    I guess that's why you're so unwilling to discuss it.

    When he insists that ... OP ... is true despite evidence to the contrary, then he loses my respect.
    It's a pity you run for the hills every time the discussion heads toward evidence. You much prefer it when the subject is a person's supposed characteristics.

    It would be much more fun if some of the honest creationists came out to play.
    You're just a troll. You've no interest in a rational discussion.

    Grow up Stripe. It would really be great if you or @Clete ever did allow the discussion to head for evidence - that's exactly what Clete has been refusing to do. You certainly won't consider evidence, which is why you will ONLY offer emojis and ad homs. When was the last time you actually engaged with the topic? You couldn't clearly define what you meant by time either, nor understand that the OP, in picking Earth's day/night cycle as the basis for time, was assuming a uniform, linear, absolute, Newtonian time that was always going to be a problem when trying to do a thought experiment about relativity.

    I explained this to you before (evidence, you see) but you responded by trolling the thread. Nothing constructive at all from you. All you've got to offer are emojis and insults and dismissals. I'm the one trying to discuss the details and logic of the OP.

    Maybe I'm wrong about you. Perhaps you would want to discuss time as described in the OP and how that influences the thought experiment. Perhaps you don't. Will see.

That IS Einstein's thought process! Anyone who denies it is either lying or ignorant of the facts of history. He then worked out a mathematical system in which this works and called it Relativity.
    You seem to be describing the Doppler Effect here, not relativity. Are you sure you've got the right history here?

    When he was 16, Einstein did write about what you'd see if you rode along on a beam of light, but he was talking about the prpblems with describing the interactions of the electric and magnetic fields of the light wave, not the clock (this was long before relativity, or even before Einstein had read Maxwell's theory). If you are referring to the Stopped Clock Paradox, then that is a rather different thing, and refers to the stopping of clock and the idea of simultaneity (I 'discussed' this at some length with Stripe in 2014 in this thread, I think, but he didn't understand the issues at all.)

    With pleasure!

    Relativity is founded upon the idea that light always travels at the same speed regardless of the reference frame of observers.

    What is Einstein's proof for this called?

    You certainly won't consider evidence, which is why you will ONLY offer emojis and ad homs.


    When was the last time you actually engaged with the topic?
    Two sentences ago.

    You couldn't clearly define what you meant by time.
    Time is the distance between events.

    Nor understand that the OP, in picking Earth's day/night cycle as the basis for time, was assuming a uniform, linear, absolute, Newtonian time that was always going to be a problem when trying to do a thought experiment about relativity.
    1. I don't use that as the basis for time. Time is the distance between events.
    2. We're trying to discuss a world without relativity. Your demand that we bow to the theory eliminates the possibility of a discussion.

    And we know your only objective in being at TOL is for laughs.

    I explained this to you before (evidence, you see) but you responded by trolling the thread. Nothing constructive at all from you. All you've got to offer are emojis and insults and dismissals. I'm the one trying to discuss the details and logic of the OP.

    And maybe you'll get over yourself.

    When arguing against the theory of relativity, it is necessary to use non-relativity concepts to describe things.

    The sooner you begin to respect this concept in general terms, the sooner you can start contributing to a discussion.

    If you are referring to the Stopped Clock Paradox, then that is a rather different thing, and refers to the stopping of clock and the idea of simultaneity (I 'discussed' this at some length with Stripe in 2014 in this thread, I think, but he didn't understand the issues at all.)
    Sounds like you're referring to conversations you wish had happened.

    Chemists cannot use the full Schrödinger Equations to solve their atom behaviours, becaues they involve the interactions of more than a few particles. To derive anything useful quantum chemistry is a semi-empirical field. This means that they use the depricated, very early and semi-classical quantum mechanics of de Broglie and bolt on discrete parts of other theories (in this case, Special Relativity) as they see fit and as far as it gives results consistent with observations.

    Quantum Electrodynamics (QED) is the distant successor to early quantum mechanics (along with the other quantum field theories) and it isn't quantum mechanics with a relativity bolt-on correction, but is relativistic in its nature. It fully incorporates the earlier theories from a century ago, and is bigger and better than both. QED is the most tested and most precisely accurate theortical model that humanity has ever produced *it really doesn't stand in second place to any other theoretical construction. (Special Relativity is an incomplete theory that was developed a decade later with the more general General Relativity).

    Chemists are restricted in their use of QED due to complexity, in the same way that aerodynamicists are restricted in their use of the full Navier-Stokes fluid mechanics equations: they are fiendishly complex to handle mathematically for any other than the most simple problems.

    Cheers Nihilo!
    What is the relationship between QED and the standard model? Are they one in the same?

    QED is a component part of the Standard Model, along with the theories of the other fundamental forces and particles, excluding gravity. So the Standard Model IS quantum physics in is entirety, while QED just deals with electromagnetic interactions.

    Is quantum physics in its entirety the Standard Model, or is the Standard Model quantum physics in its entirety, plus something else? IOW, is the Standard Model equal to quantum physics in its entirety, or does the Standard Model just consist of quantum physics in its entirety, plus something else?
