RR is whining on three threads.
Sorry to rat on you, RR.
Keep it secrete.

Don't tell me what thread.

Please... for RR's sake.

He's had enough of me and I don't want to do anything that might jeopardize our "friendship".

I'd miss the little lunkhead.

Let me clarify, they need to provide me a warrant before they can enter my buildings to tap a data line. I am part of global network operations, layers 1-3 we maintain the Titan switches, FW7500's, fibers, OC192's...

You the idiot, they already do you say they need a warrant? ha ha ha All that big brother eavesdropping on your conversations , and the chat goes right through them.
They have over 10,000 people working in 24 hours shifts , picking up on key words. They say they don't pay that much attention untill the program picks up one of the keys, then they track you to see if its any good(bad) stuff to sneakle in on.

Agnostic deals with knowledge of a god whereas atheist deals with actively believing in god. Hence a person can be both.

This really shouldn't need to be explained to you.... Again.

Gene could certainly be an anti theist on top of his agnostic atheism.

Give RR about two weeks to ponder it and it may sink in. He is the same guy who screamed for weeks that Catholics aren't Christians. When I asked him what the largest Christian church is? He said, why the Catholics are the largest Christian church of course.....

And his IQ has only went down ever since.

Wrong.
Your very first sentence was "The speed of light is constant".
Which is wrong.
It's not wrong.

Incomplete, maybe, but not wrong.

Your statements, that the speed of light varies, are equally incomplete, so by your own admission they are also wrong.

Your statements that the speed of light varies, should read something like, depending on the medium, or when going from one medium to another.

When light is travelling in a single medium, its speed does not vary. It is only "c" in a vacuum, but its speed will be constant for each medium it travels in.

You can admit you were wrong now.

I'm not sure about those, so I'll take your word for it and concede.
I was also wrong when I wrote "c is not constant". What I meant to write is "the speed of light is not constant".
Congratulations.

Not in the U.S.

It is shrinking here while in underdeveloped and third world countries it is growing.

That is most likely due to lack of education and desperate poverty.
