Hi Moose and Nakayama,
GPS was just an example that I heard of. You must realise that when a scientific theory is a basis of technology, that there is not much more to be sceptic about. Only one question may always be asked again: where is the border of the theory? Is it valid under all circumstances? And there we know there are some problems that indicate that the present forms of relativity and quantum physics are not the last word about the physical universe.
L. Essen, the inventor of the atomic clock -you cannot mess with him- wrote some articles discrediting the experiments made by Relativists with his invention. He wrote letters to the journal Nature in 1977, also in 1988, where he said, “Einstein’s theory of relativity is invalidated by its internal errors...Einstein’s use of a thought experiment, together with his ignorance of experimental techniques, gave a result which fooled himself and generations of scientists...claims frequently made that the theory is supported by experimental evidence do not withstand a close scrutinity...Insofar as the theory is thought to explain the result of the Michelson-Morley experiment I am inclined to agree with Soddy that it is a swindle; and I do not think Rutherford would have regarded it as a joke, had he realised how it would retard the national development of science.”
THe farse of Relativity has been hidden by fanatics who want to impose their imaginations over the dominions of science.
BUT: when particle accelerators are build, where particles must be pushed at exactly the right moment, an this thechnology works (i.e. at the calculated times showers of partices enter the detectors), and for these calculations to be correct one needs relativity,
Relativity is not necessary to explain that particles are affected by speed in several ways. Such is a natural process and not a magical event where a non physically existing time is affected.
then there is not much more to question about it.
In your dreams, such is your wish. Reality is that scientists are now waking up from the dream of Relativity and are questioning its validity. Something which is an essential step in science: the continued review of the validity of theories.
When gravitational lenses are photographed,
Illusions created by distance by the presence of gases and particles in space. We ourselves have an atmospheric lense which create the illusion that the Sun, moom and stars are located right where we see them. Reality is that all the bodies located outside our atmosphere are some degree apart from our focus. The displacement of their images is caused bt=y the difference the outer space with greater vacuum and our atmosphere with several gases inside of it.
Such “gravitational lenses” are obsolete ideas. Einstein believed in such events by ignorance. Einstein didn’t know that between the Sun and earth there are gases and particles, specially surrounding the circle of the Sun.
The displacement of images is a simple process of refraction, this is to say, light passing through two mediums of different density. The images reflect clearly this natural phenomena, there are views of stars or galaxies refleike a simplected several times in the gases around the scene, as a simple mirage duplicated in the interior of a sphere surface.
when atomic clocks show different times when they relatively move,
Atomic clocks cannot be tested on ground against low gravity and acceleration. Even guys from NASA recognize that acceleration can affect the functional work of attomic clocks.
when decay times of subatomic partices relate to their velocities,
Speed affecting the particle, a common phenomena.
when the motion of Merury is explained,
Le Verrier aded an imaginary planet(called Vulcano) orbiting in the same path with Mercury and his calculations were as good as Relativity. When astronomers looked for such twin planet of Mercury, nothing was found and his theory was discarded.
Einstein added an imaginary time to his calculations and the periphelion of Mercury also coincided with his numbers, but, using the same review as the one made with Le Verrier, we have that neither the planet of Le Verrier and neither the dilating time of Eimnstein are physically existent. Relativity is discarded by its lack of providing the physical existence of time.
Also, Relativity fails miserably to accomplishh the same results with the rest of planets. So, the theory is a fake.
when the relation between electric and magnetic fields cannot be understood fully without relativity, what is there to question?
Without relativity? Where? How? Motion is the ruler, not such imaginary space-time. Besides, even Lorents is under scrutinity and errors have been found in is calculations. Check Lorentz wrong by DR. Lucy Haye.
There is no dogmatism here, just a lot of empirical evidence, and of mathematical consistency.
Excuse me, but there are other more accurate explanations to explain the observations than the fantasies of Relativity.
It seems that when our fundamental intuitions about space and time are questioned,
Of course, in science you must show the evidence of the physical existence of time, otherwise your words are nbo more than ideas, fantasies, imaginations, philosophy, anything but science.
some people get insecure (ups, this is ad hominum…).
On the contrary, I am very confident that time doesn’t exist physically, and I read that lots of scientists doubt of its existence. The insecurity is not in others but some -small group of scientists- who don’t want to recognize that they are plain wrong.
My opinion on that: relativity has no influence on our normal life assumptions. Nobody will notice It is only in the higher ‘artefacts’ of technology that it has influence on us.
Relativity has no influence at all in the universe, the good for nothing theory is just a good entertainment for mathematicians, like playing chess.
Some people believe that great chess players can be excellent strategists of war, but reality is that such game cannot be compared to what wars are in reality. Otherwise the great chess players should be called to win wars.
The same happen with Relativity, it is a fiction game where troops of seconds are tortured when objects attack going fast, but such is just a scientific game. Nothing realistic comes from such imaginations.
I’ll hope the documentary about the farse of Relativity to come soon, so people will have the opportunity of being informed of the new approach of science and people will have the right to choose which one of the opposite scientific tendencies to be trusted.
