Concerning the Italian researchers’ discovery that neutrinos may be exceeding the speed of light, this is at Reuters today: “It is premature to comment on this,” Professor Stephen Hawking, the world’s most well-known physicist, told Reuters. “Further experiments and clarifications … Continue reading
Or, as the New York Times put it today, “Incredible claims require incredible evidence.” The reference is to the mind-blowing (apparent) discovery that there are neutrinos that can outpace the speed of light. Here’s more from the New York Times: According … Continue reading

Does God, by his (or her) very existence, necessarily cast an evil shadow? And does the creation, to even exist, cast an evil shadow? The youthful Einstein’s observation (echoing Thomas Aquinas) strikes me as very close to the gnostic idea that … Continue reading
