BBC Newsnight - Professor Stephen Hawking

September 8, 2010 on BBC Two
The Grand Design


  1. Anyone else find the constant, "Are you keeping up?/It's hard to get my head around it!" really patronising? Sure, I know very little about theoretical physics past documentories etc., and nothing past high school maths, but they didn't go much further than simply naming theories, so what exactly was meant to be so hard for us to understand? This sort of thing really doesn't help the public belief that science and maths are far too complicated for a 'normal' person to understand....

  2. Plus the mentioning of differend "worldviews" as an eufemism for religion who have absolutely no autority over physics whatsoever.
