    3 x 10^8 m/s : same as light.
    It is the absence of it after all.

    And if you don't like that made-up reason; try ying/jang equivalence. Same answer.

    Darkness has no speed, cause it aint build up out of particles. Only particles have speed.

    Darkness is I suspect, defined as a lack of photons, which are leaving at the speed of light. ergo, darkness moves at the speed of light.

    And then again: who says photons are particles? photons as particles is just a model, not a truesim. common quantum physics misconception that one.

    A lot of darkness stays pretty still though - for instance the darkness inside my fridge is motionless while I have the door closed.

    ... of course you have to be sure that the light is off, but how

    If darkness has a speed, then where does it go when I turn my light on. Speed is displacement / time. If there's no displacement, there's no speed.

    wouldn't darkness be the lack of light. but heat would still exist. maybe... which would be travelling at the speed of light. so, what's the speed of a vacume?
