Depends on your view of "c"... and your belief that it is constant.

VSL theories mainly propose that c had a different value early in the life of the universe. How does that help explain a 94 billion light year diameter universe ? In any case The speed of light in the early universe having a value of 1000c or more does not have any evidence to support it

Within THAT construct ..... given a high enough speed, it is explicable.

Neither did Einstein's theory when it was first published...

Supreme being? You are kidding right.
I am the resident mug and crack pot.
I guess that I am trying to demonstrate how I can respect mainstream and its approach then ignore it to then shore up my belief ...now thats reasonable surely.

Who is this Socrates?
Is he on the High Court?
I dislike the judgement of others as I always seem to be judged harshly and I avoid judging others but making judgement does often cross my mind I suppose because it is a human condition.
I like my responce to most things..."things just are" which avoids the waste of time judging and indulging stress or even anger.
