for anybody doing gravitational physics. I've read several lenghthy discussions Van Flandern has had with the likes of Steve Carlip, Tom Roberts, and John Baez and their main objection to Van Flandern is his assertion that he actually understands general relativity. He was asked to and refused to make a prediction for the results of the Kopeikin experiment. He eventually admitted that the results should agree with GR but tried to make an argument that the experiment wouldn't ACTUALLy be measuring the speed gravity propagates. Pretty much confirming that he doesn't understand general relativity. His assertion that clocks don't measure time and his assertion that 'clocks don't measure time' has some bearing on general relativity is further proof that he doesn't understand.
