math is a critical component of all technological advancement. I say that Theoretical Physics has also severely abused it.

It goes this way: Galileo said that if a ship is passing a dock, it makes no difference if it is thought of as the ship passing with the dock the Rest Frame Reference, or if the ship is the RFR and the dock is passing. I agree with that. That is legitimate Relativity.

Mathbabble says this: If a car traveling at 100-kph strikes an elephant, it makes no difference if we use the elephant as the RFR, or if we use the car as the RFR, and consider the elephant to be doing 100-kph. And this is correct as far as the energy release at impact.

But Relativity states that if this is the case, then we can also use a "transform", and transfer all attributes across the equation. This is where math becomes disembodied and ignores the mechanical realities.

Einstein effectively decided that the elephant is capable of accelerating itself up to 100-kph!! Lorentz and Einstein completely illegitimately transferred properties of waves to length of bodies of matter, time and space. Gauss/Riemann/Wheeler did the same thing to curve empty space.

They and you are the crackpots, if you think this equates to reality.

The empirical evidence, and even Einstein's predictions, have been misinterpreted.

My theory is correct, AS PER EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE THAT HAS ARISEN AFTER MY PUBLICATION, if you're using that system. Or do you prefer a double standard?
