That's nice for you. Pointless waste of time maybe, but nice.

No one who knows of what they are talking about. Your mass increases as you get near to c. To travel at c means you must have NO rest mass. Photons qualify, humans don't

Sort of right. But mass is not that simple. E

E=Mc^2. Mass is energy, energy is mass. Photons decay to electrons and positrons then recombine back to photons. Looks like a mass to energy conversion to me. Protons interacting in the ppp chain give off photons and neutrinos.

Mass-Energy can not be created/destroyed but either can be converted from the other.

Don't know who 'you' is, hands up you, but YOU are sadly mistaken. I am happy that you are so sure in your knowledge that Physics is so wrong. All those people working in Labs, with particle accelerators and telescopes must be so wrong. What are we teaching people today. Of course, we really know it is all wrong and have a working time machine in the basement but aren't telling anyone, neener, neener.


For a scientific revolution to occur every scientists must first be wrong.
