EINSTEIN'S SIN



The experiment of MichelsonMorley should have led to two competing
interpretations:
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.24
Note that V=gh=cv. Substitute this in Einstein's formula and you obtain
c'=c+v.

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)

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.

 How can any theoretical interpretation be proved true of false?
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.

The Google record is there. He's now wounded forever by his careless
statement.
There is a huge difference between "It is" and "I believe it, therefore it
is", and that
difference is what science is alll about. Subjectivity must be eliminated
and replaced
by objectivity. Alas, it is human to be subjective and people are easily
swayed
by clever politicians.
Sticks bend when we put them in water. Proof: We can see they do.
Light bends at a water/air interface. Sticks do not bend, that is absurd.
What do we do, trust our logic or trust our eyes?
I for one will never trust a single word Roberts may say. I never did, but
now I have complete proof of his stupidity. Once I was as sceptic, now
I'm a provee. Roberts has convinced me of his stupidity. Proven it, even.
Moreover, Roberts is the kind of guy that will not renounce his utterances,
say "Oops, sorry, I was drunk when I wrote that!" He'll carry on, because
it is his nature to be an arrogant, selfrighteous bastard and a fool.
Androcles.

 How can any theoretical interpretation be proved true of false?
Standard methods of proof, of course.

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
eyeball inspections. They are settled by technicians using instruments
that measure frequencies of light (not quite objective, but
intersubjective).

Scientific fact is whatever the majority of experts in a given field of
study says it is. There is no other way.

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.

This subthread is not about Tom Roberts. It's about Valev claiming that
a theoretical interpretation can be claimed to be true or false.
