Notice how when they want to use what scientists say they are respected, in contrast to their being blinded by Satan atheists when what they say isn't what they want. I also thought it was interested they would say "Type the phrase "end of the world" and the year "2012" into one popular Internet search engine". I thought they want to discourage use of the internet. Do they really want them to peruse About 10,200,000 results (0.17 seconds) wouldn't that take to much time away from bible study and preaching the good news?
And i am sure some porn site would pop up and grab them.
this from the august 1st public watch tower - Respected scientists, such as Stephen Hawking, professor emeritus at the University
of Cambridge, and Sir Martin Rees, Master of Trinity College at the University of Cambridge,
echo those stark warnings. They feel that mismanagement of technology and the human impact on
the environment may irreversibly change life on earth or even end civilization.
Predictions of doom worry millions. Type the phrase "end of the world" and the year "2012"
into one popular Internet search engine, and you will discover hundreds of pages of speculation
about the end coming in that year. Why so? An ancient Maya calendar, known as "the Long
Count," is calculated to end in the year 2012. Many fear that this somehow signals the end of
civilization as we know it.
Religious views Hawking takes an agnostic position on matters of religion.  He has repeatedly used the word "God" (in metaphorical meanings)  to illustrate points made in his books and public speeches. His ex-wife, Jane, however, said during their divorce proceedings that he was an atheist.  Hawking has stated that he is "not religious in the normal sense" and he believes that "the universe is governed by the laws of science. The laws may have been decreed by God, but God does not intervene to break the laws."  Hawking compared religion and science in 2010, saying: "There is a fundamental difference between religion, which is based on authority, [and] science, which is based on observation and reason. Science will win because it works."
