comment Has the speed of light changed over time?
@Nogwater Thanks, great article. I think that'd answer any question I might have. Except hearing what t'hoofts opinion is ;p. The shocking claim from the opfocus.org I linked is that redshifted galaxies might not be speeding away from each other at all: "if c were decreasing over time, the Hubble effect would turn out to be a simple optical effect, eliminating the need to postulate the existence of the dark matter." Now that seems like something easy to disprove and label as crackpottery. Right?

comment Has the speed of light changed over time?
I googled my question and found that a physicist J.W. Moffat supports the hypothesis:"physically consistent theories in which the speed of light is varying in time can indeed be developed in a safe and rigorous way." He works at the perimiter institute. Does that mean crackpot? opfocus.org/index.php?topic=story&v=8&s=4
