If any of these idiots would stop and think for a few minutes, the answers are right in front of their noses!
First, I agree with Newton that field theorys are nice constructs for calculation but are essentially internally inconsistant concepts.
And second, all of the problems in modern physics that I am aware of derive from the missunderstanding of time. Everyone believes clocks measure time. Even Einstein, after he proved clocks did not measure time, still used time as a coordinate in his geometry. An error I would not expect of a highschool student.
Never, in the history of the world has anyone ever created a device which measures time. They all measure Einstein's "proper time": path length in his geometry!

This is the confusion which has held up "science" for a hundred years.

Have fun -- DoctorDick
