The speed of the car + the speed of the beam= THE SPEED OF EJECTION

NOT the entire speed at which the beam traverses the length from point A to B!

after its ejection, it continues at the normal speed of light, leading to NO time dilation, NO warping, NO STAR WARS BS!

GOT YOU, EINSTEIN!

Show the distance of ejection. Show the speed of the light after the ejection relative to the car in car reference frame.

Indeed. But it's not unreasonable to think that light would behave the same way, if you didn't know it was invariant.

But, my good sir, we DO happen to know that the speed of light IS in fact invariant. Wouldnt give a damn about the speed of its source, it would firmly stick to 300,000 ms. Wouldnt change for the queen. and THATS why einstein's theory loops over and touches itself in places that cause it to unravel of its own accord.

Show the distance of ejection. Show the speed of the light after the ejection relative to the car in car reference frame.

the distance of ejection would be irelevant, because the ULTIMATE SPEED OF LIGHT is above that of the source! As long as the source's speed is BELOW that of the speed of light, the speed of ejection would, right from the get go, be a firm 300,000 m/s. So even though we talk about the speed of ejection here, we are actually talking about 'a NULL speed+ the speed of light" which is equal to the speed of light itself.

And that is exactly what Einstein's theory is based on. You seem to be attacking a strawman made of your own misunderstanding.

The speed of light is invariant. And it is independent of the speed of the source. This is what Einstein said. And that is what the page you reference says (in a rather confusing way).

So it looks like we all agree.

You dont have to label everything that doesnt make sense to you 'trollish'. I was making a perfectly seriously dissection of the theory of relativity, far, far from trolling. But call it that if it helps pat your level of intelligence on the back and say 'its ok, old boy. hes just trolling'.

LOL

Speed of light is 299,792,458 m/s, or 300,000,000 m/s, if somebody have bad memory, and want to round it,

but 300,000 m/s, is wrong value.

You should use 300,000 km/s instead.

You should get familiar with blueshift and redshift relativistic Doppler effects,

when object emitting photons travels toward (or counter to) receiver,

Right.

We agree on what? THE SPEED OF LIGHT IS INVARIANT.

What DONT einstein and I agree on?

That in the car analogy, the total speed of the outgoing beam would be that of the car PLUS its own speed.

which is where he is wrong. That never happens. Regardless of the forward momentum of the car, the speed of the emitted light beam NEVER goes above 300,000 ms.

I genuinely do believe I oughta put this post up around a bit, garner it some attention from Higher Minds in the scientific world. Im pretty sure Ive struck the jackpot here with my disprovation.

I dare anybody to disprove what Ive done.

Being accurate.

OK, looks like the tiny stream of resistance that met this my bombshell disprovation on the scientific ground has already dried up, and so far, apart from the repeated cries to 'double check' my facts-which i did and found them perfectly in order- and a bit of silly banter here and there in the absence of any real arguments of substance, nothing really worthy of mentions come my way. Ill take the final verdict to be, therefore, that I am CORRECT in my disprovation of einsteins pet theory.

Yay me.

Not really, no.

You haven't once quoted Einstein here, and all the math and real world evidence is on his side. GPS is still working just fine.

Special relativity

According to the theory of special relativity, the frame of the ship has a different clock rate and distance measure, and the notion of simultaneity in the direction of motion is altered, so the addition law for velocities is changed. This change is not noticeable at low velocities but as the velocity increases towards the speed of light it becomes important. The addition law is also called a composition law for velocities. For collinear motions, the velocity of the fly relative to the shore is given by

The composition formula can take an algebraically equivalent form, which can be easily derived by using only the principle of constancy of the speed of light:[2]

I may win a Nobel Prize because one of Mother Teresa’s members didn’t adhere to the vows of chastity, poverty and obedience, and I can prove it, therefore I’m correct.

We know that now, but that had not been applied to kinematics before special relativity was proposed. So one cannot lean on that in a critique of relativity.

