I do most of my work in C#.Net / JavaScript, but I love playing around with lots of different languages and environments.

I don't know if he's a crackpot or not. I think it's an interesting question. Here's more to check out: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Variable_speed_of_light

comment Has the speed of light changed over time?
I'm not an expert, so I'm not going to create an answer. When I've asked about this before, I've heard that if the speed of light was different in the past, then things like stars would work differently. If stars worked differently in the past, we would see this by looking at far away galaxies. We don't see any difference like this, so no... the speed of light hasn't changed.

comment How does gravity escape a black hole?
So... if I'm following, flipped light-cones means that the information about the mass doesn't come from within the event horizon (causality doesn't flow that way). Instead the gravity comes from event horizon, which sounds like it fits with @Vagelford's answer. The mass isn't at some singularity at the center of the black hole, but is distributed around the edge? A sphere of mass "creates" the same gravitational field as that same mass at a point from the point of view of someone outside the sphere, right?
