Whoa... it has. "Should have" doesn't apply and we can't rewrite history,
only record it. There are precedents for Einstein's sin:
"This is the story of a scientific crime. I mean a crime committed by a
scientist against fellow scientists and scholars, a betrayal of the ethics
and integrity of his profession that has forever deprived mankind of
fundamental information about an important area of astronomy and history.
Ptolemy developed certain astronomical theories and discovered that they
were not consistent with observation. Instead of abandoning the theories, he
deliberately fabricated observations from the theories so that he could
claim that the observations prove the validity of his theories. In every
scientific or scholarly setting known, this practice is called fraud, and it
is a crime against science and scholarship. " -- Sir Isaac Newton.

advance of perihelion of Mercury in particular)

Valev, you continue to slag off Einstein almost daily and are becoming
stuck in a rut, spinning your wheels and going nowhere, contributing
nothing further to the benefit of physics.
Move ON, man. There is more to life than griping. If you are not going
to produce a web page of your own, you could at least refer to some
pages with a positive point of view such as
http://www.ebicom.net/~rsf1/sekerin.htm
or even my own:
http://www.androcles01.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/Smart/Smart.htm
http://www.androcles01.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/RR_C7/RelativityRevealed.htm

Criticise ME. I could use some CONSTRUCTIVE criticism to IMPROVE
what I've produced. Make some positive suggestions instead of always
being so negative. Einstein's crap isn't going to go away overnight, and
you'll get no kudos from being a one man army. I give credit where it is
due:
http://www.androcles01.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/Wilson/Wilson.htm
I've seen nothing so far to give you credit for.

(No need for comment on the remainder, which I've read and adds nothing new)

Androcles

| 1. As far as the speed of light is concerned, Newton's particle model
| of light is correct. The speed of light is variable, c'=c+v, where c is
| the speed of photons relative to the light source and v is the relative
| speed of the light source and the observer. This interpretation is
| simple, even trivial: no miracles (time dilation, length contraction
| etc.) can be introduced.
|
| 2. The speed of light is constant, c'=c, independent of v, the relative
| speed of the light source and the observer. In this case miracles (time
| dilation, length contraction etc.) are obligatory - without them the
| falsehood of the principle of constancy of the speed of light would be
| obvious.
|
| The first interpretation is true, the second wrong, and yet the second
| was adopted. That was the beginning of a wrong science of course but by
| no means a sin. The sin started when Einstein implicitly introduced the
| true c'=c+v interpretation, thereby obtaining correct results (e.g. the
| frequency shift factor), and conserved the false principle of constancy
| of the speed of light plus appended miracles, thereby destroying the
| rationality of generations of scientists.
|
| In 1911 Einstein showed that in a gravitational field the speed of
| light is variable and advanced the formula
|
| c' = c(1 + V/c^2)
|
| where V is the gravitational potential. One can apply the equivalence
| principle as shown in
|
| http://www.courses.fas.harvard.edu/~phys16/Textbook/ch13.pdf pp.2-4
|
| Note that V=gh=cv. Substitute this in Einstein's formula and you obtain
| c'=c+v.

"The measured speed of light on Earth must be the same in all directions."

It seemeth impossible for it to be, for if I walk away from a candle set by
the wall and you walk toward the same candle, we then have some motion
between us. If we then divide that motion equally between us, and impart it
to the candle such that it appeareth to be at rest upon the floor upon which
we walk, how then doth the light divide it's motion between us, that we may
both observe it to be the same?

And if I place another candle on the other side of us beside the opposing
wall, such that it is at rest with respect to the first candle, how then
shall I determine the light I approach and the light I recede from, that
they be of equal motion to me?
And yet one more candle, be it placed between us in the room, at centre,
that we may both recede from it and still determine that the motion of light
from all candles be the same?

I am but a simple man, and sorely perplexed by these deliberations, for it
is truly astounding that these assertions be true. Explain this wondrous
concept any sensible way you can, but gently, for it shall surely confound
me and cause my head to ache.

"The measured speed of light on Earth must be the same in all directions."

"All directions" in above means: the directions in MM apparatus. I suppose
that Mr Rode knows the Michelson-Gale experiment.

According to me theory that the Earth and the planets are carried within
the gigantic Aether-vortex of the Sun is the only sensible interpretation
of the MM and MG (G=Gale) experiments.

Mr Valev is a prime example of a failure of the Bulgarian education system.
His history of railing against science is well known. Thermodynamics was
originally his prime focus, now he has a complex on Einstein.

Standard methods of proof, of course. It is often easy to prove a conjecture
false, the commonest is the counterexample. In many cases it is unnecessary,
the burden of proof is upon the claimant. If you say the sky is blue, I
would
have the burden of disproving it if I disagreed. If you say the sky is
green,
you have the burden. Neither one of us can prove the colour of the sky to a
blind person.


| Interpretations are subjective.

