Arg.
I just saw a link to an article titled "what if a meteor hits the Earth at light-speed?"
The idea of people clicking that link and chattering about it excitedly somehow is as nauseating to me as anything.
The abuse, rape of scientific terms to satisfy the idiotic sensationalist brains of the postmodern hordes.

Lol.

"We must, now armed with such a language, realize the “transcendental unity of ideas,” through a new morality that aims, not to hypostasize experience and grasp in positive knowledge a series of particular virtues and vices, but rather to fully explicate this continuity; where philosophy exists to represent this transcendental order, morality most exist to mediate the two spheres, the spheres of experience and ideality." --Parodites

"Between this sky and the faces turned toward it there is nothing on which to hang a mythology, a literature, an ethic, or a religion—only stones, flesh, stars, and those truths the hand can touch." --Camus

Yeah, "What if" questions are valid but they should always be based in reality. A meteor cannot travel at light speed. But they do hit Earth now and then.
