lugita, thanks for the clarification. Apparently we agree that Einsteins theory is based on experience. Somewhere I got the idea that some people disagree.
JM, the point I was trying to make is that Einstein's theory is not the only theory that explains the experimental facts at hand. Lorentz's theory is also based on these same facts, but Einstein's is simpler, so it's preferred.
