I was told in another thread that saying that the Galilean relativity of Newtonian and classical mechanics could be thought of as light speed having the possibility of being infinite was nonsense. Since it was true that a discussion there of these points was off-topic, I use this new thread to offer this for debate. From wikipedia "Inertial frame of reference" entry: "In Newtonian mechanics, which can be viewed as a limiting case of special relativity in which the speed of light is infinite, inertial frames of reference are related by the Galilean group of symmetries." This other quote is from John Hawley's professor of the virginia university page on questions about relativity: http://www.astro.virginia.edu/~jh8h/Foundations/Foundations_1/quest7.html "Interestingly, these things are true even in Galilean relativity, except that in Galilean relativity the speed of light is infinite." Fortunately I'm not alone in saying this kind of "nonsense". What do you folks think?
