M'kay there, sweet cheeks.
You've linked the wrong post and you know it. You're being disingenuous and you're still lying.
Here's the post we've been discussing, the 9th one on the page.

Your first line is:
"Light's speed is constant."
You ain't the only one that can google Topix....
Liar.
No, I didn't link to the wrong post.

I linked to the one that started this. It came BEFORE the one you linked to.

This was linked to on this thread yesterday...

And how did you respond?...

And, BTW... I'm not googling. I don't have to use Google to find out >I< said on Topix.

Why do you?

Don't call me a liar. Thus far, EVERY SINGLE TIME you have, it's bit you in your arse.

Have I ever called you a liar?

Why does it vary with frequency moron?
Because that's what frequency is ? A variation in wavelength or speed, position or oscillation.
Motion or et's or even intensity.

Right.

In this one, you start off saying "Light's speed is constant."

Then I erase the rest of your post & only reply to that first sentence.

False, in fact it exists its entire trajectory independent of your perception of time.

<quoted text>We can see the orbits of the nearby stars around this object (this is how we know it is there). We know it is emitting no light. We know it is incredibly massive (around 4 million solar masses). We know it is in a very small space (within 6.5 light hours). That fits *all* the requirements for a black hole. We are even measuring the distortion of space around it by the precession of the orbits of the stars. There is no alternative theory that explains the observations.

What, in your mind, is required to 'detect' a black hole?
There's also a cloud of gas headed for it that will make for some interesting data this year.

Intensity decreases as the inverse square of the distance. That has nothing to do with the speed of light.
I would think it has more to do with interstellar dust and interference than any other reason. Being the medium is not perfect nor was it designed specifically for it.

Because like you and every other thing that exists in motion.
