quote:Is it possible to convince Mr Valev with rational arguments?I doubt it. After he had himself raised the question of whether he was sound in mind (a question that may have occurred to others who were too delicate to raise it publicly), I tried to summarize the course of a dialogue with Mr Valev, which went like this: Pentcho proposes a paradox that appears to undermine two centuries of thermodynamics. Nothing necessarily wrong with that ó received opinion has been wrong about things for a lot more than two centuries before, and will doubtless be so again. Someone offers some arguments as to why Pentcho is wrong and thermodynamics is OK after all. Pentcho either repeats his original point or raises another quite different one. In neither case does he give any indication that he has tried to understand what is said by anyone else. The respondent tries to explain what was said before. Pentcho either repeats his original point or raises another quite different one. After a few cycles of this it becomes clear that arguing with Pentcho is like arguing with creationists about evolution; itís just a waste of time. If Pentcho wants people to take his arguments seriously he needs to show some good faith by indicating that he is willing to take theirs seriously. He might also make a serious effort to fix his mail program so that it sends his return address properly. Saying he canít do it and leaving it at that is too much like his response to everything else to be very convincing.

quote:Originally posted by Pentcho ValevFATAL MISTAKE OF EINSTEINIANSEinstein's criminal cult, like any similar organization, obeys strict rules imposed by the founder. Violation of these rules would be fatal. Here is one of them:The zombie world should constantly be forced to deal with reciprocal time dilation and its immediate negation (I measure your clock to be SLOWER than mine and you measure mine to be SLOWER than yours but if you go and return you will find mine to be FASTER than yours) until any remnants of human rationality disappear. However the expression "The clock at rest runs slow by a factor 1/gamma" is forbidden: any calculations based on this phrase would expose the idiocy of relativity and destroy the cult in the end. For almost 100 years the rule has been obeyed but recently a careless hypnotist did produce the fatal phrase: see the solution to Problem 3 "Circular motion", (b), p. 19, inhttp://www.courses.fas.harvard.edu/~phys16/Textbook/ch13.pdf [Links inactive - To make links active and clickable, login or click here to register]Nothing can save Einstein's criminal cult now. Yet panic should be avoided: the zombie world is inert and relativity activists will have enough time to start another criminal business.Pentcho Valev firstname.lastname@example.org
