Episode 7 – Relativity and its Mistakes Explained

In this episode, I examine specific conceptual and mathematical mistakes that not only make relativity wrong, but help to explain what Einstein did and why. One important note: If you look for mistakes in Einstein’s work beginning with his final equations, you will not discover why relativity is wrong. With the benefit of Modern Mechanics as a foundation, we can explain what relativity is, how it works, and the specific math and conceptual mistakes Einstein makes that renders it wrong.

Many researchers believe that relativity makes sense and is the best predictor of certain experiments and observations. This point of view must now change, because I have shown that the spherical wave proof fails that Modern Mechanics outperforms relativity. So, a revised summarization is: Because relativity was the best predictor of many experiments, scientists overlooked its shortcomings and accepted it as making sense.

He holds a Master of Science in Computer Science from the Georgia Institute of Technology where he specialized in machine learning and interactive intelligence. He also holds an MBA from the University of San Diego. He is the author of DISRUPTIVE: Rewriting the rules of physics, which is a thought–provoking book that shows where relativity fails and introduces Modern Mechanics, a unified model of motion that fundamentally changes how we view modern physics. DISRUPTIVE is available at,, and other booksellers!
