Mathematical Inconsistency in Relativity's Original Paper of 1905
Year: 2010 Pages: 5
A criticism has been found quite popular in scientific study that the acceptance of relativity is based on faith. Tragic to relativity, this criticism is found to be supported by the most fundamental equation from relativity's original paper ?On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies? (herein after referred to as The Paper), published in 1905. Believing in relativity, two observers moving with respect to each other may not feel troublesome to accept that they do not have the same time readings regarding the same sequence of events. What must trouble them is to accept whose time reading should have dilated to match the time reading from the other observer. Of course, to someone who has followed relativity well with an unshakable faith, it may be only a simple mathematical matter to find out. However, can relativity really make things so simple for the two observers? With the same principle that relativity allures them to accept the concept of time dilation, relativity also agitates arguments that are equally legitimate between them to disagree with each other. When they finally settle some physical quantities that both can commonly accepted for time comparison, they found relativity has only left them with 1=0. Faiths from each of them toward relativity only end up with confronting each other, as well as confronting with acceptable mathematical rules.
