Eienstein got it wrong?

Australian Scientists Challenge Eienstein

According to Albert Einstein's theory of relativity, enunciated a century ago, the speed of light - the "c" in his famous equation e=mc 2 - has been a constant 299,792,458 metres a second since the universe began with the Big Bang. Dr. Joao Magueijo thinks Einstein, who did have second thoughts but never pursued them, got it wrong. He believes that not long after the Big Bang light hit a "speed bump" and is, in fact, slowing down.

I'm no scientist but perhaps he stumbled across something in relation to intensity and or distance . I'm a little curious about his findings , not overly but nonetheless , I have an appreciation for science .

This story first came to my attention in the summer of 05. This affects many things such as carbon dateing use for giveing us an over estimation on the age of things.

Also years ago... late 80's early 90's heard that the e=mc2 was wrong that the problem should realy read e= (m)2(c)2 not sure on the truth of this. I read it in some artical dealing with math problems.

Now if the speed of light is slowing down does that me time is also and if time is slowing down do we age slower, appearing now to be liveing longer when in all actuality we are not?

It's only slowing down because of the price of gas.
