Is the earth some six to ten thousand years old or is it four to five billions years old? Was the genesis of the universe completed in days or over eons of time? Is it possible to get some 15 billion years to fit within six days? The issue addressed here is generally driven by a religious or otherwise academic interpretation of the biblical text of Genesis.
TEP and published by C. Roy Keynes in He presents claims that relativity contains logical contradictions.
Then, he presents a new theory called neo-Hertzian theory that he claims has no logical contradictions. He then presents claims that experimental results contradict relativity theory. He provides colorful evaluations of scientists who have worked on relativity theory and experiments Relativity of young and old by relativity theory.
My evaluation of this book is that it is very poor as a scientific study. His emotional polemic provides a small amount of entertainment for aficionados of polemic and delusion.
However, he presents scientific and mathematical mistakes. I don't think it is a good science book. However, it is sort of campy. It is like a parody of physics than an actual theory. This is not true, ever. Because of this fundamental error, TEP repeatedly makes the following mistakes.
I will call them blind spots. I will show some specific examples in the following review. However, each chapter is basically a repeat of errors 1 to 10 applied to different physical systems.
So his fundamental error is his hypothesis that mechanical forces are always insignificant in relativity. Somewhere in every 'proof' that he provides, he sets the mechanical force equal to zero or insignificant.
However, the systems that he analyzes could only exist if the mechanical force is nonzero and significant. So Phipps created the logical contradiction, not Einstein. Kinematics by definition describe the motion of bodies without forces.
However, a force can make a body act in any arbitrary way. Therefore, physics using kinematics alone is very badly underdetermined.
Kinematics without dynamics is not even called physics. It is called geometry. Calculations using kinematics alone are ambiguous because the presence of nonzero forces can make bodies behave differently from the calculations done by kinematics alone. Kinematics without dynamics is basically a tautology.
Kinematics without forces may be self consistent, but it is highly ambiguous. The kinematics of Newton's 'Principia' is a combination Euclidean geometry and infinitesimal mathematics.
Newton says straight up that a body that is not subjected to external force moves in a straight line at a uniform velocity laws 1 and 2which is kinematics.
However, Principia introduces dynamics when it says a force can make a body move in a curve or in a nonuniform velocity law 3. Newton immediately analyzes circular motion after stating the three laws.
By Phippsian logic, any body moving in a circular path presents a logical contradiction to Principia. However, Phipps only applies this logic to Einstein's theory of relativity.
Wild as Einsteins theory gets, the Phipps theory that forces don't exist is wilder. He blames every one but himself for hypocrisy and sloppiness. He never, ever tries to support this hypothesis.The theory of relativity basically consists of two theories: special theory of relativity and general theory of relativity.
Special relativity the special theory of relativity basically states that the speed of light is constant in any frame of reference. Relativity has 14, ratings and reviews. Jonathan said: This is the copy that I wanted.
In his own words, he describes conceptually the theory of s /5.
According to Einstein’s theory of relativity, the speed of light is the highest speed possible. Using the speed of light that scientists measured, it would take a ray of light , years to traverse our galaxy (We will get back to the speed-of-light measurement issues later). Free Essay: 1. Explain the relativity of “young” and “old” There are many similarities as well as differences between the elderly and young adults.
The most. WindowView Perspective - Old or Young Earth —15 Billion Years in 6 Days. WindowView — Science Home Change Science This uses relativity described by Einstein and further shows that an old Universe of 15 billion years actually fits within the six days of creation as described in the biblical text.
We suggest entertaining Dr. Schroeder's. The assumption of a young earth, of some 6, to 10, years, comes results in an earth and universe appearing to be many billions of years old. This situation would create a reality based on an artifact—this too suffers by a fiction.
