If the greatest scientist, Albert Einstein was wrong about the speed of light and nothing moving faster than light, I do not know any man I can trust….HOWZZAT!
Fresh test affirms Einstein is wrong

New Experiment Shows Sub-Atomic Particles Called Neutrinos Travel Faster Than Light
London: A new experiment appears to provide further evidence that Einstein may have been wrong when he laid down that nothing could go faster than the speed of light, a theory that underpins modern thinking on how the universe works.
The new evidence, challenging a dogma of science that has stood since Albert Einstein published his theory of relativity in 1905, appeared to confirm that sub-atomic particles called neutrinos could travel fractions of a second faster.
A new experiment at the Gran Sasso laboratory, using a neutrino beam from CERN in Switzerland, 720 km away, was held to check similar findings in September 2010 by a team of scientists which were greeted with some scepticism.
Scientists at the Italian Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN) said in a statement that their new tests aimed to exclude one potential systematic effect that may have affected the original measurement.
“A measurement so delicate and carrying a profound implication on physics requires an extraordinary level of scrutiny,” said Fernando Ferroni, president of the INFN.
“The positive outcome of the test makes us more confident in the result, although a final word can only be said by analogous measurements performed elsewhere in the world.”
An international team of scientists shocked the scientific world with the original findings in September. That first finding was recorded when 15,000 neutrino beams were pumped over three years from CERN to Gran Sasso, an underground Italian laboratory near Rome.
Physicists on the experiment, called OPERA after the initials of its formal scientific title, said they had checked and rechecked over many months anything that could have produced a misreading before announcing what they had found.
If confirmed, scientists say the findings could show that Einstein — father of modern physics — was wrong when he laid down in his theory of special relativity that the speed of light was a “cosmic constant”, and nothing could go faster.
It seems we need to take a major dose of humility and say “God, you are the Creator, and you know everything, we are sorry to even pretend to be God”
