    I lost my respect for Hawking 2-3 years ago, when he declared that "there is no G-D"! That to me is more shocking than his boycott of Israel !! Let me remnd you that the Torah says: "fear of G-D is the beginning of wisdom". Yes, I have read his book "The Brief History of Time" and I have also read the book "Cosmos" by Carl Sagan whom I prefer. In his interpretation of time Hawking says: "G-D can be considered necessary for as long as we believe that everything has had a beginning, but if the Universe is limitless, it has no beginning and no end and that zeros the existence of G-D, for what 'd G-D be needed for"? I disagree with Hawking, who openly is a self-proclaimed atheist scientist. In my opinion the laws of physics, which prevail thus far in all of the Universe, witness alone of G-D: that is in other words that there is a greater intelligence behind all Creation, behind the wonders of the Universe, not only behind the miracle of life on Earth. I am a bit amused that Israel is "beside herself" with Hawking's academic boycott of Israel. What did you expect?
