A Final Word

I hope you’ve enjoyed my last two posts about math and words and truth and lies.  I couldn’t resist this one, although I hate to ever give any possible encouragement to those that think the world is flat.

It is beyond question that nothing in the universe can travel faster than a massless particle, which is 300,000 km per second.  Remember we are considering objects in the universe.

But if you ask a cosmologist if anything anywhere could possibly go faster than that he will tell you about Inflation Theory, which states that right after the big bang the universe almost instantaneously expanded to near its present size.  It seems that the universal speed limit applies to objects within space, but not to space itself; it can expand as fast as it wants.

Now aint that a kick in the balls?
