Oh my god... i don't know what has been going on the last 2 weeks but I have gotten into conversations where no less then 30 people have shown that they either 1) Don't want to believe Special Relativity is correct or 2) Claim they know how SR works but in actuality have 0 understanding of it. Now obviously (or maybe not), none of this was on this forum but I swear something is up with people. I'm also not going around and intentionally making these conversations... they are just popping up outa nowhere. Now, I was getting this overwhelming attitude that since its called the "Special Theory of Relativity", its just a theory and there is no evidence to support it. I then made some references as to some of the many theories that prove it... yet it is like they didn't even see me write it. Then people were saying "Well if it was a law, it wouldn't be called the Special Theory of Relativity". I then started to explain to people what happens as you approach c. Then someone comes in and goes (I am NOT making this up) "Forget everything you know about physics for a second. If you accelerate at 10m/s for more then 300,000,000 seconds, you'll exceed the speed of light. Special relativity is wrong". And of course, this is after I explained everything about it. Plus I got people saying "Just because Einstein said so doesn't make it true" as if he did not spend year after year creating SR. Then of course, I get someone who said KE = mv^2. Then someone said a photon has mass just like a proton and neutron etc etc. Then someone asked demanded to know my "credentials" before even thinknig about believing me and I pretty much told him to go look at absolutely any even introductory physics textbook. I mean what is going on here? I can understand how some people can have a hard time grasping why this happens or exactly what happens... but to say things like "forget everything you know about physics and think about this..." or "Just because Einstein said so doesn't mean its true" or "So whatever Einstein said is right?".... i just can't understand it. Is anyone else noticing people coming out of the woodwork with this kinda attitude???
