So nothing CAN travel faster than light after all!

We can all breath a sigh of relief. The speed of light is still a universal absolute after all, contrary to earlier reports from CERN. Apparently the mistake may all be put down to a faulty wire!

The only problem now is that I heard about it in The Daily Wail. A publication that has much to recommend it, but not strict accuracy. So whichever way I lean it puts me on the horns of a dilemma. Believe things can travel faster than light, or believe the Mail?

Decisions, decisions!

fourm member his work may not have been confirmed but it brought to peoples attention not to believe every thing that is spoon fed to the public.

One thing to remember about MMR is this, even with all the publicity nobody has been able to explain why some children pass all the mile stones in development then regress into autism when given the MMR vaccine.

"get research results confirmed by further experiments before accepting them."

But did anybody accept them, apart from the press, particularly the British press who will believe anything that will generate a "shock horror" headline?

As I recall, the general consensus on this forum, let alone in more scientific circles was "wait and see".

We did and we have!

fourm member please do not show your ignorance about a subject you know nothing about apart from what you have read in the press.

"There is absolutely no connection between MMR and autism. That has been demonstrated completely" tell that to my son who was admitted to hospital after receiving the MMR jab at 14 months.

Before calling people ignorant,and accusing them of knowing nothing about a subject it might pay to do a little fact-checking yourself.

This is what the National Autistic Society has to say on the subject of the MMR vaccine:-

"We recognise that the weight of epidemiological evidence indicates that there is no statistically significant link between the MMR vaccine and autism."

They also say:

"The causes of autism are still unknown. Experts believe that autism is caused by interaction between several complex genetic and environmental factors."

I'm not happy where this is going, so I'm going to tick it.
