That was your statement, not mine. "Faster simply means more distance per time. There is NO DIRECTION to the term faster." Thus if there is no direction to the term "faster," then it cannot be going slower than the belt, since there is no such thing as a negative speed. It can only have a speed of zero or be going faster than the belt relative to the belt. You are now argung against yourself and calling your own statements BS. And on THAT I will agree.
