'Let Him Burn in Hell': Religious Conservatives React to Stephen Hawking's Death

Hawking attended the University of Cambridge, where he obtained his Ph.D.in 1965.

Hawking had his wheelchair at full throttle.

The brilliant physicist and cosmologist Stephen Hawking, inspiration and author of so many works - most famously, perhaps, A Brief History of Time - died today at 76.

In an interview with The Guardian in 2011, Hawking also shared his view on life, death and what comes next.

He said: 'I was fortunate enough to be invited along to his birthday party last year - both the public event and then the private party back at his house after.

He was diagnosed with motor neurone disease in 1963, at the aged of 21.

"Keeping an active mind has been vital to my survival, as has maintaining a sense of humor", Hawking said in a 2013 documentary. He made several appearances on TV shows like "Big Bang Theory", "The Simpsons", and "Star Trek". He was able to move only a few fingers on one hand and was completely dependent on others or on technology for virtually everything - bathing, dressing, eating, even speech. The world mourns his death not because black holes and physics are so cool (though they are), but rather as a testament to to the power of science - of our mental abilities to study the universe and understand even just a piece of it. He was also no stranger to the networks, having participated in numerous projects for us, including INTO THE UNIVERSE WITH STEPHEN HAWKING, which was nominated for two Emmys. Seeing the film has given me the opportunity to reflect on my life.

Despite being a prominent atheist, Hawking met with four popes, and the Vatican issued a statement saying it was "deeply saddened" by the news. He spent time with ALS sufferers so he could be authentic. This is the equivalent of that.

In a tribute penned about the iconic scientist on Daily Mail, Morgan wrote that ALS is "an incurable affliction that attacks every part of the body, rendering victims incapable of walking, talking, eating or drinking unaided". "He's certainly an outlier".

"My original aim was to write a book that would sell on airport bookstalls", he told reporters at the time". In September 2016 Hawking joined 375 "concerned" scientists in penning an open letter criticizing then-presidential candidate Donald Trump, citing the threat of climate change and blasting his push for the US to leave the Paris Accord. People usually find out that they have it between 55 and 75 years of age.

Hawking is survived by three children - Robert, Lucy and Timothy - from his first marriage to Jane Wilde, and three grandchildren.

He displayed the same wit off-screen.

"Each generation stands on the shoulders of those who have gone before them, just as I did as a young PhD student in Cambridge, inspired by the work of Isaac Newton, James Clerk Maxwell, and Albert Einstein".

Eddie Redmayne portrays Professor Hawking from the early 1960s to the 1980s.

Hawking and Mason divorced in 2006. Bottles were poured out, balloons strung around the room.

"Hawking was also a caring person". But I think it would be a great mistake.
