Einstein has a simple equation so easy that hopfully both of you guys will shut up.
The clocks are different because of the speed the GPS satellites traviel at.
Like the Twin paradox, one leaves goes to Betelgeuse (520 LY) traviling at the speed of light(99.9999%) at the age of one, the other stayes on earth. When the twin returns, he will only be 2.4760 years old, the other would be... 1041 years old, basicly 6ft under.
The formula is:
ST = ETx sqrt((1 - (v/c)^2))
C=299,792km/s
v=speed of object (99.9999%=299,791.700208km/s)
