"... the second principle seems absurd: A stone thrown from a speeding train can do far more damage than one thrown from a train at rest"
And if we take light to consist of particles and assume that these particles obey Newton's laws
and we then expect light to be moving towards us with a speed that is offset by the speed of the distant emitter
"The Michelson-Morley experiment is fully compatible with an emission theory of light that contradicts the light postulate."
"I introduced the principle of the constancy of the velocity of light, which I borrowed from H. A. Lorentz's theory of the stationary luminiferous ether.
