"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."

I'm no physiscist, but I've read that this does not contradict Einstien's theories. Read some of those links I had, some go a little more in depth than others.

"Similiarly, it is possible that light can speed up."

So you admit that it is possible the universe is much younger than previously thought?

Here is a link about that:

"John Moffat of the physics department disagrees - light once travelled much faster than it does today, he believes."

If this is true, this would completly change many things about what we 'know' about the universe. It could also mean a younger universe.
