Crothers versus Einstein.

Stephen expanded his earlier article.

http://vixra.org/pdf/1703.0047v5.pdf*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.

*Abstract*

Einstein’sowndemonstrationoftimedilationtakenfromhisbookwithL.Infeld(1938)

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.
