He may be blind but he is not stupid. Perhaps you might like to explain, in terms other than argument by intimidation, how one differentiates photon absorption from photon emission by means other than theory. In fact, how do you know the meaning of "null geodesics"?
Are we discussing real physics, or just batting our gums?
