Implications of possible travel faster than light

Today the press is reporting that researchers at CERN may have discovered that neutrinos are capable of travelling faster than the speed of light.  While the view appears to be that this may be an error rather than a discovery, I am curious about what the theological implications might be if this is found to be correct, given that it appears to have implications for the idea of causality.

Response: I don't see why it might have theological implications esp since effect (if real) seem to be tiny. Except that it emphasises the fact that we should not be overconfident about scientific knowledge.
