Why should I?
When the very first sentence is wrong, logic dictates that the rest of the post will be equally wrong.
The very first sentence is correct.

What follows it is an explanation of why it's correct.

Which is why you won't address it.

The speed of light isn't fixed.
You were wrong when you said that the speed of light in water is a constant. In fact, it varies with frequency. You made the same mistake about the speed of light in paper.

Monochromatic light (light of a given frequency) has a constant speed, through water... right?

Which is faster through water... light toward the red end, or toward the blue end?

Why would finite speed create infinite mass then, moron?
M = m/sqrt(1-v^2/c^2)
Where:-
M = Relativist
Mass m = Rest Mass
v = Velocity of body
c = Velocity of Light

If it can't attain it, even infinite amounts wouldn't be able to attain it.
And why can't it attain light speed?

Tis not my fault thou art challenged by numbers.
1+1+1=1 has you befuddled.

I am not a atheist but a humanist.
I see zero evidence for any gods or rituals that support these deities.

Religion is in decline. The Internet will eventually become religions death rattle. Too much knowledge is available.
Get over it.

Rephrase your statements to include any term that relates to non belief. Atheist is too narrow a term for non believers. This is much like saying that Billy Graham represents the pinnacle of holiness and Christianity.

Put the wheels back on the trailer and travel to the big city. Book a tour of Scandinavia, then thou shalt learn of thy logic errors. ;)

They are quite irreligious!
And very vocal about it.

Show them your bible for a extra chuckle ;)

So which would you use to determine how long it takes for light to get from the Andromeda spiral galaxy (approximately 2.5 million light years away) to us?
Approximately 2.5 million years.

You people can be very obtuse.

This has turned in to a three day conversation...

The point is simple; the speed of light varies.

Possibly something like it.
Warp drives are a plausible possibility where we would compress the space in front of a ship and stretch it behind, but this would require enormous amounts of energy.
Maybe if we learn to harness the energy of black holes.
But then, you don't think there ARE black holes, do you?
Warp drive would be awesome.

Of course I think there are black holes....

All I've stated is that we haven't detected one yet.

Because we haven't.
