• The Major Problem of the Einstein Cult

    From Pentcho Valev@21:1/5 to All on Sun Jul 4 07:53:41 2021
    Einstein's constant-speed-of-light postulate is obvious nonsense and its metastases are obvious absurdities. So only an all-powerful and merciless ideology can save relativity from collapse:

    "This paper investigates an alternative possibility: that the critics were right and that the success of Einstein's theory in overcoming them was due to its strengths as an ideology rather than as a science. The clock paradox illustrates how relativity
    theory does indeed contain inconsistencies that make it scientifically problematic. These same inconsistencies, however, make the theory ideologically powerful. [...] The gatekeepers of professional physics in the universities and research institutes are
    disinclined to support or employ anyone who raises problems over the elementary inconsistencies of relativity. A winnowing out process has made it very difficult for critics of Einstein to achieve or maintain professional status. Relativists are then
    able to use the argument of authority to discredit these critics. Were relativists to admit that Einstein may have made a series of elementary logical errors, they would be faced with THE EMBARRASSING QUESTION OF WHY THIS HAD NOT BEEN NOTICED EARLIER.
    Under these circumstances the marginalisation of antirelativists, unjustified on scientific grounds, is eminently justifiable on grounds of realpolitik. Supporters of relativity theory have protected both the theory and their own reputations by shutting
    their opponents out of professional discourse. [...] The triumph of relativity theory represents the triumph of ideology not only in the profession of physics bur also in the philosophy of science." Peter Hayes, The Ideology of Relativity: The Case of
    the Clock Paradox https://tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/02691720902741399

    The TEXT IN CAPITALS above shows the major problem of the Einstein cult: they have been teaching 2+2=5 for too long. Einsteinians have known the truth about relativity for at least 20 years:

    "Lee [Smolin] and I discussed these paradoxes at great length for many months, starting in January 2001. We would meet in caf├ęs in South Kensington or Holland Park to mull over the problem. THE ROOT OF ALL THE EVIL WAS CLEARLY SPECIAL RELATIVITY. All
    these paradoxes resulted from well known effects such as length contraction, time dilation, or E=mc^2, all basic predictions of special relativity. And all denied the possibility of establishing a well-defined border, common to all observers, capable of
    containing new quantum gravitational effects." Joao Magueijo, Faster Than the Speed of Light, p. 250 http://www.amazon.com/Faster-Than-Speed-Light-Speculation/dp/0738205257

    Nowadays all Einsteinians know that the speed of light is VARIABLE AS PER NEWTON. Many of them silently leave Einstein's sinking ship and promptly become experts in quantum mechanics, AI, philosophy, biology, COVID-19, climate science, anything:


    Only LIGO fakers will go down with the ship. Their swindle is too recent and it would be difficult for them to convince the world that they are experts in, say, consciousness, like Max Tegmark, or quantum biology, like Jim Al-Khalili.
