Infamous for re-evaluating his position in light of new facts, Stephen Hawking has now flip-flopped on his position regarding the ability of information to escape from the clutches of a black hole. Thirty years ago he held it was impossible, now he says it's possible that SOME information may be able to escape.
Who is this guy that he is unable to hold onto his position regardless of facts? Can he be trusted about ANYTHING if he re-evaluates EVERYTHING based upon new information!?!?!?
