  • my dad was like that, i remember as a kid at dinner time we talked about science and nature and if i ever needed to ask anything id have an answer not only told but a diagram of a black hole drawn on a piece of paper, he also scored genius on his iq test but he was always very introverted. im glad i had that growing up because it shaped my brain to be open to everything and agnostic and to look for answers myself rather than accept what im told

  • How did he manage to have kids, before he was disabled? He incarnated to be a genius without a working body on purpose. They chose to leave when their family is gone on purpose. He really was inspirational as i became disabled i was in awe how he did it,how he coped with being so disabled. i dont think i could cope with it. Id need to leave to other side.

  • What a wonderful lovely daughter Stephen had. Of all his tremendous successes I think she must be the greatest. I also think she is tremendously brave being able to speak so expressively so soon after his death. My heart goes out to her. I could not have done that after my Dad died. I couldn’t talk about him for a very long time.

  • A long-time hospice nurse told me that fathers often passed away when their daughters were not present. They were much more likely to pass away in the presence of a son. Later, when my own father was terminally ill, it happened to us. I had been with my father constantly and my brothers had been away. When they returned, I went home for a few hours to rest and got a phone call in the night telling me that Dad had passed away. The same thing happened when my father-in-law passed away. His two sons and daughter were alternating staying with him at the hospital. He passed away when his two sons were with him and his daughter had gone home to rest. It was interesting to hear this had happened with Stephen Hawkin and his daughter.

    • You don't have to be ickle baby daddy's girl all your life to have an emotional attachment to your father. But you can imagine how many interviews and times she has had to say all of this in just a few weeks. My mother was killed by a drunk driver so it was very public and the press was all over. Then came the trial, then the verdict, then the sentencing and for two years, every time I was at the courtroom and the press grabbed me, I was answering the same things over and over again. By the second week, all the questions were the same, I could almost shut my mind off and turn on a recording so I'm sure you'd think I had no emotional attachment. I had a lot of emotional attachment to my mum, just not to anyone else.

    • He lets her have her time, and he validates her. Are you British? If so he may come across as too forthright and direct to the point of invasiveness to British ears, but that isn't the case for most of the rest of the world. To most of the rest of the world, what sounds uninvasive to Brits sounds standoffish to non-Brits. She would understand that, and she's able to handle it. She wouldn't have agreed to the interview if not, but more than that, she's a journalist herself so she knows what it's like and how to deal with it.

    • Concerning Theoretical Physics: not so much about being a 16 yr old female. He thought mathematically about the universe, that's it. George Washington Carver thought about dirt and paint. Both are revered geniuses in their perspective disciplines. High achievement in one area, doesn't necessarily indicate all around success.

    • @pushkinkimok It is strange. I just stumbled on this article, and found it intriguing. I don't find in a religious "caught you believing at the end". A church is a great civic place to celebrate births, weddings and funerals, whether atheist or any shade of believer from "maybe" to "devout". What I find really weird is the comment section. How can people end up fighting on the comments section? Express a view, sure. Become confrontational: really? I think his daughter's insights into one of the stellar intellectual lives of our time is absolute gold-dust. We cannot all be intellects, but we can share the "normal" part as well as we can to reflect on our own existence to do our best, whatever the challenge placed on us. All of us face challenges at one time or another: Few as extreme as SH faced down so nobly.

    • @Andrew Good other way around. God made man in His image. Look at how amazingly and precisely are we made, from dna to our minds. It can't be product of some explosion, chaos can't produce perfect living organisms or even living for that matter. There is no proof on evolution there are no living "primitive humans" nor there are modern humans who are evolving. Just look at the universe and solar system, all the galaxies or amazing creations here on on earth it's no coincidence. People have been experiencing same spiritual for thousands of years but science won't admit that because they base everything of physical proof. But just try to seek out Jesus and you'll be very surprised once your prayer gets answered. Or even if you don't you'll be very surprised negatively once you die and realize that we weren't on earth by chance or without reason-life purpose that many seek. Our life here is like test which will determine our afterlife-our eternity. So our purpose here is to find Creator and have relationship with Him as well as spread the truth of Him/Gospel to others. So know that Jesus sacrifices Himself so that if you accept and believe in Him you'll have eternal life in heaven. Otherways if you reject Jesus in this life that decision will be implied in your afterlife. So be wise and don't be deceived, biggest accomplishment od devil is to make people believe that spiritual isn't real so that they wouldn't be saved by beleiveing in Jesus

    • An intelligent man can't deny a creator, we have no proof one way or the other. What we can gleam with indisputable truth, from fact to fiction, is that the god we believe in is not the right one, the "intended" one. Man made God in his own image. God was entirely made up by us to make sense of our existence. and that fact is rather cool upon itself!
