|A lot of people think of the Special Relativity answer to the Twins Paradox when they hear "relativity" or "space-time". That version is so incomplete that I consider it wrong. Did you know our GPS satellites automatically adjust for General Relativity? If they adjusted for Special Relativity they wouldn't keep time accurately. Special Relativity was a stop gap calculation that was known to be wrong by Einstein when he proposed it.|
Thats, funny, because GR includes SR. You can't compensate for general relativity without also compensating for special relativity.
General relativity is an attempt to unify Newtonian gravity with special relativity. It depends on it and does not work without it.
SR does not work when dealing with gravity. Its not supposed to - thats what GR is for. The GPS satellites must operate within a strong gravity field and thus must use GR.
For someone who likes to berate others for not understanding your quantum woo, you are rather ignorant of the way things actually work.
Where is your evidence to show that the measurements by actual scientists - which confirm both to the limits that we can measure - are wrong?
Don't have any? Didn't think so.
To rebut creationism you pretty much have to be a biologist, chemist, geologist, philosopher, lawyer and historian all rolled into one. While to advocate creationism, you just have to be an idiot. -- tommorris
