Thanks for admitting that.

Ok, not to harp on you, but a couple days ago you were adament about the fact light could not be stopped:

"What? Stopped it? If this is true, the theory of relativity would, like, vaporize...."

Now you know light can be stopped.

So, right now you also 'know' the speed of light cannot speed up, right? Perhaps tommorow you will learn that it can. I think it probably can.
This would explain stars so far away in a young universe.

Like I said, didn't want to dwell on it, but I wanted to make a point. Our knoweldge of what can and cannot happen, can change in a second. Just keep this in mind.


P.S. I was amazed when I read about it. Weird stuff!
