Relativity of Simultaneity

Thanks guys; it hasn't clicked for me yet. It might be easier for me to outline the question by contrasting Einsteinian relativity with Lorentzian relativity; under Lorentzian relativity there is absolute simultaneity, while under Einsteinian relativity there is RoS. If both theories are indistinguishable in terms of experimental data, why is it that there is RoS in one and absolute simultaneity in the other, if both theories include clocks which tick at different rates?
Only because LET believers believe it is so. Or maybe I should say "believed" it was so because I don't think there are any LET believers left in the world.
