Lies About Physics

Just about every popular book and magazine article about physics contains at least one lie or extremely incorrect fact. The physicists usually know the lies, the magazine writers are usually just ignorant of the facts. Here’s one very good example of a physicist, now dead who can not sue me, who told a whopper. Nothing Hawking ever did has ever been proven correct so it’s hard to understand why he has so many admirers. Something about saying something nasty about a man in a wheelchair, probably. By the way, his ex-wife wrote a great book about him that wasn’t very flattering.
