Special Relativity, Einstein, 1905 Paper, SR refutation
Analysis of the Einstein’s Special Relativity equations derivation, outlined from his 1905 paper "On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies," revealed several contradictions. It imposed, through the speed of light principle, particular values on the space and time coordinates that, when used explicitly in Einstein’s own equation substitutions, led to fundamental contradictions. Furthermore, the space and time coordinates used in the derived transformation equations to obtain the time dilation and length contraction predictions were found to be incompatible with the method used in the derivation to perform the time calculations; no such predictions deemed feasible. The Special Relativity was hence found to be self-refuted.
