Id just like to start by saying I believe relativity is 100% at least in macroscopic terms. However, I'm having trouble seeing what the conflict was between electrodynamics and relativity. Electrodynamics in a nutshell states that light goes a constant c. relativity states that physical laws are the same in every inertial reference frame. These don't necessarily conflict do they? Yes, if light went c with respect to some global reference frame, they would conflict. However, what if the speed of light was just c with respect to the emitter's reference frame? Wouldn't that fit both theories? It would be like a particle that is always emitted at the same speed relative to the emitter. Is there anything I'm missing that is fundamentally wrong with that?
