Stephen Hawking is one of the smartest people in the world and an internationally recognised expert on black holes. Hawking helped develop the Big Bang Theory, though the theory existed well before his time. He is the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge, a post once held by Isaac Newton, and he is the only person to play himself on Star Trek (albeit as a hologram).
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
Hawking is an example of how universal health care can actually work. Having lived under the National Health Service when he was stricken with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, he survived and has since become 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 most of his life (Hawking was born in 1942 the NHS was established in 1948 well before Hawking became sick). Hawking is still alive  and is a fierce defender of the NHS, stating he would not have survived without it.
Conservatives on Stephen HawkingEdit
The reason many Conservatives hate Hawking is because by using science and reason, two things Conservatives hate, he has shown God is unnecessary to explain things. Hawking is an atheist or possibly a pantheist.
