## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi folks - I'm struggling here! Please help ;-)

Surely the concept of relativity of simultaneity is an illusion based on the finite speed of light?

If an observer witnesses an event (Event A) and is at distance of zero (d=0) from Event A, then that is the TRUE time the event occurred. It is irrelevant if other observers of sufficient distance record the time the event occured as different. That is only because light has a finite speed limit. Therefore, there is an absolute time when events occur ....?

Or am i wrong?
