In doing some work above and beyond the call of duty for my physics class, I Googled Relativity and found, on Google books, the theory straight from the horse’s mouth. I confess, though, that I didn’t bother reading it since I noticed an ad at the bottom of the page informing me that relativity is bullocks.
Personally, this was quite a relief, since if it’s not real, I don’t need to bother learning it. The link brought me to a site where I learned that Einstein made a mathematical error and that the writer at the site, who pursued a Phd in Physics, has corrected it with his own theory of Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems.
The site seems to address experimental results as well as theoretical problems with relativity, which, as we all know, is just a theory. And, frankly, the discussion was more or less completely lost on me. However, it’s presented convincingly enough and, as we all know, true scientists will often place ads on Google with their revolutionary discoveries as a means of telling the world, since the scientific community is too stuck up and exclusive to accept them, much like a 4th grader’s treehouse.
How convenient these advertisements are! Just a few weeks ago, I was also a firm believer in evolution, and might still be today if an advertisement didn’t direct me to a site that informed me Creationism — ooops, I mean Intelligent Design — is an Obvious Truth — just like what the Discovery Institute and friends promise, providing both points of views has really helped broaden my horizon from the one-sided perspective that I get in my science classes.
So, rather than do the problem sets related to relativity, I plan on printing out a few pages from this Relativity Challenge website and ask my professor to engage us in debate as a class. Rather than learn about relativity, we should have an open discussion about what we all believe. Because, let’s face it, belief is the most powerful thing in the world, and we shouldn’t ever be taught something that contradicts our beliefs.
