Alex,

As usual you have misrepresented my assertions. I said "Newton fails at velocities near c."

I bet you cannot correctly solve the following problems with Newtonian physics:

(1) Graph ƒ(x) = 7/8x^5 + 23/2x^4 + 459/8x^3 + 541/4x^2 + 151x + 65
(if it works, I'll take your word for it ;)

(2) Describe for us, using Newtonian physics, the minimum mass a star must possess in order to become a Black Hole.

(3) Using Newtonian physics, can you give us a formula that describes Hawking radiation?

Now, you have three choices: you can pretend to correctly answer these questions, and expose your shortcomings to the real physicists in here (I am not one, but those who are will surely recognize your blunders); you can scamper away from responding at all; or you can swallow your pride and admit you are wrong...

again.

-LH
