    Here's a (rather lengthy) excerpt from an article on the topic. I will admit that his paper is long on assertion and short on demonstrative evidence, but the concepts are discussed in some detail,...

    Andrew said: "Before you even get started, ECI is not a preferred frame. It is just a convenient frame used to analyze the total elapsed proper time of the westward/eastward and Earth-bound clocks."...

    Freek said: 'They used both General and Special Relativity, nothing else.

    There's a whole lot I could say in response to your dogmatic monologue, Freek, but I won't try to do so at this time. Let me ask you one thing though.

    Do you concede that the theory HK used to...

    Freek said: "Please do not comment in any other thread than this one."

    Why do you ask me that? Is it because Andrew has shrilly called me crazy, a crank, a crackpot, a liar, ignorant, etc., so...

    Janus, I have another question for you if you're still here (or come back).

    The post of mine which you just quoted and responded to (along with another) was, I'm sure, made the the thread...
  7. By the way, Freek, I also agree with the...

    By the way, Freek, I also agree with the statements I excerpted from the wiki article. Apparently Andrew does not, since he disputed my response to Janus, which said basically the same thing as the...

    Andrew said: "BOTH are moving, motion is relative, crank."

    The question was about the LT, Andrew, not any particular state of affairs. Maybe you should haul that smart ass of yours to reading...

    Freek said: "I agree with everything the physicist says about SR in that answer. What is it that you do not agree with?"

    I'm with you, Freek. I agree with everything he says about protocols in...

    You don't even have to do any calculations to understand that my claim is correct, Andrew. Let's take an example:

    An observer on earth sees a spaceship travelling at whatever speed is required...

    How about this statement from the "Ask a physicist" website, Andrew?

    "... they both see the other person moving through time slower (you will always see your own clock running normally, in all...

    How about this statement, from the same article, eh, Andrew?

    "if a second observer accompanied the "moving" clock, each of the observers would perceive the other's clock as ticking at a slower...

    Let me make it simple for you, Andrew. A wiki article on time dilation says this: "Special relativity indicates that, for an observer in an inertial frame of reference, a clock that is moving...
  14. Heh, Andrew. Puzzle me this, eh? According to...

    Heh, Andrew. Puzzle me this, eh?

    According to the LT, as between two inertial, relatively moving clocks, which one will be slow? It will be the clock that is moving, right?

    Janus said: "It is not mandatory that either astronaut assume that he is motionless. He is allowed to make this assumption, but he is not required to. It generally more convenient to work from this...

    Here is a question for you, Layman.

    If we performed a version of the Hafele-Keating experiment on Mars, would the results be consistent when viewed from a frame at rest in relation to the axis...

    "No. it doesn't "deviate". You have no clue what a test theory is."

    Heh. Read the wiki article. A few more excerpts:

    "An experiment to test the theory of relativity cannot assume the...

    "Mansouri and Sexl did not do any experiments."

    Well, that depends on what you want to call an "experiment," I guess. They analyzed a number or previously conducted experiments to see if the...

    A brief excerpt from a wiki article summarizing the results of the Mansouri-Sexl experiments:

    "By giving the effects of time dilation and length contraction the exact relativistic value, this test...

    Clock A runs slower than clock B, and, at the same time, clock B runs slower than clock A.

    This is a self-refuting logical contradiction. You, Speedfreak, are calling for experiments to prove...

    SR basically says that time dilation is solely a function of the relative motion between any two objects. This has been disproven also.

    London, Berlin, Milan, New York, Los Angeles, etc. never...

    speedfreak said: "The reason for this is that all three clocks were moving relative to an inertial frame at rest in relation to a frame around which the Earth rotates!"

    Exactly!

    Post 69, eh? That says:

    "To explain away your madness:
    -in the frame of clock A , clock B is running slower than clock A
    -in the frame of clock B , clock A is running slower than clock B"
    ...

    Just answer the question, eh, Andrew? What do you think "reciprocal" means?
