All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident: Arthur Schopenhauer -- In questions of science the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual: Galileo Galilei -- Science is a wonderful thing if one does not have to earn one's living at it: Albert Einstein -- When you have eliminated the impossible, what ever remains, however improbable must be the truth: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle -- We all agree that your theory is crazy, but is it crazy enough? Niels Bohr -- Whenever a true theory appears, it will be its own evidence. Its test is that it will explain all phenomena: Ralph Waldo Emerson -- Since the mathematicians invaded Relativity, I do not understand it myself anymore: Albert Einstein -- I would say that the aether is a medium invented by man for the purpose of propagating his misconceptions from one place to another: W.F.G. Swann: -- Most of the fundamental ideas of science are essentially simple, and may, as a rule, be expressed in a language comprehensible to everyone: Albert Einstein -- Physics is mathematical not because we know so much about the physical world, but because we know so little: Bertrand Russell -- If I could explain it to the average person, I would not have been worth the Nobel Prize: R.

The opposite of a profound truth may well be another profound truth: Niels Bohr -- A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it: Max Planck -- Euclid taught me that without assumptions there is no proof.

Abstract:

Many physicists believe in Einstein’s theory because they have never read his papers. In his most “famous” paper [1] Einstein postulated that the speed of light is constant in all coordinate systems. This postulate is obviously absolute nonsense, because a coordinate system is a mathematical construction without physical meaning. A coordinate system exists only in the thoughts and has no restriction with regard to its speed.

Comments

J. Zwarts:
In the article, first page I read:
"In the system which is thought of as being moved, the speed of light along x-axis
(“moving” rigid rod) is c-v and c+v according to Einstein."

This is a wrong interpretation of Einstein.
For the "stationary" observer (for him the rod moves at speed v), the travel time of the light beam
can be found with t1=(L+v.t1)/c to the end of the rod and t2=(L-v.t2)/c for the trip back.
So t1=L/(c-v) and t2=L/(c+v). (L is the length of the rod). Note that light speed is c all the time !
