Stephen Hawking doesn't live in America.

Yes, I too noticed that. This is not the first time. For some reason, there is this persistent belief that Hawking is American. I suppose that since he speaks through a voice synthesizer, the accent clue is missing.

Shalom Mano,

On Hawking, he has joked that it upsets him that his voice synthesizer has an American accent.

The video should have stopped at the midpoint after it had illustrated who America's atheists are. The second half is disingenuous at best. The problems in the countries shown are not as a result of a dearth of atheists.

B'shalom,

Jeff
