How Religious Scientists Play Down the Greatest of Einstein's Achievements

Front Cover
Lulu.com, Dec 13, 2008 - 85 pages
Scientists claim that they cannot understand the Einstein theory of relativity without the contribution made by Hermann Minkowski which equates space to time, but the author thinks the Minkowski theory is logically flawed and even unworthy of being mentioned in the same breath as relativity, and therefore calls it "Dream Physics". He points out that Professor Sir Arthur Eddington and Bertrand Russell described the Minkowski theory as fictitious and arbitrary. Instead, the author argues that the original Einstein theory of time was his greatest achievement, and shows how the ancient problems of the passage and continuity of (or perpetual) time can be easily resolved.
