Bear in mind I never said light could not be stopped, only that it would violate the theory of relativity (which I was probably wrong about - I don't know - I was sure that according to relativity it was a physical impossibility to accelerate past light speed from any reference frame, but I have to verify this with a physicist: Yanniru?) which is a big difference. Similiarly, it is possible that light can speed up. Anything is possible, as I have said about 8000 times. However, basing one's opinions entirely on an unfounded possibility, as your faith requires you to do, strikes me as a shaky and uneven foundation.

Remember: I'm not the one making statements about the true nature of reality here!
