Testing the Truth

Faster than the speed of light?  Amazing!

From the CERN Speed of Light Experiments. . .

I find this approach to discovery, well, enlightening. . .always test your theories and experience with the community.

How about faster than the speed of enlightenment?

What if Religions did this?  What if each religious claim (I saw Mary; I found golden tablets; an angel spoke to me; God says. . .) would be taken before the Court of World Community?  “And, Sir, how did you know that was Mary and not Kali?. . .Where are those golden tablets?. . .Ma’am, Why didn’t anyone else see that angel?. . .Excuse me, WHOSE God???”

BBC News:  In the meantime, the group says it is being very cautious about its claims.

“We tried to find all possible explanations for this,” said report author Antonio Ereditato of the Opera collaboration.

“We wanted to find a mistake – trivial mistakes, more complicated mistakes, or nasty effects – and we didn’t,” he told BBC News.

“When you don’t find anything, then you say ‘Well, now I’m forced to go out and ask the community to scrutinise this.'”
