Questions concerning the constancy of the speed of light have surfaced
again just recently - but this time from a completely unexpected
quarter. In a 'New Scientist' article entitled "Is nothing sacred?" its
author, John Barrow (Professor of Mathematical Sciences, University of
Cambridge, UK) states "Call it heresy, but all the big cosmological
problems will simply melt away, if you break one rule...the rule that
says the speed of light never varies." For those interested, details may
be found at

If the claim be true, then a simple application of Occam's Razor
suggests that current evolutionary claims represent little more than 'a
house of cards'!
