Particles Traveling Faster Than the Speed of Light Measured at CERN

The scientists at CERN have discovered a rather peculiar anomaly in one of their experimental results.

The physics world is abuzz with news that a group of European physicists plans to announce Friday that it has clocked a burst of subatomic particles known as neutrinos breaking the cosmic speed limit — the speed of light — that was set by Albert Einstein in 1905.

If true, it is a result that would change the world. But that “if” is enormous.

It’s a very mind-boggling result, and it shows that science, rather than religion, continues to be the pioneer in bringing up (and hopefully answering) questions about our universe and our very existence. I’ve always been annoyed at people who ask me, “so if you don’t believe in God, how do you think everything came into existence?” It’s a very silly question because religious people know no more than atheists (but yet they pretend to know that everything poofed into existence from an undetectable supernatural entity whose origins are never explained).

The complete and total superiority of secular, scientific methods of knowing are shown once again. Let’s congratulate the scientists at CERN for actually doing the hard work of figuring out the deep mysteries of the universe, rather than arguing about books written in a desert.

  1. General Relativity is non-sense. Finite Theory permits faster-than-light messaging and explains how it can be achieved in a practical way:

    It also explains the constitution of a black hole.

  2. Believers in God/believers in no god = SAME THING.

    Beliefs = little boxes limiting Sight.

    Religion /= God.

    Science during the discovery and observation phase = does not close off avenues of possibilities. Be careful in not doing the very thing that is argued against. And make no mistake about it – “arguing about books written in a desert” is exactly what’s going on here.

    The best way to approach science is to be Agnostic about science. In other words, be open to what may be while accepting the truths that come your way.
    The best way to approach God is to be Agnostic about God. In other words, be open to what may be while accepting the truths that come your way.

    Science and religion are in conflict. It’s no surprise that a construct of man’s is in conflict with science.

    God and science, however, are not in conflict in any way whatsoever. God Is ALL about science.
