Lower? Wasn't it supposed to have been faster 6000 years ago?

Now they've done it. I have to go back and review all this Sommerfeld stuff...

And didn't Einstein originally just assume the speed of light as a constant?

"A varying speed of light contradicts Einstein's theory of relativity, and would undermine much of traditional physics." I'm no physicist, but that assertion seems a stretch because if the 'constant is sliding upward, the relative 'whole-universe' relationship would be the same at any given temporal point. Am I confused or what?
