Brian Greene Brainwashes the Scientific Community

Brian Greene informs the scientific community that, according to Einstein's special relativity, the moving clock is running slow and the stationary clock is running fast:

This is a lie (there is no time dilation), but note that this also contradicts the logic of special relativity. "Moving clock slow, stationary clock fast" is non sequitur - it does not follow from Einstein's 1905 postulates.

What follows from Einstein's 1905 postulates? Here is the valid deduction:

If two clocks are in relative motion, either clock is slow as judged from the other clock's system.

This is quite different from what Brian Greene teaches, isn't it? Needless to say, the scientific community couldn't care less about the difference. In an ideology, truth does not matter:

"This paper investigates an alternative possibility: that the critics were right and that the success of Einstein's theory in overcoming them was due to its strengths as an ideology rather than as a science. The clock paradox illustrates how relativity theory does indeed contain inconsistencies that make it scientifically problematic. These same inconsistencies, however, make the theory ideologically powerful...The gatekeepers of professional physics in the universities and research institutes are disinclined to support or employ anyone who raises problems over the elementary inconsistencies of relativity. A winnowing out process has made it very difficult for critics of Einstein to achieve or maintain professional status. Relativists are then able to use the argument of authority to discredit these critics. Were relativists to admit that Einstein may have made a series of elementary logical errors, they would be faced with the embarrassing question of why this had not been noticed earlier. Under these circumstances the marginalisation of antirelativists, unjustified on scientific grounds, is eminently justifiable on grounds of realpolitik. Supporters of relativity theory have protected both the theory and their own reputations by shutting their opponents out of professional discourse...The triumph of relativity theory represents the triumph of ideology not only in the profession of physics bur also in the philosophy of science."

Why do Brian Greene and all other high priests in the Einstein cult, Einstein included, abuse the logic of special relativity? Because the valid deduction ("either clock is slow as judged from the other clock's system") doesn't, but the non sequitur ("moving clock is slow, stationary clock is fast") does imply TIME TRAVEL INTO THE FUTURE - the miracle (idiocy) that converted Einstein into a deity:

Thibault Damour: "The paradigm of the special relativistic upheaval of the usual concept of time is the twin paradox. Let us emphasize that this striking example of time dilation proves that time travel (towards the future) is possible. As a gedanken experiment (if we neglect practicalities such as the technology needed for reaching velocities comparable to the velocity of light, the cost of the fuel and the capacity of the traveller to sustain high accelerations), it shows that a sentient being can jump, "within a minute" (of his experienced time) arbitrarily far in the future, say sixty million years ahead, and see, and be part of, what (will) happen then on Earth. This is a clear way of realizing that the future "already exists" (as we can experience it "in a minute")."
