Many contemporary theoretical scientists are considering ideas on the distortion of time and space for objects approaching light speed, extrapolated from Einstein's theories on relativity. My illustrated thesis challenges the widely held belief in 'time dilation', and examines inaccuracies and erroneous results, criticizing Einstein's 'thought experiments' with his 'light clock', (which avoids a conflicting scientific principle) when he employs Pythagoras to determine the extended time of his clock's tick for a light beam between two mirrors. In this paper I detail the weakness of several current scientists’ examples of 'time dilation', including those of Brian Cox, Russell Stannard, Jim Al-Khalili, Michael Brookes, and others whilst I offer alternative interpretations of this apparent phenomenon. ....