You haven't been criticizing Einstein. You've been criticizing someone else's awkward explanation of relativity. How about going back to the source, and analyzing that?

Ive caught two fundemental flaws in einsteins theory.

I have never seen any valid critique of a scientific theory that contained four errors in its opening sentence.

After reviewing your later comments throughout the thread I find that that condition remains unchanged.

If you are serious about supporting your position you need to critique the theory itself, not a partially inept description of it. I see no evidence that you have even read the original paper. Here it is.

I look forward to a proper analysis from you once you have studied what Einstein actually said. Or an acknowledgement that Einstein and the several tens of thousands of scientists who have studied, understood and accepted his theory, may just be better informed than you.

Even then, to be honest we do not care exactly what Einstein said. First, we know that Einstein in some of his papers made mistakes, both in his mathematics and physical reasoning. Most of these he caught and corrected or were caught by his contemporaries. Any minor mistakes that can now be found are simply of historical value. Secondly, the formalism and understanding of special and general relativity has greatly advanced since Einstein put pen to paper. Any 'attack' on relativity should be made within a modern formalism and not based on Einstein's misunderstandings and typos!

Anyway, DimaMazin points to the main problem as I can see with the line of thought coming from the opening post. Velocities in special relativity are not 'linear' in the sense that 'u+v' is not the observed relativistic velocity.

Especially this, from the article:

Any ray of light moves in the “stationary” system of co-ordinates with the determined velocity c, whether the ray be emitted by a stationary or by a moving body.

That is what relativity is based on. So when Einstein says light speed is invariant he is wrong, but when you say it, it is correct???? And then suddenly all the argumentations of Einstein, based on the invariance of the speed of light are wrong????

And ehhh... why are you so angry, already in your first post?

I believe that the motion of the moving object i.e the car is irrelevant as the light particles leaving the torch will always be traveling at light speed and as light speed is the universal speed limit and that if an object travels faster than light speed time would slow to correct that universal error thus always maintaining light speed so the speed of the car would just become null and void, the time displacement that occurs to correct this sort of error would be minuscule and not even noticeable unless traveling at such speeds for a long period and would only effect the object moving at light speed, that is what I believe until proven that light speed is not the limit.

Also I enjoyed swansont's analogy of the ball throw, if you threw a ball at half the speed of light out of an object also moving at half the speed of light you would just simply keep up with the ball, most likely resulting in the ball hitting you in the face as it loses velocity and you maintain half light speed.

Speed of light + speed of moving platform(the car) = negative time displacement affects the light particles = Speed of light restored.

This is very unclear. What is negative time displacement and how does this effect photons? (One reason I am confused is that the proper time of a photon has no meaning)

space time surrounds everything in the universe and controls the natural order and as such it would simply slow time down around an object to maintain the natural order, time is the Mother Nature of the universe and keeps everything in balance, if I could explain the theory and give the world exact and proven specifications on how time would effect matter traveling faster than light I would be famous but it is at the end of the day an unproven theory, I like many in here would love to know the true mechanics of time but also like many I have theory's that have no proof they are only theory's and not proven or tested.

Okay, space-time is the 'arena' of physics and that indeed has causality written into it.

...and as such it would simply slow time down around an object to maintain the natural order...

As measured by? And what do you mean by 'natural order'? Just causality or something else?

...time is the Mother Nature of the universe and keeps everything in balance...

Quite poetic.

Well we do have special and general relativity that do a good job.

I apologise for posting the theory here, it is a little of subject, as for relativity I think you guys seem to be doing a good job of poking holes into his dreams of proving Einstein wrong. Edited by Matty14189

Indeed. One has to remember just how well tested both special and general relativity are. This is both directly and indirectly. So far there is nothing that suggests, being careful with the domain of validity, that Einsteinian relativity is not a good framework for physics. This is quite annoying as we know that general relativity cannot be the final word on gravity, yet nature is providing few hints as to what should be a more complete theory.
