Hacking Hawkings

I hereby launch a conspiracy theory into the wild.

Respected theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking has a degenerative muscle disease that means he communicates with the aid of a machine.

In recent weeks Hawking has made two slightly controversial claims – claims that if not made by a respected theoretical physicist would be laughed off as science fiction. Firstly, he claimed that we shouldn’t seek aliens out because they’re unlikely to be friendly. Secondly, he suggested that time travel is possible under certain parameters.

I think that it is plausible that some science fiction geeks have hacked into Hawking’s computerised voice box forcing him to make such outlandish claims.

Nathan runs St Eutychus. He loves Jesus. His wife. His daughter. His son. His other daughter. His dog. Coffee. And the Internet. He is the pastor of City South Presbyterian Church, a church in Brisbane, a graduate of Queensland Theological College (M. Div) and the Queensland University of Technology (B. Journ). He spent a significant portion of his pre-ministry-as-a-full-time-job life working in Public Relations, and now loves promoting Jesus in Brisbane and online. He can't believe how great it is that people pay him to talk and think about Jesus. If you'd like to support his writing financially you can do that by giving to his church.

  1. What’s the law with regard to dragging photo’s to your blog like you’ve done here?

  2. Good question…

    I don’t know what the law is. It seems generally acceptable to do so if you include a link to the source (which I have – it’s from one of those articles)…

    I probably should caption it or acknowledge the source.

  3. I’m having trouble understanding why either of these things would be laughed at?

  4. If you believe in time travelling aliens who are out to get us perhaps you should be worried about your academic tenure afterall…

    I guess a case could be made for Jesus being a time travelling alien…

  5. Actually Stephen Hawking has been replaced by an alien. That’s how he knows aliens will not be friendly. He comes from a planet with very low gravity which is why he can’t move a muscle here.
