Hi
Questioning Einstein is fine with me.
Its incompleteness is evident, in part, in that it
does not confer upon us an ability to travel
which I believe will be found. I appreciate
your statements. Thomas Edison, with his
fifth grade education, certainly comes to mind
as an example of how mandatory a formal education
is.
I think paradoxes sometimes turn out to be
apparent paradoxes. Relativity is not ALL wrong, I think. I am sure Einstein's work
will not ALL stand forever...In fact, he did
rather deny quantum mechanics, and we still
love his Iconship. In university, they sometimes play a politeness game that can be quite ruthless, deceptive, and self-serving.
That is one reason that universities don't work as well as they might.
I could not refute-or-endorse most things on your web site, and yet I can spot when someone is not really answering your ideas, but only playing the politeness/university game with us all.
My college credit in astronomy was obtained
22 years ago by completing a test of my knowledge obtained by personal reading. I have a couple of books which my brother loaned me yesterday: _The Big Bang Never Happened_ by Eric J. Lerner and _Quasars, Redshifts and Controversies_ by Halton Arp. Have you read either of these?
Cordially,
Mike
