Lorentz and Larmor's aether theories are alternatives. Also, if there is no known absolute speed of light, is the measured speed of light the absolute speed of light? Mass, length and time transformations can theoretically make the speed of light appear constant.

Does time dilation show time itself can be altered or just measured time as measured with real clocks can vary? Only real clocks can be observed and not absolute time based on modern physics.

It's the internet, of course you can.

I never said special relativity was completely wrong. It just needs modifications such as a prefered electromagnetic frame of reference, etc.

Yes, but how does your sound system sound to you?

More importantly, what about the glowing red chicks? How does that fit in?

I was certain I saw somewhere that Einstein theorized the speed of light is relative to gravity so I searched around. This article sais the claim was based on an interpretation of his general relativity theory and could possibly be true.

Is The Speed of Light Constant?

How does that fit with Maxwell's equations? They are Lorentz-invariant, and are a good argument for special relativity.

BTW do you have a timer which expires every few months, reminding you to post yet another anti-physics comment? Are you trying to wear us down, so that eventually we either ignore you or you get banned, so then you can use this as 'evidence' that you are right because we refuse to debate with you? There are sites devoted to this type of discussion.

We don't need logic chopping, real physics is having way too much fun as it is.

Now you're asking for Heaviside mumbo-jumbo and a set of links to crank sites, followed by wails that you didn't bother to read them and comprehend the profound correctness of their analysis. Thanks a freakin' lot.
