New Post: "A Speaker for Stephen Hawking (1942-2018)" on "The American Catholic"

Hello all!   A new post on "The American Catholic:"  A Speaker for Stephen Hawking (1942-2018).   This is a review of (mainly) Stephen Hawkings scientific career and, as a sideline, of the change of his views on how science is done and on belief in God.  The title comes from Orson Scott Card's "Speaker for the Dead," in which the hero, Ender Wiggins ("Ender's Game") travels the galaxy giving talks about the dead that are not conventional eulogies but honest appraisals of the deceased, talks that ultimately give more comfort to the grieving than a eulogy.
