Why Is That A Fault

If the speed of light is the only constant in the universe- actually somthing he did not believe himself as there are other constants- but if it is the only constant, then time has a elevated status.

He also thought that the size of the universe was a constant and bent his theory to produce this result. He later admitted that it was his biggest mistake. So not even the universe is constant- in time.

Everything that is constant is actually demonstrating the importance of time. It is only if nothing ever changed- if everything was constant and static- would time not matter. The fact that almost eveything changes with time shows how important time is. So if you find something that does not change with time- like the speed of light or god- then that becomes the backbone of religion and science.

You can fault the idea of a static universe. But you cannot fault the very concept that allows us to say that something is static.
