In our everyday world we know that different observers measure the speed of a moving object differently depending upon their own speed. For example an observer standing on a platform may measure the speed of a motor bike as 100kmph. Another observer travelling in a bus at 40kmph in the same direction will measure the speed of the same motor bike as 60kmph. And the motor cyclist himself will measure the speed of his bike as zero with reference to him. So the speed of any object is relative and depends upon the reference frame of the observer. This is what commonsense tells us. But apparently this commonsense can’t be applied to Light. Relativity preaches us that light always travels with the speed ‘c’ (3×108m/sec) irrespective of the reference frame of the observer.
If we ask why, some relativists put that down to Maxwell. It is true that Maxwell had deduced the value of ‘c’ (speed of light) mathematically after experimenting on electromagnetism but he didn’t know to which reference frame this speed of light applies. While scientists were pondering on this reference frame issue, Einstein mesmerised the scientific folk with his weird maths and said that the SOL (3x108m/sec) deduced by Maxwell must be applicable to every observer irrespective of their reference frame and made the crowd to believe in the absurd law he proposed i.e. the law of constant speed of light.
Having lost the commonsense, the mesmerized scientific folk then interpreted every experiment as proof of relativity. As discussed elsewhere no experiment straight away supports any notion, rather we the humans apply our commonsense, interpret the data and decide whether the experimental data supports a notion or not. So we need commonsense and reasoning to interpret any experiment. But the mesmerized scientific folk had abandoned them in favour of weird maths. Great physicists like Stephen Hawking believe that our commonsense and logic may get affected by our earthly ‘illusions’ but not our mathematics. Scientists argue that what we see around us and how we experience the world depends upon how our brain processes and interprets the data it receives from the sense organs. So, what we see and experience i.e. our perceived reality may not be the actual reality and another creature’s brain may interpret the same in a different way depending upon its neuronal anatomy and physiology. So our ‘picture’ of the universe could just be an illusion created by our brain. Hence the physicists argue that our logic and commonsense can’t be sworn upon to explain Nature and its actual behaviour.
But then, how come mathematics which is also the result of our brain’s activity can be relied upon any better? How come only Logic gets affected by our earthly illusions but not mathematics? I believe that Logic is the basis of all our knowledge and understanding of the Nature. And logic is the basis of mathematics. If some mathematical model predicts something that is against logic, there is no reason to discard our logic and uphold the mathematical prediction. Every mathematical model, however complex it may be, is ultimately built upon bits of simple reasoning and logic. Then how can mathematics contradict logic? How can anything contradict its own basic pillars of foundation and still be valid?
Most physics students do agree that the theory of relativity is weird, but they put that down to their ignorance and inability to grasp the ‘complex’ mathematics behind the theory (like the crowd in the Emperor story who believe that it must be their ignorance that is stopping them from appreciating the Emperor’s magical costume). And to progress in their career, students have to believe in the weird theory, cope up with the weirdness in science and live up to the expectations of their professors (who themselves have also gone through the same indoctrination process as students). After years of chanting and studying the same physics, some ‘bright’ students at some point of time in their career get ‘enlightened’ and they ‘realize’ that relativity is not at all weird but in fact represents the ultimate reality or truth. Having studied and chanted the weird theory for years, now they don’t see anything weird in relativity. And having suppressed common sense during all these years of study, now it is the commonsense that appears weird to them. At this stage they get opportunities to join and interact with the top class physicists of the world (who had also gone through the same phases of ‘transformation’) and keep spreading the weird science. This is how science students ascend in their career and become physicists. And the process is no different from someone becoming a priest.
But most science students aren’t ‘bright enough’ to reach to that celebrity stage and hence settle somewhere much down in the social hierarchy of the ‘science religion’. And they continue to believe that it is their ignorance that stops them from fully understanding the weird theory and from experiencing the truth. “Because the theory has been endorsed by all the top class physicists, and accepted and taught all over the world, though the theory sounds weird and its predictions absurd, it must probably be true” an average student is right to think this way. But a logician doesn’t blindly believe in what the majority think or what some celebrity professors and scientists teach. Every scientific theory is amenable to logical deduction unless it is based upon some weird magical assumption. As I said earlier, Logic is the basis of all our knowledge including science and it can’t be defeated by weird theories masquerading as science. In this work I have argued why the theory of relativity and its predictions are absurd and illogical by all means of reasoning. I have also exposed the distorted interpretation of many experiments which the mesmerized physicists claim as proof of the weird theory.
Overthrowing someone’s theory doesn’t automatically make that someone stupid. For example Ptolemy’s geocentric model of the Universe was thrown away later by better reasoning in the wake of newer information gained as part of the mankind’s ongoing quest to understand Nature. But that shouldn’t make Ptolemy and his followers any stupid, because the model was true and very much logical up to that point of time. But that’s not the case with the theory of relativity. We don’t need any newer information or more sophisticated experiments to disprove the absurd theory which the modern physicists hail as the greatest scientific theory and whose principles they chant every day. Disproving relativity just involves exposing the relativists’ weird thinking and their stupid interpretation of the various experiments. So unlike the case with the Ptolemy’s Geocentric theory, disproving relativity also proves relativists as stupid.
The stupid thinkers claim that their weird theory has been proved beyond doubt by many experiments. Obviously no experiment straight away supports any theory but the data needs logical interpretation to arrive at correct conclusions. If some folk strongly believes that our world is fundamentally weird and hence declares that logic isn’t the best way of understanding nature, how can we expect such weird folk to draw logically valid conclusions out of any experimental data? No doubt that, physicists are the most intelligent crowd amongst the humans and I agree that we all need to respect them for advancing our knowledge and technology. But what if they get affected by a mania and that mania masquerades as science? It will be a big shame not only for them but to all the humans. It will also be a shame to our Planet Earth if some aliens realise how stupid the most intelligent race on earth thinks! So to save science from weird theories and to save ourselves from the embarrassment, our physicists must be rescued from the relativity mania.
Quantum physicists are not as stupid as relativists – while relativity starts with the weird assumption of constant SOL and is supported by weird interpretation of experimental observations (which could have been easily explained by classical science unlike what the relativity maniacs claim), quantum physics is ‘woven’ to explain some ‘really’ weird observations to which classical physics couldn’t offer logical explanation. For example the results of double slit experiment suggest that an electron travels via both the slits simultaneously. This observation and others forced the physicists to propose the weird laws of the quantum world. While I don’t call quantum physicists as stupid, I blame them for one reason- Rather than trying to find out the missing logical ‘link’ connecting the classical and quantum worlds, the ‘tired’ physicists have taken the easy path of ‘blaming’ the Nature for being weird at the quantum scale. They teach that events in the quantum world (e.g. radioactive decay) occur ‘by chance’ or at random and hence what we can expect to know is only the probability of such events. For example we can only know how many atoms in a given radioactive substance may decay in a certain period but can’t exactly predict which individual atom decays and when. Apparently even Nature doesn’t ‘know’ when each individual atom decays. The overconfident physicists claim that they know as much as the Nature knows and the reason why they are unable to accurately predict any individual event at the quantum level is because Nature itself doesn’t know. In other words, we are ignorant because the Nature is ignorant. This is where I feel the quantum physicists are wrong. We can accept that quantum world is weird and hence we are unable to accurately predict individual events in the microcosm but that weirdness and unpredictability of quantum world must be to do with our ignorance and inability.
