Absolute space is seen to exist from the fixed stars and from the fact that the velocity of light c with respect to absolute space such that the observed velocity c^{*} = c - v (the absolute velocity of the Earth) as shown by Roemer, Bradley, Sagnac, Conklin, Marinov, and others. The gravitational potential due to the fixed stars Φ_{0} = c^{2}, is the same everywhere in absolute fixed space. Mass-energy, being gravitational energy mΦ_{0} = mc^{2}, means the absolute kinetic energy is zero only when stationary in absolute space. The Michelson-Morley result is a classical Doppler effect in absolute space-time.

Gravitation with a finite velocity of action c yields gravity waves and resolves Seeliger's paradox. A cosmological constant β_{0} in a uniform universe accounts for the cosmological red shift with a Hubble constant H = β_{0}/c, thereby resolving Olber's paradox. The 2.7?K cosmic background radiation is cosmologically red shifted starlight.

Cosmology is based upon an infinite, perpetual, steady-state universe, uniform in the large. A flux of high entropy waste radiated off into deep space forces local entropy reducing processes, such as the condensation of low entropy stars from high entropy gas and dust, or the generation of low entropy life from a high entropy environment. Such ordering occurs only as a local fluctuation of the order of 10^{9} years in time and light years in space. An ordered death as super-massive bodies is avoided when two collide allowing mass to escape from their gravitational traps to again create disorder in gas and dust.

**English reviews:**

This book gives a good overview of arguments against the Special Relativity Theory. Despite a few loose ends and some fuzzy reasoning the authors do a good job convincing the reader that all is not well in SRT land. Reference is made to theoretical and experimental proofs (with a good reference list) against Einstein's interpretation of the relativity theory. But even Lorentz' version of the relativity theory is put in doubt, and some old ("forgotten") and new electrodynamics theories are discussed. A good addition to standard text books, to compensate for their SRT cult!

I felt very confirmed in my own evaluation of special and general relativity. My approach was to use logic and linguistic analysis to arrive at the same conclusions that are derived in the book using experiments, historical and mathematical analyis. The authors are invited to to read my critique and to compare our two approaches. I would like to discuss this with them further. From Annalen Der Physik I received the response - we will not publish or even consider any critique of relativity as the subject is closed for us!
