if time stopped for everything but him, he should be bursting into flames with every breath he takes because of the heat generate from the friction between the air molecules and the cells of his body

this is nothing but lies. Don't believe anyhing he says

I think it would be the opposite of what you said. First, everything would be dark because the light should have stopped too. The fact you can still see what is going on makes it a bogus concept.

When nothing is moving, that is cold -- not hot. The laws of thermodynamics show that the more entropy, the more heat and the less entropy, the less heat. So if he inhaled air, it would be extremely cold air.

People breathe in air every day and don't burn up so why should there be additional friction if the air wasn't moving a second prior to him inhaling it? His body entropy would transfer to the air removing the heat out of his body and he would freeze to death.

people don't breath in air that goes faster than the speed of light.

his lungs would burst into flames. He doesn't even need the air friction to do it. Every movement of each and every one of his atoms would generate a tremendous amount of heat seeing that time stood still.

it would be like a big bang.

I think you missed the point. The air is not moving so it is not moving faster than the speed of light. What was in the video that made you think since objects were not moving that should be interpreted as the air moving faster than air?

Oops, "faster than light" not "faster than air."

well nothing is moving but he is. And since time has stopped it means that he is moving faster than the speed of light because when time stops, protons stop moving as well.

However, since you can still see the people and all the rest, it doesn't really mean the time has stopped completely, otherwise we wouldn't be able to see anything as you pointed out, which leads me to believe that time has slowed down by a considerable ammount but not to the extent that light itself would stop, which would mean that he is moving extremely fast, hence the friction, hence the bursting into flames.

I think what is happening is that it is a trick with video editing and there isn't anything against the laws of physics going on.

If time was stoped everyting would look like jungolangos brain. Jongland is idiot even under the circumtances of time is stopped.

Jesus can still smoke even if the time was stopped.
