The thread has been derailed, I see a bunch of people yelling at one guy because he believes something that isn't necessarily correct, here's my advice to the people yelling at him "Don't argue with an idiot, they will bring you down to their level and beat you out with experience.", he's obviously going to stick to his thoughts and anything further isn't going to get anywhere, and I think you've all realized that and are sticking to different conversations within the thread.
As for the whole "bending physics theories" in 1998 scientists were able to slow down light by putting it in a room with a temperature of like .00349 Kelvin (to put this in perspective, 0 Kelvin would be "absolute zero" and would instantly freeze any particles caught in it). The bottom line is that light was slowed to the point where you could actually physicaly watch it when you turned a light on.
Now obviously this was done in a micro-lab, so the amount of light they actually slowed was very minimal due to the extreme temperature. However, at the point that scientists can effectively freeze particles with a temperatue of 0 Kelvin, theoretically they would be able to speed up particles, by increasing the temperature conditions to incredibly high standards.
The only problem with this is that they'd have to make incredibly flame-retarded suits/ships/engines to utilize this form of energy.
The bottom line is I'm pretty sure that science is getting closer and closer to emulating the speed of light >>
