Einstein's theory of relativity is shown to be a physical theory of limited experimental validity. Twelve different experiments seem to disprove its two postulates. From Challenging Modern Physics: Questioning Einstein's Relativity Theories by Al Kelly (bio) we find: A recent ingenious test by Wang et al. (2003) shows that the Sagnac result is also achieved by sending out and back again light in a straight-line portion of the light path.

Kelly, A. Challenging Modern Physics: Questioning Einstein's Relativity Theories (Brown Walker Press, 2005). Escape from Einstein (Kneat Kompany. Hatch, R. Escape from Einstein (Kneat Kompany 1992). Special theory of relativity. We examine closely the definition proposed by Einstein in the theory of special relativity, and finally we analyse carefully the two immediate implications of the Lorentz transformation, namely the time dilation and the length contraction. This last does not seem to have a true physical meaning.

This book starts with a description of the special theory of relativity Experiments described in this book show that it is not special relativity but another basic law of physics that.

This book starts with a description of the special theory of relativity. It is shown that Einstein was not the first to derive the famous equation E mc2, which has become synonymous with his name. Next, experimental evidence that cannot be explained by special relativity is given. In the light of this evidence, the two basic postulates of the special theory of relativity on the behaviour of light are shown to be untenable. A new theory (universal relativity) is developed, which conforms to the experimental evidence.

Einstein's theory of Relativity is supposedly so complicated that only a few exceptionally gifted minds can understand it at all, and we are asked to suspend disbelief at its logical inconsistencies and just go on our way minding our own business

Einstein's theory of Relativity is supposedly so complicated that only a few exceptionally gifted minds can understand it at all, and we are asked to suspend disbelief at its logical inconsistencies and just go on our way minding our own business. Discussions about the merits or dismerits of Relativity have raged on for decades, perhaps a century, without having come to a clear conclusion

Modern astronomy, electronics, nuclear physics and nuclear energy for . Poincaré and Lorentz both postulated theories of relativity, but Einstein's was the most revolutionary.

Modern astronomy, electronics, nuclear physics and nuclear energy for example, rely implicitly on much of Einstein’s thought. Few physicists have bothered to question or test the general theory of relativity since it became established as one of the landmarks of scientific thought. The world of Newtonian physics which Einstein took by storm already had cracks in it. Newton postulated rest and motion in relation to an immovable, absolute and featureless space, a concept which he later refined to that of the luminiferous ether.

Newton's Laws held for 300 years until Einstein developed the 'special theory of relativity' in 1905. Experiments done since then show anomalies in that theory. This book starts with a description of the special theory of relativity. It is shown that Einstein was not the first to derive the famous equation E = mc2, which has become synonymous with his name. Next, experimental evidence that cannot be explained by special relativity is given. In the light of this evidence, the two basic postulates of the special theory of relativity on the behaviour of light are shown to be untenable. A new theory (universal relativity) is developed, which conforms to the experimental evidence. The movement of a conductor near a pole of a magnet and the movement of that pole near the conductor does not always give the same result. It has been claimed that this contradicts relativity theory. Experiments described in this book show that it is not special relativity but another basic law of physics that is contradicted - Faraday's Law. The Big Bang theory of the beginning of the universe is questioned and an alternative proposed. The source of much of the mysterious missing 'dark matter' that has been sought for decades by astronomers is located. An explanation of the shapes of some galaxies is proffered.

This is a very interesting and controversial discussion of electromagnetic and gravitational theory and why Special Relativity is not adequate to explain their interaction. Most scientists accept Special Relativity as fact; however, there are many unexplained fallacies with it. In my opinion, this book and others like it will eventually result in way which allow us to manipulate gravity using very intense electromagnetic fields and superconductivity.

When I was in college I took a course in logical calculus. In that course the professor said, `If one were to ever formulate a tautology, any tautology, that was universally accepted by society as `true', you could then corrupt that society any way you wanted.' A tautology, in this case, was considered to be a `statement whose truth is based on itself' - a self-referential `circular argument' whose validity is self-contained, and not based on reality. An example of this is the phrase, `this sentence is false.' Is it true, or isn't?

I have come to believe that this modern day `tautology' is, in fact, the Theory of Relativity. I am convinced that what began life thousands of years ago as a simple paradox by a man named Zeno, has become a mathematical cabal by a man named Einstein. The error in thought is no different - one is no more profound than the other. The only difference is that one is buried under layers of incomprehensible math that even expert physicist seldom understand.

While my interests have taken me away from physics, I once was very good at it. My experience tells me what has gone on with physics has gone on in philosophy, in religion, and in education in general. We call it Relativism. Therefore my interests have led me back to physics. Yet, for me to be truly an authority in my field, I need to become proficient in this field, and I need a book that will do that.

