Scientists Mess with the Speed of Light
Researchers in Switzerland have succeeded in breaking the cosmic speed limit by getting light to go faster than, well, light.

Or is it all an illusion?

Scientists have recently succeeded in doing all sorts of fancy things with light, including slowing it down and even stopping it all together. Now a team at the Ecole Polytechnique Fdrale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland is controlling the speed of light using simple off-the-shelf optical fibers, without the aid of special media such as cold gases or crystalline solids like in other experiments.

"This has the enormous advantage of being a simple, inexpensive procedure that works at any wavelength," said Luc Thvenaz, lead author of the study detailing the research. ...

Ever since man has begun testing the speed of light, it has been shown to be constant. These experiments have shown that light's speed can be altered by man. It does not show that it can be sped up naturally.

A six day creation is not dependent on light and other natural processes being naturally sped up.
There are 4 current theories that describe how a six day creation happened. Only 2 of them require that light and natural processes be naturally sped up to reach earth. Light could have been supernaturally sped up by God as well. He didn't have to naturally speed up light for a six day creation to have happened.

Albert Einstein's Theory of Relativity is one of the most experimentally verified theoretical physics theories, along with Quantum Mechanics (as strange as Quantum Mechanics is)
However, both theories conflict with one another, so they are both not completely true.

Einstein is not a fraud. Experiments (so far) have said that. Darwin was.

I said M.I.T. or CalTech, not some rehash. If this a a valid conclusion, then independent researchers should be able to reach the same conclusion.

Are the proponents of this idea going to say that only Christian researchers can reach this conclusion? If this is true, then non christian scientists should observe the same thing.

Pretty wild claims made on www.thefinaltheory.com, which is selling a book. It is uncharitable to call Einstein a fraud. Relativity seems to have been vindicated empirically. It is a generalization of Newton's laws. No theory should be taken as the last word on physical reality, since the limitations of our powers of observation & measurement error make it impossible to verify anything totally. Certain theories seem to work, but that is different from being true, so they are always vulnerable to refutation or elaboration. We aren't God, and will always fall short of knowing Him and His creation with exactitude, as we learn in Job 38-41.

Since we know the speed of light can be changed, then we know that measurements of the age of the universe that depend upon the speed of light are unreliable. The universe could be much younger than it has appeared because the light could have spread throughout it much faster than previously thought.

A great, additional discovery would be that radioactive decay rates can also be speeded up and are not constant. This would also argue on behalf of a younger earth.

Holding to six day creation is essential to holding to biblical inerrancy.

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth...And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. (Genesis 1:1,31)

Thank you Arthur. Does someone happen to have any M.I.T. or CalTech web sites explaining this matter?

The speed of light is slowing down? Really? I haven't heard that urban rumor. They ought to give a Nobel Prize to the guy who discovered that one; or an Ignobel prize to the guy started it.

I thought the speed of light had been slowing down since Adam and Eve were here!
Is this man's effort to crank it up again??
