Einstein did not say nothing could move faster than light, he said matter or energy or information
can not. Recently it has been shown experimentally that Bell's Inequality is violated so there
can be little doubt that things CAN influence each other over vast distances much faster than
light, probably instantly. However influencing something is not the same as communicating
with it. I don't think anything demonstrates the spooky nature of Quantum Mechanics better than
Bell's Inequality.
