This paper takes a look at the interpretations of the physical concepts of time in special relativity, which is usually interpreted in terms of time dilation. The usual understanding of the theory is that the postulate of the constancy of light velocity implies a change in the structure of space and time, or as it is usually termed ?space-time?. This interpretation is reassessed from a different viewpoint and it is found that with respect to the experimental evidence, the interpretations given within the context of special relativity are not logically consistent or supported by the facts of experiments or by engineering practice in the GPS system. The failure to find a clear and convincing argument which connects the postulates of special relativity with the experimental facts shows that the theory has no substantial empirical verification and should be rejected.
The purpose of this paper is to examine the problems of physical time. We will define physical time, as opposed to other kinds or types of ideas regarding time, as time in accordance with the conception of time, which regards time as as an important concept which occurs in theories and problems of physics. So physical time is how time is regarded and conceived in the practice of physics and the technological arts, such as the various types of engineering. Now according to the practice of physics and engineering, time has a specific definition and meaning, it is defined by international agreement, and has specific procedures for its measurement. This physical time has a name. It is called Universal Coordinated Time which carries the standard abbreviation UTC. This UTC time has a specific definition, is standardised, and is sanctioned by national and international law. It is a physical time because it derives from a physical definition, and is regulated, maintained, and distributed by technological practice in accordance with concepts of physical theory.
This is a draft of a history of electricity from the eary Greek period up to the end of the 18th century. it covers the origins of electricity and the early history prior to the advent of electromagnetism.
A draft paper on the issues of general relativity and the determination of geometry.
This paper presents twelve arguments that conclusively demonstrate that Einstein's theory of relativity is false. They constitute a concise refutation of that theory. Three different arguments are given in each of the following four categories of proof demonstration: mathematical, physical, experimental, and philosophical.
A draft on the nature of centrifugal force
This paper shows how traditional defenders of special relativity abuse mathematical rigor and misrepresent the hard work of relativity critics. In his paper ?Famous Errors? Dr. Adrian Sfarti attacks the work of Herbert Dingle and implies that my papers are fallacious because they are subject to the same fallacy. After seemingly demonstrating that Dingle's arguments are fallacious he says ?So, Dingle was wrong and the whole hoopla around his book is unjustified. Variant's of Dingle's argument still surface today?. This is followed by two references to my work and that of three other authors. I have no objection to Dr. Sfarti claiming that my work is erroneous if he can provide rigorous mathematical arguments to prove his case. I object to the implication he makes that my work is erroneous, when it is clear that he has not read my papers. If he had read them, he would not have advanced the fallacious arguments given in his paper, because my papers clearly demonstrate that the method he uses is fallacious. This paper will review the reasons again for readers not familiar with the papers which Dr. Sfarti misrepresents.
This is a tactical history of the Battle Of Williamsburg, May 5, 1862. This battle occured during the Peninsula Campaign of 1862.