In the field of physics, there are a few good books on this subject. `The Electric Sky', `Questioning Einstein', and `The Virtue of Heresy' come to mind. They approach the subject very common sensically and proceed simply, yet fall short of giving you a real proficiency in the subject. There are other books, like Mr. Kelly's, that are obviously intended for a more learned audience, yet leave out the `path' that might allow even a moderately proficient reader to fully appreciate what he is saying. Whereas one style preaches to the choir, the other is trying to convince the enemy. As in my own field of study I've come to realize, the one is already convinced, the other will never be convinced.

I think the trouble with this book is one primarily of organization, and secondarily of knowing who your audience is. While I have no doubt Mr. Kelly is supremely capable on the subject, the book reads like a roller coaster. At least for me, it was not presented in a way that gave me real confidence in the matter. Perhaps the book wasn't written for someone like me, but then, who was it written for? The audience I think it was written for, academia, will only further mock and ridicule Mr. Kelly. They will never be persuaded because their authority, their financial well-being, their reputations prevent it, nor will they buy the book. Therefore, it would have been better had he forgotten about them.

Mr. Kelly is a good writer. He knows his stuff. Some parts are very entertaining. Some parts are very informative. But some parts left me totally bewildered. Not necessarily because they were so difficult, but because the matter wasn't presented very methodically. It seems he was more concerned with belittling the academia that hold him in contempt than teaching me physics, something he keeps returning to at inconvenient times. That's too bad because I would really like to know what Mr. Kelly knows. I've gotten a hint, but that's all.

It seems to me the issue here is this: Relativism has made everything from physics to philosophy incomprehensible, therefore, the alternative approach should be complete common sense and comprehensible, top to bottom. I think Mr. Kelly should write this kind of book, a text book, forgetting about what academia thinks, who are the `good guys' and the `bad guys', whether the peer review process stinks, and just teach me the physics in a useful way that I can have confidence in the matter and the proficiency in a debate to hold my own. From what I've read, relativity deserves to be contested. Yet the present generation of physicists, like the present generation of philosophers, educators and clerics is lost. We will never gain them back, nor we will ever gain the platform they now preach from. Their belligerence prevents it. Books like Mr. Kelley's would be better directed at the next generation, truly explaining the material, giving the facts simple to complex, building as you go, explaining the errors and providing the alternatives.

Please Mr. Kelly, you are an educator. Give it another go! Teach me physics!

I agree with Al Kelly on a number of points. Most Einsteinian relativity critics including Kelly point out the absurdity of Lorentz symmetry (reciprocity). The popular media tend to make it look like Einstein came up with everything associated with his relativity theories. The Lorentz transformations were developed from the physics of Heaviside, Vogt, Fitzgerald, Lamor, Lorentz and Poincare before Einstein and are considered to be asymmetric in pre-Einsteinian physics, but, unfortunately, most people don't know the difference. The Lorentz asymmetry makes the aether a preferred frame of reference. Newton, Huygens and Soldner all theorized that light would bend in a gravitational field long before Einstein published his general theory of relativity. The aether is NOT at absolute rest based on Newtonian Mechanics (see Einstein and the Ether by Ludwik Kostro page 18) in spite of the common wrong assumption that it is. You can argue that special relativity is impossible to prove because no instrument can be made absolutely accurate to show that the speed of light is absolutely constant. The Michelson-Morley experiment cannot be proven to be a complete null for the same reason. Undergraduate physics experiments also show that gravity is not curved space. If space was curved in a gravitational field, then projectiles moving through a gravitational field would all follow the same path regardless of velocity, but as the experiments show, the faster the object is traveling, the straighter its path. Eric Baird's aether density gradient theory seems to be a good alternative to the curved space theory of general relativity. GR math might also work here. Based on this theory, the properties of the aether differ with gravitational potential and is responsible for the bending of a beam of light, gravitational time dilation effect (demonstrated by atomic clocks), and the force of gravity. Einstein wrote his relativity theories before Hubble discovered galaxies and evidence for the big bang. After Einstein, the velocity of the earth relative to the cosmic microwave background radiation (CMBR) has been measured (see for example Wrinkles in Time by George Smoot). Some compare this to an aether drift experiment, but if Dayton C. Miller's experiments are valid, this might show that the CMBR velocity isn't based on aether drift, since Miller's velocity and Smoot's velocity are in two different directions. This would mean that our big bang universe is moving through the aether and is not at rest relative to the aether as is commonly assumed. Space and aether are both probably infinite and eternal and we live in one of an infinite number of big bang universes in the same three dimensional space. It seems that a lot of experiments appear to support Einsteinian relativity, but this might be due to the elusiveness of the aether (Lorentz transformations, etc.). The experiments can also be argued to support the Lorentz aether theory. The Lorentz contraction was originally proposed to explain the null result of the Michelson Morley experiment. There's a number of experiments that don't agree with Einteinian relativity, which are ignored by the mainstream physics community. Reginald Cahill at Flinders University in Adelaide has a theory that gas filled interferometers give a partial null in the Michelson Morley experiment, whereas a complete null is obtained with vacuum interferometers.
