I bet you that if you asked Stephen Hawking himself, he'd like the idea of a machine body for himself.

I think he's more like Davros than Darth Vader.

ekdikeo4: Rob Zombie. More Human than Human pales in comparison to anything White Zombie. For that matter, everything Rob Zombie has done since White Zombie combined together doesn't equal one White Zombie measure.

Ummm... hate to break it to you, dude...

Has anyone asked what Dr Hawking thinks about the comments? Or is everyone just enjoying vicarious outrage?

One of cartoonist Gary Larson's more famous cartoons shows two chimpanzees grooming. One finds a blonde human hair on the other and inquires, "Conducting a little more 'research' with that Jane Goodall tramp?" Goodall herself was in Africa at the time, and the Jane Goodall Institute thought this was in bad taste, and had their lawyers draft a letter to Larson and his distribution syndicate, in which they described the cartoon as an "atrocity". They were stymied by Goodall herself when she returned and saw the cartoon, as she stated that she found the cartoon amusing. Since then, all profits from sales of a shirt featuring this cartoon go to the Jane Goodall Institute. Goodall wrote a preface to The Far Side Gallery 5, detailing her version of the controversy, and the Institute's letter was included next to the cartoon in the complete Far Side collection. She praised Larson's creative ideas, which often compare and contrast the behavior of humans and animals.

MrEricSir: Damn it, you don't have to be made of metal and plastic to be a machine. We're ALL machines, we just happen to be made of organic compounds.

The Dead do not 'shoo-bop-a-loo-ah'.

Should have described him as "More Human Than Human".

I find your lack of faith in quantum physics disturbing.
