Stephen Hawking Submitted a question to Yahoo Answers:
He has so far recieved over 24 thousand answers, with 12 days left to go. I don't know if he intends to sort through those answers, or if he only asked to provoke discussion, but for me, that would be too much information to handle.
I think he deserves an answer, and I think we deserve an answer.
Many of the answers he got were good, many were simple, many were wrong. Of the ones I read, only a few tried to address the complexity and the seriousness of the issues that Dr. Hawking brought up. Those that did try were short works by individuals, so providing a complete answer would be impossible. The aggregate of al the provided answers may contain the makings of a complete plan, but again, how does one sort through tens of thousands of answers?
This is an attempt to provide Stephen Hawking with a complete and coherent answer.