So is colour. That doesn't imply that one cannot prove the sky is blue,
the exception being as I stated. One assumes when discussing proof
that the prover and provee have all their faculties. The proof is simple,
but it does require the provee to take an active part in the proof and
actually
look up. If he fails to do that you cannot prove the sky is blue to him, but
that
is then willful ignorance and obstinacy on the part of the provee who
refuses
to accept proof. There are none so blind as those that will not see.

For example, Tom Roberts has openly stated that
"This is PHYSICS, not math or logic, and "proof" is completely irrelevant."
That is obstinacy and willful ignorance. It is impossible to prove anything
to Tom Roberts, but it cuts ways. Tom Roberts cannot now prove anything
to anybody. He may as well go home and forget about it, because he would
only be contradicting himself in anything he said forthwith. He's shot
himself
in the foot.

Provide a real example of how to falsify a theoretical interpretation
relative to some other theoretical interpretation, which is what Valev
claimed is possible.

In other words, assume that there are two theories, A and B, that have
the same physical content (make the same experimental predictions), but
are different interpretations of the underlying physical causality and
ontology. Assuming that both A and B work, show that A is the "true"
interpretation, and B is the "false" interpretation.

BTW, should both A and B not work, I don't know what could be said
about their interpretations.

In science, arguments like this are not settled by individuals making

Scientific fact is whatever the majority of experts in a given field of

Given a certain set of observations, it the relevant theory we give out
personal credence to that we use to interpret the physical data.
Theories "explain" what's going on. It is both their strength and
weakness. In physics, we can never know if an explanation is true.

What you ask for is embedded here.
http://physics.ucr.edu/~wudka/Physics7/Notes_www/node10.html
The classic example is the Ptolemaic geocentric theory versus the Copernican
heliocentric theory. Both make accurate predictions of eclipses and
juxtaposition
of planets. You'll not "prove" Ptolemy wrong, but you'll spend a lifetime on
the mathematics to be accurate. After all, a "theory" is a mathematical
model
of a system and one can use either. The simpler is the better. "Proof" in
this
case is "preference", as opposed to rigorous mathematical proof.
Thus OJ Simpson was not convicted of murder (proof beyond reasonable doubt
in criminal court) but was made to pay (proof by a preponderance of the
evidence
in civil court). One jury was not convinced he killed, the other was.
Mathematicians are rigorous and chastise themselves if they cannot prove
their theorems, and the judges are other mathematicians. It is a game to
them
with rigid rules that must be adhered to. In theoretical physics the rules
are
more relaxed. Thus Einstein "convinced" many but did not prove to the
satisfaction of a mathematician, he wasn't one. He lacked the rigour and
was satisfied with himself, having used mathematical jargon.
Pentcho raises MMX as a case in point. Here it is:
http://www.androcles01.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/Smart/MMXwind.gif
That's what you have. Work it out. The supposed aether is blowing by.
Why doesn't it affect the light which is "waving" in the aether?
The simple answer is that light is not waving in the aether.
Einstein's theory fails by Ockham's razor. Now you could show
that if a real air wind blew by, it would show up a shift. Trouble
is a wind worth 500 tornadoes would be needed, so a different method
has to be found. That was done in 1913 by Sagnac.
http://www.androcles01.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/Sagnac/Sagnac.htm
Sagnac is used today as a gyroscope. It is useful. After 100 years
nobody has found a use for Einstein, except to bullshit and say
"I'm so clever, I understand Einstein. Hire me and pay me a lot of money."
Now the world is getting tired of it, so only governments hire these people,
and even they have cancelled the Supercollider, the research is getting
nowhere.

If neither work they are both quickly rejected. That's simple.

Look carefully at this. A clock has to have two second hands and
the time between them has to be averaged to make Einstein's "theory"
work, and then the train and the camel must never reunite to compare
clocks.

Ok, then, prove the sky is green. <shrug> I'm still calling it blue, no
matter
what you say (and take that filter off the spectrometer). What you've just
said
is exactly what Pentcho is complaining about. You want to be highly paid,
use expensive equipment and all to prove the sky wasn't green after all.
I'm not kidding either. Gravity probes are out there, looking for gravity
waves
because some idiot thinks there might be some.
That's not science. Science is observation, investigation and explanation.
IN THAT ORDER. What you call "science" has it backwards. You are looking
for black holes and gravity waves because someone theorized they exist.
You may as well theorize the sky should be green then ask for funding to
find out why it isn't. The government doesn't care, it only taxpayers money.
Write a paper nobody will read except some bored student to add to
his PH.D. thesis and show he added to the sum of human "knowledge."

Nonsense. Discoveries are made by individuals, whether the world
agrees or not. By your reckoning, Galileo should have been hung,
drawn and quartered for heresy because all the experts disagreed
with his findings. The "experts" refuse to look at the work of genius,
they are invariably jealous, a very human emotion.

That was true before Einstein and Maxwell. Not any more. People go
looking for what is not there, athough it is good thing Michelson looked
and found the aether wasn't there or we'd still have that crap today
and no ring laser gyroscopes.
