You answered that one observer sees one thing and another observer sees another thing.
That's correct. That's how it is.
If you insist 'that is how it is
', then there is nothing more to discuss with you. You already believe that you KNOW what the actual truth is.
Really, can you not understand the things that other people write? You (deliberately?) ignore all the context
of what I write. I have been quite explicit
(as has uwot) that science does not pretend to ACTUAL TRUTH. Given this context, it should be obvious that when I write "that's how it is," it means that's how it is according to the theory.
And the theory of relativity is constantly bolstered by empirical observations that validate and do not falsify the theory. Science is constantly trying to falsify
relativity; not confirm it!
Apparently the whole discussion of GPS devices went right over your head.
If you don't think relativity is true, then you need to come up with a new theory
that explains as least as much about the observed world, and more besides. Your rambling wall paper posts don't cut it.
