Early last year I reviewed The Physics of the Oozlum Bird.
The Physics of the Oozlum Bird is intriguing because it has the ability to fly around in ever-decreasing circles until it disappears [with an almighty big bang] into a black hole.
The Physics of the Oozlum Bird was first observed in 1858 when it was deemed to have evolved from the more prosaic turdus merula [aka blackbird].
The review of The Physics of the Oozlum Bird followed the announcement by Miles Mathis that Stephen Hawking had effectively signalled the End of Modern Physics [no flowers].
Although this paper is important as a bellwether in the collapse of Modern Physics, as a piece of science it is . . . well, not one.
Others are saying Hawking is suffering from Alzheimer’s or something, but that isn’t my interpretation.
As I have said, these top theorists like Hawking have been manufacturing controversy for almost a century as misdirection, and I read this paper as simply more misdirection.
They had already mucked up this black hole math to such an extent 50 years ago that no one could ever unwind it, and have continued to stir it since.
They contradict themselves on purpose.
They want you so confused that you eventually just accept whatever you are told.
They don’t want to solve these problems, they want them as permanent open questions, to lure all the armchair physicists, philosophers, and psychologists, who can debate the finer points and keep the magazines and journals properly inflated.
You see, this black hole debate is a species of divertissement, akin to the old “angels dancing on the head of a pin” debate.
Science is no longer science, it is anti-science dressing itself in the garb of science in order to obtain maximum funding.
Like art and all other modern things, it is the polar opposite of that which it claims to be.
Its function is financial.
Its function is not to solve problems, but to entrench them.
Let me put it is this way: we can tell by the arc of science since 1900 that most working physicists prefer a paycheck to good science, since if they didn’t, we wouldn’t be where we are.
Stephen Hawking Signals the End of Modern Physics – Miles Mathis
In fact, 2014 appears to have been a busy year for Stephen Hawking because Hilton Ratcliffe subsequently announced the beginning of the end of his apparel when he claimed Stephen Hawking Smoked My Socks.
Muse Harbor Publishing launches controversial book, “Stephen Hawking Smoked My Socks” by noted dissident mathematician, astrophysicist and author Hilton Ratcliffe.
Loved by some and reviled by others for challenging the scientific powers that be, Ratcliffe examines the sociology of belief, dissecting the almost impenetrable layer of belief that protects our opinions and convictions, and offers a novel method for revealing objective truth in any and all fields of enquiry.
“Stephen Hawking Smoked My Socks is a prism-free lens with which forgotten basic skills in objectivity are seen again, and the innate art of existence is set free from the dictates of fear and power.” Ian Campbell-Gillies
Why did Stephen Hawking become so famous?
What exactly brought world renown to Albert Einstein?
Why are those particular individuals household names across the globe whilst other achievers are not; why have they become icons to rival film stars; and why they are adored and protected by a fiercely loyal fan base?
In Stephen Hawking Smoked My Socks, Hilton Ratcliffe seeks out the answers to those questions, and discovers that they have nothing at all to do with science.
Well it’s another year and there’s another science topic to review.
The Science de Jour is The Physics of the Phoenix.
In Greek mythology, a phoenix or phenix is a long-lived bird that is cyclically regenerated or reborn.
Associated with the sun, a phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor.
The phoenix was subsequently adopted as a symbol in Early Christianity.
While the phoenix typically dies in a show of flames and combustion, in most versions of the legend, there are less popular versions of the myth in which the mythical bird dies and simply decomposes before being born again.
This review [strangely enough] follows the announcement by Miles Mathis that Stephen Hawking made his final trip to The Great Black Hole in the Sky in the 1980s and was not so much “cyclically regenerated” but more cynically regenerated as the Phoenix of Physics so he could pen such classics as A Brief History of Time , A Briefer History of Time  and the unforgettable The Universe in a Nutshell .
The Universe in a Nutshell is one of Stephen Hawking’s books on theoretical physics.
It explains to a general audience various matters relating to the Lucasian professor’s work, such as Gödel’s Incompleteness Theorem and P-branes (part of superstring theory in quantum mechanics).
It tells the history and principles of modern physics.
He brings us behind the scenes of the most intellectual tales as he seeks to “combine Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity and Richard Feynman’s idea of multiple histories into one complete unified theory that will describe everything that happens in the universe.”
This year’s announcement by Miles Mathis signals a departure from his usual mathematical musings because he appears [at last] to have adopted [or adapted – depending upon your point of view] the observational techniques associated with the Scientific Method [aka Deprecated Science in the modern idiom].
Actually, that is the replacement.
That isn’t Hawking, as I hope you can see now that I point it out.
Go back two photos and compare the teeth directly.
Not even close.
They found a guy with the same nose and big ears, but otherwise they don’t look that much alike.
This is the guy you have been looking at for the past thirty years.
Which means Hawking might not have written A Brief History of Time, which came out in 1988.
I haven’t pinpointed the date, but that was about the time they made the switch.
My current guess is early 80’s, which – if true – would mean that book was a forgery.
You will say, “That is just a younger Hawking, before he lost those lower teeth.”
No, it isn’t.
I just showed you the younger Hawking, and he didn’t look like that.
Compare them side by side.
Besides, the first picture is Hawking from the 1970’s.
The second is Hawking from the 1990’s.
Amazing that he aged 20 years with a debilitating disease and got younger looking at the same time, isn’t it?
Stephen Hawking died and has been replaced – Miles Mathis – 17 April 2015
Stephen William Hawking CH CBE FRS FRSA (born 8 January 1942) is an English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, author and Director of Research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology within the University of Cambridge.
His scientific works include a collaboration with Roger Penrose on gravitational singularity theorems in the framework of general relativity, and the theoretical prediction that black holes emit radiation, often called Hawking radiation.
Hawking was the first to set forth a theory of cosmology explained by a union of the general theory of relativity and quantum mechanics.
He is a vigorous supporter of the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics.
If you doubt the analysis of Miles Mathis then he [laudably] recommends you “do your own”.
If you doubt my analysis, do your own.
This is how things now work, and if you want to know something, you have to research it and make your own decision.
Which is why I don’t mind putting this on my science site.
That is what science is, after all.
Not accepting someone else’s decision – which would be belief by hearsay or reputation.
Science is studying the facts yourself and coming to your own conclusions.
You cannot do science second hand.
You can learn from a teacher, but ultimately you have to be your own scientist.

Personally, I find the announcements made by Miles Mathis and Hilton Ratcliffe equally credible.
This posting may [or may not] appear in a forthcoming tome entitled:
An Even Briefer History of Life, the Universe and Everything [including Time] in a Nutcase.
