    Eh is this another gotcha? The speed of light in vacuum (and interstellar space is pretty close to that) is by definition fixed at 299 792 458m/s.

    No gotcha. Just something I read a while back. My earlier interest in physics makes me focus on that sort of thing. A more recent link

    Unproven hypothesis by an extreme minority of physicists. Not something that should be presented as a given.

    I scrutinized what they were doing. But yeah. Point taken.

    Speed of light should be renamed to Speed of causality.

    Any massless particle goes at c by definition, they HAVE to go that speed. Physics and Quantum mechanics be weird.

    Why didn't I correct you? Because I'm used to people being wrong about basic things, and it has no bearing on the broader argument. I also barely read your posts because they're painful to read. There's no point in intentionally making mistakes. I'll just think you're an idiot.

    BTW, carbon isn't the only molecule that can form infinite chains with itself. Instead of making baseless assertions, how about you actually reference something? You're the one making the assertions. Back them up with something besides stuff taken directly out of your asshole?

    Also, stop being chickenshit and quote me. Stop ducking a response.
