Post Crothers versus Einstein.
Stephen expanded his earlier article.
Abstract: Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity requires systems of clock-synchronised stationary
observers and the Lorentz Transformation. Without both, the Theory of Relativity fails. A system of
clock-synchronised stationary observers is proven inconsistent with the Lorentz Transformation,
because it is Galilean. The Special Theory of Relativity insists that Galilean systems must transform
not by the Galilean Transformation, but by the non-Galilean Lorentz Transformation. The Theory of
Relativity is therefore invalid due to an intrinsic logical contradiction. ... _Postulate
Einstein’s Third Postulate --W. Engelhardt
is analyzed. His ingenious circumnavigation of an apparent discrepancy between clock
synchronisation and Lorentz transformation is discussed.

4 Conclusion
Analyzing Einstein’s own demonstration of time dilation we have found that his ‘third
postulate’ formulated in the context of his synchronization procedure cannot be satisfied
in view of the relationship between the readings of moving clocks as predicted by
the Lorentz transformation. Einstein resolved the problem by sketching only a single
clock in the moving system. Whether this was intentional or not may be open to
discussion, but it is noteworthy, that for the case where the upper system S’ is at rest
and the lower system S moves to the left – thus maintaining the same relative velocity
– he wrote: “Certainly the same result [for time dilation] could be found if the clock
moved relative to an observer at rest in the upper c.s.; in this case there would have
to be many clocks in the upper c.s. and only one in the lower.” This would not seem
to be a “simple” prescription, but rather appears to be an ingenious measure in view
of the fact that the two systems are indistinguishable in principle, as indeed Einstein
emphasized himself.
