Quote of the Day - Stephen Hawking

In 2011 at Google's Zeitgeist Conference, physicist and cosmologist Stephen Hawking declared:
“Most of us don't worry about these questions most of the time. But almost all of us must sometimes wonder: Why are we here? Where do we come from? Traditionally, these are questions for philosophy, but philosophy is dead. Philosophers have not kept up with modern developments in science. Particularly physics. Scientists have become the bearers of the torch of discovery in our quest for knowledge.” 
In speaking thus, Stephen Hawking transformed himself into a philosopher.
