Publisher's note: I find it very interesting that Stephen Hawking has reversed his position on this issue; I also see it as a sign that perhaps some of the rebuttals of his claims by Ravi Zacharias are starting to take hold. Time will tell.
Fox News: Stephen Hawking now says there are no black holes, doing an about-face on the objects that helped cement his reputation as the world’s preeminent scientist, New Scientist reports.
In 1974, Hawking took a black hole theory and added quantum mechanics, sparking a debate that rages to this day.
But now, after a bet with another physicist, Hawking says things may be able to escape from black holes.
According to New Scientist, Hawking originally said that when a black hole dies, it takes everything inside with it. Now, 40 years later, he is arguing that it might be possible for light and information to escape.
