Phil for Humanity gives an article about observing objects near the speed of light.

  1. Perhaps Anonymous was a little harsh, but quite frankly, I agree with the notion. Far be it for me to suggest censorship, but perhaps the host could exercise a little moderation in accepting entries? If Phil’s presumptious claims of originality prefacing an article displaying no grasp of relativity didn’t automatically trigger a deletion response, then surely reading his linked “proofs” about infinity would have.

    It seems to me that Carnival entries are either thought-provoking or discussion-provoking. This one has been tainted.

  2. Some good discussion above!

    I have just added your blog to the Blogspot Dirctory under the “Education, School and University” section. Is this ok?
