I would have to say, the threory of relativity is false.

Lets take E=MC2 for inctance, this isn`t possible due to c, because light can act in so many different ways. The speed of light cannot be constant,

When we talk about light we talk about not just the visible, part but the enitre Electromagnetic Sprectrum, which includes Gama Rays - radiation to you and me :) Radiation has been seen to escape black-holes, thus meaning, that the speed of light is not constant,

However, nothing-can go faster than the speed of light: That is correct.

Lets asume, we are travelling at the speed of light, then we travel, say 100 mph faster, light will catch up. That is light, for any moving object is constant, however fast the object goes, but to an observer light is also seen to be constant, however, light has changed its relative speed.

This theory cannot be proven or disproven, but it certainly makes a lot of sense, if you were to think about it logically.
