Special relativity is not obsolete, given the body of work SR experimental basis subject. There is far more experimental evidence for it, than against it. Those crackpots arguing against it are probably basing their arguments on some aspect of Samsara :)

Well Special relativity is not obsolete, in the same sense that Newtonian Mechanics is not obsolete.... but neither one of them tells me what time actually is, they only allow making measurements. I can claim that time is the number of breathes you have left, and after that time ceases to exist for you.
Devil worshipping has nothing to do with it, just as Franklin's stupid sayings have nothing to do with it.
I don't care which bible you want to quote, it has nothing to do with reality, so why do you invoke it's (or Franklin's) sayings as some sort of "standard of truth"?
Breathe slowly Illuminatus , your perceived basis for truth based on logical reasoning(and brainwashing in the school system) is deceiving you....the truth is not logical.
Are you allowed to use a computer then? Cool! Quakers rule!
I recently read that the guy (I can't remember his name) who designed the American heavy frigates that did so well in the war of 1812 was a Quaker too. I think he was expelled though, for making war ships. Anyway, he was a hell of a ship builder.
