Hawking's death [3].
