Can anyone explain the theory of relativity to me.
all for god
A bit of an ask for a Forum isn't it?
There are some fantastic books on the subject in most libraries though - perhaps you could start there?
Or he could go to the relativity part of the forum.
Einstein's theory is online at
Special Relativity is based on two postulates
(1) Principle of Relativity - The laws of physics are the same in all inertial frames of reference
(2) Light Postulate - The speed of light in an inertial frame of reference is independent of the source
With these posulates a number of consequences follow. I'd post them here but I made several web pages for that purpose so I'll simply point you to those.

If you have any questions then please feel to ask.
