Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
Scientists are so cute. So how did they clock the supra-light speed of this sub atomic particle? Oh right, with their man-made technology. How did they clock the speed of light in the first place? Oh right, with their man-made technology. Sounds like a classic case of anthropomorphism to me
So we assumed we were smart enough to conceive of the speed of light by our own silly definitions, and now logically our definitions have expanded with our technology, and surely these current understandings will only change as well in the future. The problem is that too many scientists today are ideologues about their science, they take it as Gospel truth as the Gospels, and then they are surprised when by their own curious methods they make new discoveries, as if the the fundamental premise of science to begin with wasn't experimentation to learn knew understandings and new perspectives. To limit one scientific understanding as dogma is to prevent the next discovery and therefore a contradiction to the true ethos of science, but hey, let em have their fun, it only costs a few billion
