Steven Hawking's Brother

Steven Hawking's Brother
Anyone hear about Steven Hawking's brother supposedly having an out-of-body or near-death experience that caused him to change his beliefs about god, death and so forth?

Well now we know why one brother is a world renowned scientist  and the other is not

Not true. Google it.
"When life begins, we are tender and weak.
When life ends, we are stiff and rigid.
All things, including the grass and the trees,
Are soft and pliable in life, dry and brittle in death.
So the soft and supple are the companions of life,
Whilst the stiff and unyielding are the companions of death.
An army that cannot yield will be defeated.
A tree that cannot bend will crack in the wind.
Thus, by nature's own decree,
The hard and strong are defeated,
Whilst the soft and gentle are triumphant."

If it were true, it would clearly mean that Hawkings is simply and stupidly wrong about piddly stuff like time and gravity. Because - as we all know - what your brother claims invalidates whatever YOU claim.

Oh right, yeah. Obvious, when you think about it.

Well, that's atheism over then, I guess. We had a good run, yeah? I suppose I'll just say "kinda lingers" and be off home then. Can the last one out turn the lights off and lock up?

Edward Hawking?  I don't think he's known for anything.  He doesn't even have a wikipedia page.  The only thing that's known about him was that he was adopted into the Hawking Family.  According to Stephen he was non-intellectual and non-academic. 

I don't get these sort of arguments.  I mean if the Pope had a brother who was an atheist... does that improve his credibility?

They are different people with different life experiences, level of education and beliefs.
Opinions are like arseholes.
Once somethings firmly in there its very hard to dislodge.

About time Stim... The lack of mental gymnastics all these years has made me unfit and lerthargic!
