As I have previously pointed out, until now, no critic of Einstein has been able to find a flaw in SR's mathetical consistentcy because none has identified the basic problem. When faced with an apparent paradox, relativists merely pull out the RoS and everything seems to fall into place. It does, but only because the reasoning is circular. Everything about the theory assumes Einstein's P2 correct and is consistent with it.
It is Einstein's definition of clock synching and the RoS itself that is wrong, as I have pointed out many times.
That leaves the rest of the theory without any foundation at all...ie., it is pure bullshit from start to finish.
