    Sam, will you please tell me how long it takes me to travel 5.88 trillion miles?

    Also, I have another, simple question for you. Is a meter a unit measurement of time or distance?

    Lol, you guys will go to great lengths to ignore the fact that Einstein said light speed slows down in a gravity field.

    Hey! Do you know the title of Einstein’s 1918 paper and what classical book it referred to?

    No. Sorry. Ask Milli. He knows everything you want to know. I’m presently conducting more research. I‘m in Berlin in 1918. Say, you wouldn’t happen to know the title of Einstein’s 1918 paper and what classical book it referred to?

    I don't doubt he knows the answers, I doubt you do. I am not asking Milli, I am asking you. If you would try to answer my two simple questions, you might learn something, but you wouldn't want to do that, would you?

    Jeepers! Every other person has a copy of Nietzsche’s latest book! And just look at all the German translations of “Der Ursprung der Sorte” by Darwin in all the book stores! And look at all the Galton books! Dieses ist nicht gut! I don’t think I like this place. I think I’m going back to the 21st Century!

    See the two long plane-wave lines? Notice that there is an angle between the lines? Notice that the distance the c1dt part of the beam travels is longer than the distance the c2dt part of the beam travels during the same time period?

    Do you not understand this or are you purposely trying not to understand this?
    Sam5, we had this exchange on page 53:

    They are not speeds, they are distances. It's the speed of light (c) multiplied by the change in time. Which gives a distance.
    Thirty pages ago, I first explained that cdt and c1dt were distances. And several times since. You are now just understanding this. So using your own quote:

    As far as this quote:

    If you think I didn't understand cdt, I challenge you to show any post of mine that shows I thought cdt was anything besides a distance. Can you do it? No, I didn't think you could.

    considering this quote:

    considering that other posters, besides myself, have shown where you have taken quotes out of context, either misunderstood, misapplied or dishonestly distorted usage of precisely given definitions and common physics or astronomy terms, and used, for support, references that even the author has claimed don't work. I'll let others decide who the above quote should more properly apply to.

    Viel Spass, unser Freund. Leider kann ich nicht sagen, dass wir dich viel verpassen...oder auch vergessen.

    If I asked you, “What amount of time are we talking about in a ‘light year’?” Would you just go "doh"?
    I don't believe this is necessary. You can believe someone is wrong without trying to insult their intelligence. I highly recommend you stick to civilized debate instead of resorting to these kinds of tactics.

    Is that a new way you have of avoiding answering Sam? It is ok to admit you were wrong about light years. And in the Spirit of give and take, I do not know the title of the book you are refering to.

    After 84 pages, not one single thing has been concluded. Well, that's not true. I have concluded I need to bring out a general call of "don't be rude" here, with a special finger pointed at Sam5. I have not read this whole thread, so I don't know where else others may have been impolite, but I did see where Sam5 was.

    Locked. Take it elsewhere.
