    No, unlike you, they understood. Big difference. One day, you might as well if you spent less time trolling and more time learning. Or maybe not.

    But did YOU understand your own 'suggestion' implications? That is the question before us now.

    I will post what I have when you admit that you cannot guess what it might be that you have missed (and so misled others' "understanding" of same).

    Give up?

    Yes, and so did the others, by contrast to you. Some people get it, some never do. Life is unfair.

    You are evading. I will post what I have as soon as you admit you can't guess what it is you may have missed in your 'suggestion' (and also in your 'understanding' of it based on your 'assumptions' which omit the obvious thing I want to point out to you once you comply). Thanks.

    Oh, Tach. Don't think I've forgotten your 'second-per-second' claim.

    I explained why your claim there was invalid.

    Have you "understood" the MAINSTREAM explanation I pointed out to you which says your 'corrections' to others were wrong there too?

    So, you don't know how clocks measure time, either. Thanks for proving it.

    A totally hollow statement devoid of fact and denying the mainstream view I used to point out your wrong assumptions there too.

    How about defending your claim against the mainstream view I explained to you there.

    You can't defend it? Is that why you make hollow statements and cast aspersions willy-nilly?

    PS: To the MODERATORS: How long is Tach to be allowed to evade and obfuscate before giving a straight answer to the questions/points put to him in good faith? Is he getting a 'special dispensation' from 'on high' here at sciforums?

    They teach you how clocks work in introductory classes for relativity, thank you for pointing out that you didn't know something as elementary. When do you plan to take this class?

    You still don't respond in good faith and answer the questions/points put to you. So your statements are worthless.

    You haven't defended your "second-per-second" claim.

    You haven't yet admitted you don't have any idea what you might have missed in your differing acceleration 'suggestion'.

    About time you faced up to your grown-up responsibilities, isn't it mate? Or are you actually a child after all? Please advise which.

    Gotta go for the day.

    When you grow up I will be happy to show you what you missed. G'night all....see ya tomorrow. Logging out....now.

    There is no need to defend a basic mainstream concept about how clocks measure time. On the other hand, you will need to correct your anti-mainstream ideas by taking the introductory class that teaches this subject. When do you plan to take the class?

    But your 'second-per-second' concept is NOT mainstream. That is your problem to explain away, and not just keep adding your 'mainstream' tag to your non-mainstream claim.

    Sadly for you, it is. That introductory class is really necessary, don't miss it.

    Let's get this straight...

    You REALLY and TRULY do NOT see the CIRCUITOUS logic in your in-frame 'second-per-second' claim????

    And you REALLY and TRULY have convinced yourself that your CIRCUITOUS LOGIC concept/claim there is 'mainstream'??????

    Amazing.

    All I can see is your lack of basic knowledge on this fundamental concept. It is taught in the "How clocks work" chapter for introductory classes. You should check your local junior college, they may allow people to audit the class.

    Is that where you 'learned' to apply your "second-per-second" CIRCUITOUS LOGIC to arrive at your "understanding"?

    Tach, log out and go for a walk. Then get some sleep and come back tomorrow with a clearer (and hopefully HONEST) mind...and then respond to the questions/points posed rather than invoking your imaginary "mainstream" misunderstandings as gospel.

    G'night.

    No, I learned at an university, I thought that you needed a simpler class, this is why I recommended auditing the introductory class at the local junior college. Hopefully they will manage to un-teach your fringe ideas as to how clocks work. After you get that straightened out, you may progress to more complex subjects.



    I thought you were the one going to bed. Did you change your mind and are you rushing to go enroll in the beginner's class I recommended? Good for you, that's the attitude!

    Did your university specialise in CIRCUITOUS LOGIC to teach you your circuitous concept "understandings"?

    Tell us which university that was, so we can all know who/what to thank for your problems here.

    Your wishful thinking is showing again, mate. Learn to do less wishing and more critical (non-circuitous logic) thinking, hey? I was merely logging out to do other things, not going to sleep. G'night is a generic sign-off when late afternoon (here) and not intending returning till the morning (here). Don't read into things in an attempt to distract from your own responsibilities to respond honestly to the questions/points posed.

    And let's get this straight before we part for the night....

    You REALLY and TRULY do NOT see the circuitous aspect in your 'second-per-second' concept/claim?

    No, my university specializes in mainstream teaching. I would recommend it for you but , based on your deeply rooted fringe ideas about how clocks work, I have to suggest just auditing an introductory class at your junior college. Try to learn the basics first, then we'll talk.

    Nope. For once Tach is correct. LOL.
