Scientists vs. Loonies
I pointed out the totally illogical acceptance by Ellis Washington of the preliminary results of scientists, who were appropriately tentative in their announcement, that muon neutrinos might travel a little faster than light. Of course, Washington was playing the ol' "scientists are sometimes wrong, therefore don't trust science" game.
Now there is a possible explanation of the CERN results that ... if correct ... confirms Einstein's theory.
Of course, this explanation must, itself, be confirmed ... but that's what scientists do!

Many a true word...
But, I'm glad it all happened, because it was a cool opportunity to learn science!
