Einstein was in a trolley moving away from city hall he he noticed the clock on the tower and he visualized what would happen if he accelerated to the speed of light.
At the speed of light, the clock which was stationary, would appear to freeze. But what if you were in the clock and you saw the trolley accelerate away from you? It all depends with relativity!!!
Yawn. Relativity doesn't affirm your fantasy. Grow up.

Incidentally, there were thousands of "Adams". The biblical story is FOS if you're a literalist. The "infallible" teaching has been falsified. Humans evolved from a common ancestor to apes. Sorry. The evolutionary process occurred over millions of years. Check out the GULO pseudogene in humans and chimps. The chromosomal fusion of ape chromosomes 12 and 13 that resulted in human chromosome 2. Look at the evidence in other pseudogenes from human and other primates. Either you believe in evolution over millions of years or you believe in a Divine Merry Prankster who is jerking your chain. Genesis is either a metaphor or a fable. One thing is evident, it's not factual, and dogmas based on literal interpretation are erroneous.

ERROR. Fundamentalists cannot handle the fact that their "inerrant" beliefs are in ERROR.

Now, the question is, can a helicopter go transonic? And the answer is yes! The first parts that go transonic is the rotor tips.
You see, at a hover your rotor tips are doing roughly 350 mph so if the aircraft accelerate to 100 mph, the rotor tips are going 450 on the advancing side but 250 mph on the retreating side.
If you accelerate to 200 mph one side is not doing 550 mph while the other side is down to on 150 mph which means the retreating side will probably stall out at some point and that is called 'retreating blade stall.
Now, if you decrease the pitch of the blades and go into a high speed dive, it is possible for the blade tips to go transonic. But only for a short period of time and then goes subsonic. Each blade will do this 200-300 times per minute which is extremely stressful on the blades and they will probably start to fail and then the ride is OVER!
Oh, I have had a Chinook up to about 155 knots (about 178 mph) and that is when you will run out of power and start to lose altitude. Normal cruise speed on a Chinook is 135 kts and red line is 174 kts.

Again, no relevance. We were saying you mixed up the earth and the universe, not comprehending that they are two different things, never mind the mouse and the elephant. That trolley thing was well depicted in McIsaac's biography of Einstein. As was the speeding train windows and the individual inside. But Rogue, if I happen to read an essay or a scientific paper, or a climate analysis, I don't instantly come here, cut and paste them and begin to wax poetic on their concept and STATE conclusions like you do from the often hand-picked and select company-appointed and right-wing ideological "experts" and think thanks. Are you able to weigh various concepts and come to a thoughtful and balanced judgement? As in all things, you pick sides based on the individuals involved that you either likei or hate even before hearing all the evidence. Zimmerman/Martin, Benghazi and BinLaden are but three examples out of hundreds.

The only two I know is Don and Cindy Callison. I did not know Don until the late 1970s and we compared notes and hound out we were in the Battle of Snoul Cambodia (early 1971)together.

Yep, there are a few looney-righties that think that this might happen. I think Pres. Obama would call out the National Guard and block Arlington if someone even tried.
Obama may not be very bright but he is not stupid enough to allow this!

Who can forget Galileo Galilei? The Church finally said he was right in the 1970s and it didn't like it one bit. Yet, dogma had it that the sun revolved around the earth. You disbelieved that, you were dead, as Galileo found out and had to repent.

Thou shalt not kill. Gun's sole purpose is to kill*. Gold**(riches) will surely damn you to the fires of hell. Jesus takes both away to save you. Logical, no?

* Thou shalt not kill, remember? God's doing you a favour by taking it away. Be thankful.

** It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to inherit the kingdom of heaven (from memory, correct me if need be).

You misinterpreted it, admit it, Rogue. Not very good at understanding art, are you? Bet you still think your infant daughter could paint better than Picasso or Braque or Van Gogh, correct?

The church didn't rule it dogma of a geocentric system. The Church merely forbade Galileo from promulgating his discovery, because their infallible pronouncement could not be made at the time. They needed to wait for further evidence, and then a few hundred years later they could decide. That's how infallibility apparently works. Except of course, if they make a mistake, and then they have to stick with their original infallible conclusion, Facts be damned.

Wow, from that unimpeachable blog "The Blaze" which, like you, Rogue, misinterpreted the painting. Not the artist's point of view at all. Mine's not quite right on or his either, but it's certainly closer than yours and the Blaze's. Artist mocks the hypocritical lip service paid to Jesus, while acting totally against Christian principles.

Yep, the Looney-Tooney-Lefties do the backstroke as they look for a way out of their hole. They can not yet admit the Greenland has been GAINING ice mass over the past few years so they quibble over the truth!!!

Greenland's Glacial Melt May Slow, Study Suggests
By Becky Oskin, OurAmazingPlanet Staff Writer | LiveScience.com –

Greenland's galloping glaciers will likely slow their rapid retreat in the coming century, scientists project based on a new computer modeling study.
In the study, published today (May 8) in the journal Nature, researchers resolve one of the biggest uncertainties about Greenland's future contributions to sea-level rise: the behavior of its outlet glaciers. These massive ice rivers drain to the ocean, adding both surface runoff water and icebergs to the sea. The researchers discovered that Greenland's outlet glaciers retreat in episodic pulses, which account for the past 10 years of dramatic ice loss.
