Spotting Fake News

In This Example The Fakes Use Prof. Dr. Stephen Hawking To Promote Their ProductFakeNews1-Hawking

Prof. Dr. Stephen Hawking (letters) is a globally-recognized face, identified as the foremost promoter of Big Bang Cosmology.  On March 7, 2017, this image with Wolf Blitzer of CNN on the left and Prof. Dr. Stephen Hawking on the right, claims that it has “Breaking News.”  This image can be see in its original 100% size by clicking here or on the image itself.

  1.  What is “breaking” about it? Nothing. It is also a lie. We do not have 100% access to the brain.
  2.  Why picture Wolf and credit Anderson Cooper?
  3.  Look at the URL.  Is this really a Forbes article?  No. They’ve also used Forbes Magazine as well.
  4. They credit “Harvard Scientists” but have no references.
  5. The article is a “Special Editorial” by Jon Stewart from Forbes. That is not true.
  6. Did Tom Brady or Kanye West or Johnny Depp or anybody actually participate? Probably not.
  7. Now, if we really want to get into it, one would do a deep analysis of the URL,, It is probably rather difficult to track down.

Here is a very real Forbes article about this phenomenon from 2015  (new window).  The author, Matthew Herper, is real and his articles are well-researched.  Liars, cheaters, short-cut cons and other deviants have been living in our midst since our earliest beginnings.


This page is part of our analysis of cognitive dissonance which began on March 11, 2017.

Below is point #4 from that article:

The Big Bang Theory Versus Simple Logic

Fake News Uses The Good Name of Stephen Hawking To Promote A Phony Pill: Stephen Hawking Predicts, “This pill will change humanity.”

Liars lie and cheaters cheat. Here, a group of liars and cheaters, create cognitive dissonance. Everything they say in this article is a lie. I was so moved by their lying that I sent an email to Prof. Dr. Steven Hawking to advise him of their abuse. The tragedy, perhaps more like a comic farce, is that Hawking promulgates one of the most fundamental pieces of disinformation that opens the world to the nihilism that begets cognitive dissonance.

The Letter (Email):

Dear Prof. Dr. Hawking:

The Substance of the Communication:

“Heads-up! A group promoting Synagen IQ (a pill), is using your image and name. I was initially fooled by it all then realized that you and your team were being used and were not complicit with this announcement. It is part of an ever-growing ethical breakdown of the people on this planet.

“Excuse me as I observe, ‘Big bang nihilism has taken hold.’ You know better than anyone that continuity and symmetry are the bedrocks of logic, mathematics, and physics.  However, for the past 100 years we’ve been focused on particles, not the mathematics of continuity. Of course, there are continuity equations from the Planck scale to the Age of the Universe using base-2, base-10 or any other base.  But base-2 is most organic. And, organic is good.

“In the chart of that progression — — you can follow how the simple logic of continuity applied here creates a lovely simulation program that mimics the big bang epochs yet through an all-natural, organic inflation. Cognitive dissonance works against accepting its simplicity, especially in light of 52 years of our ever-so intense study of particles.

“This Synagen abuse is emblematic of all the discontinuities we find within flawed belief systems.  Big bang cosmology is flawed. A more simple model of the universe where continuity and symmetry are re-established might bring some sanity back on this earth. What do you think?  Best wishes, Bruce”

“I do not expect any reply, notwithstanding, I would be delighted if there was!
