Few scientists are betting against Einstein yet, but the phantom neutrinos of Opera are still eluding explanation.

Two months after scientists reported that they had clocked subatomic particles known as neutrinos going faster than the speed of light, to the astonishment and vocal disbelief of most of the world’s physicists, the same group of scientists, known as Opera, said on Friday that it had performed a second experiment that confirmed its first results and eliminated one possible explanation for how the experiment could have gone wrong.

But the group admitted that many questions remain. “This is not the end of the story,” said Antonio Ereditato of the University of Bern in Switzerland, the spokesman for the collaboration, explaining that physicists would not accept the result that neutrinos could go faster than light until other experiments had come up with the same conclusion. “We are convinced, but that is not enough in science,” he said.

Other physicists said they remained skeptical that the universe was about to be overturned.  The speed of light was established as the cosmic speed limit, at least for ordinary matter in ordinary space, in 1905 by Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity (now known as special relativity), foreclosing the possibility of time travel into the past or of timely travel to other stars. Neutrinos, though ghostly in many regards — they are able to traverse planets and walls of lead like light through a window, and to shape-shift from one of three varieties of the particle to another along the way — are part of the universe, and so there was no reason to expect that Einstein’s stricture should not apply to them as well.

But over the course of the last three years, in experiments designed to investigate this shape shifting, neutrinos produced at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, and beamed underground to the Gran Sasso National Laboratory in Italy, an underground facility about 450 miles away, arrived about 58 billionths of a second sooner than would a light beam, according to Opera. The group is based at Gran Sasso, which is near L’Aquila; CERN is in Geneva. LINK

Ok let’s think about this for a second: Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity, a bedrock principle that has governed physics for over one hundred years is on the verge of being scrapped yet Al Gore’s theory of global warming er, climate change is “settled science”. Really? As far as I know Einstein was brilliant. Al Gore… not so bright. After all the global warming fraud and evidence manipulation and outright lies I can’t believe anyone even takes this green B.S. seriously anymore.

    I used to get myself all tied up in knots about stuff like this, but who cares about the opinions of mortal men? EVERYTHING in the entire universe is held together by one uncontrollable force: Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ created everything, keeps everything working as He designed it, & without Him everything would cease to exist as it is. Need proof? Read the first chapter of The Gospel of John, especially the first eighteen verses. I refuse to let left wing nonsense get under my skin anymore. Jesus Christ is the answer to everything regarding the inner workings of God’s universe. Scientists will never have the knowledge & wisdom of God & the left collectively make up the lord of the air’s comedy troupe. Just laugh at them & give praise to The One who made it all.

    Tsunamis, Hurricanes, Earthquakes and Tornadoes We are not in charge. We are here as part of the universe and it is arrogant of man to believe we either do or can manipulate the earth as much as we do. As stated by Kenneth there are highter powers at work.

  3. Wow, you take an awesome article about science and ruin it with your right-wing mouth-foaming.

    And Kenneth, if you need proof that God created everything, the Bible is probably the LAST place to look.

    • Kenneth E. MacAlister Jr. says:

      Explain please Randal why The Bible is the LAST place to look for proof God in the person of Jesus Christ created everything. Especially since The Bible is the inspired Word of God written through men hand picked by God to spread His Word, some of whom were discipled by Jesus Christ Himself. Proof of this? God says so through the scriptures & God does not & cannot lie. Holiness means without fault of any kind. The holy God who created everything is without fault, falsehood, or imperfection. Please also keep in mind any human sources offered are imperfect as are all humans. The fact you wake up each morning, your heart continues to beat & you continue to breathe is totally out of the hands of mortal, imperfect man. You exist due to the power of God, nothing else. God bless you & enjoy the day God blessed you with.

        Kenneth, let’s take this Sunday’s Gospel reading (Matthew 25:31-46) since I’m sure the good Captain went to church yesterday. Basically, treat everyone equally, treat them with respect…except the gays. Right or wrong? The Catholic church doesn’t treat everyone the same; maybe they should follow Jesus’ teachings.

        Also, do you follow “An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.” or “…turn the other cheek…”?

        SOME of the Bible may be God’s word but the problem is that most people cherry-pick what they want and disregard the rest.

    • Seriously? After being battered for over a decade about the “Settled Science” of global warming, of how anyone who dares challenge the lefts position is a heretic or ignoramous and how we need to revert back to living as if it were the 6th century you blame ME? Nice.

      There’s no foaming here. I’m just pointing out how INSANE and ARROGANT the left is with their eco-fascism and you have NOTHING of substance to counter with except blather as usual.

      The left is in the process of destroying our economy based on their fantasies, junk science, outright lies and deceptions and your mad at me. Half a billion dollars to Solyndra and I make you mad.
      The facts are that most all of the pseudo-science of global warming has been de-bunked at this point. The outright lies and fraud perpetrated by those who stand to profit from Al Gores carbon credit schemes and “Green Energy” hoaxes have been exposed for what they are: Lies.

      Einstein was one of the most brilliant scientists in history and yet even he may have been wrong about his most important work. YET we are supposed to believe there can be NO MISTAKING THAT GLOBAL WARMING IS FACT. Pure horseshit.

    I never said Global Warming isn’t proven science; my point to you is that scientists question even the most highly regarded laws and theories and all you can fall back to is your typical “the radical left”, “fascist” statements. This post would have been great had you just informed your readers that scientists are challenging one of the greatest in their field ever because that’s what they do.
