## Steven B. Bryant speaks at the 2016 CNPS conference in College Park, Maryland!

Posted on

Is relativity right or wrong? That’s the question I tackle at the 2016 John Chappell Natural Philosophy Society annual conference held in College Park, Maryland.  Readers of DISRUPTIVE and of the blog will find much of this material familiar. I’m going to start working on a new series of short (eg, 5 minutes of less) […]

## Top 4 math mistakes that make relativity wrong!

Posted on

Without a doubt, relativity is one of the most well–reviewed, widely–accepted theories in the history of modern science. Despite the level of scrutiny it has undergone since its introduction and its apparent level of experimental support, relativity is a mathematically invalid theory. As explained in DISRUPTIVE and in the Tutorial Series, Einstein makes four incurable mathematical mistakes during his derivation. […]

## Tutorial Fifteen – Demystifying and Correcting Einstein’s Time Function!

Posted on

We will complete our initial look at relativity theory by examining Einstein’s time function. Defined in §3 of his 1905 paper, this function is named τ, or Tau. In this Tutorial, we will use the Greek letter τ and its written name Tau interchangeably. As mentioned in earlier Tutorials, don’t let the use of the Greek letter deter you. […]

## Tutorial Fourteen – Length contraction, time dilation, and why relativity requires both!

Posted on

In Tutorial thirteen we showed that relativity is invalid, because the spherical wave proof failed. The proof’s failure means that Einstein did not demonstrate the compatibility of his two postulates. In fact, the failed proof shows that his two postulates – the principle of relativity and the principle of the constant velocity of light – are not […]

## Tutorial Thirteen – Einstein’s failed relativity proof!

Posted on

For over a century, Einstein’s theory of relativity theory has been one of the foundational cornerstones of modern physics. As discussed in Tutorial twelve, relativity theory’s equations often provide good answers because they are approximations for the Modern Mechanics equations. Because relativity theory is no longer the best predictor of experimental results, we must now show exactly where relativity […]

## Tutorial Twelve – Approximation: The REAL reason relativity appears to work!

Posted on

Before we begin to look at how the average intercept length is used by the three theories of motion, we have to mention the obvious and address “the elephant in the room.” One of the reasons why scientists believe Einstein’s theory is sound is because his equations often give good answers. In other words, Einstein’s […]

## Tutorial Eleven – Comparing the Theories of Motion

Posted on

Modern Mechanics is a new unified model of motion. It follows in the footsteps of two other theories: classical mechanics and relativity theory. Relativity was able to provide answers in areas where classical mechanics fell short. While relativity has reigned for a century, there is one major problem: it is incurably flawed. Modern Mechanics is as disruptive […]

## Tutorial Ten: Introduction to Theories of Motion

Posted on

Physics is an extremely exciting field. However, its elegance is often hidden behind a wall of mathematics that masks its simplicity and beauty. Fortunately, some aspects of physics, even those that seem complex, can be explained using easy to recognize ideas and concepts. You might be surprised to learn that in the first nine entries of this tutorial series, we’ve already […]

## Tutorial Nine: How things move (Part 4)

Posted on

This is our fourth and final tutorial on how things move. In tutorials six and seven, we explored how things move and change position. In Tutorial eight, we looked at how far something moves. In this tutorial, we are going to take what was introduced in the previous tutorials to explore solving a question involving distance and position. We’re […]

## Science Now! A look at the LIGO experiment

Posted on

On February 11, 2016, in front of a world wide audience, scientific history was made. Scientists from around the world announced that gravitational waves had been detected using twin LIGO detectors located in Washington and Louisiana. LIGO, which stands for the Laser Interferometer Gravitational–wave Observatory, is a collaborative experiment involving scientists from some of the leading research institutions in […]
