Hokay, enough. I've been watching this question linger on for
Photons do not have mass, because they are _Buddhists_. That's
it! There have been some heretical sects of Photons of the Virtual
Particle which held mass, but that was a negative mass;
some say it was actually a black mass, but this is a dark matter.
Their prelates wore rich purple robes and vied with each other to
wear more iridescent ones, until finally the robes for their sheen
could not be seen at all! This was the infamous ultra-violet
catastrophe. By this time an infinity of photons had already
collected in the dark church, so that Pope Planck found it necessary
to excommunicate the whole lot of them at once! They all vanished
down a black hole in a body, and that's why we have black bodies
to this day. But never, since that moment, has there ever been
another photonic mass. Deo Gratias.
Now you know the truth, and can stop arguing.
Got something to tell me?
