Can someone describe/provide links to Fizeau's experiment and show that the result obtained leads to the conclusion that the moving bodies do not communicate any of their motion to ether lying inside or outside it?

I believe the logic is incomplete. As I remember, it was an assumption made by Hertz. A lot of this kind of thing can be found/referenced in: Sir Edmund Whittaker, "A History of Aether and Electricity", Harper and Brother, NY

Try

Althought the result shows that SR and ether give approximately the same result.

The difference is a small offset, which is very difficult to detect.

I thought that the forum rules prohibited self advertising (advertising of one's own theories) . Especially when the theory in cause ( "wisp" theory) is clearly wrong.
