I am saddened to see that my pal Virgil has been brainwashed to believe that relativity theory is a cause,
and that "the GPS system would not work" if Relativity did not exist.
No doubt, with a number of unneeded constants, and fifteen or twenty Newtonian and Maxwellian hacks
the Relativity model can be manipulated to include
the Galileo Effect [Acceleration] the Doppler Effect [Velocity] the Hubble effect [Distance], and maybe the Boltzmann Effect [Temperature], etc.
My pal Virgil did raise a good point, when he called attention to the fact that as Relativity is a Tower of Babel that generates more heat than light,
it is used by self appointed Gurus on the public dole to con the government into wasting billions of the taxpayer's dollars on projects like Gravity Probe B and the search for the ****GOD PARTICLE****.
As can be seen, the Mass Media made Einstein their Poster Boy
to rationalize why the Jewish culture was vastly inferior to the cultures of Egypt, Persia, India, China, Greece, Rome, Inca, Aztec, Mayan, and why Jews have come into conflict with all of their neighbors throughout history,
and they declared Einstein to be the Man of the Century and Relativity a great intellectual accomplishment, even though it wastes time, money and minds,
and cannot compare to the Watson/Crick DNA model that is used millions of times every day to improve food production, improve health, fight crime, reconstruct history, etc.
I wonder who the Man of the Century would be, if the Mass Media was dominated by Blacks, Latinos, Asians, Indians, etc.??
I, for one, would like to see my pal Virgil use Relativity to compute a few ocean tides in a few places, as Newton did with his primitive model using hand calculation.
With modern computers and algorithms, this should be a walk in the park for my pal Virgil.
As my pal Virgil demonstrates, a wasted mind is a terrible thing.
