Special Relativity and General Relativity

I wanted to only write about this stuff extensively only AFTER I understood them.

Long story short, I understand special relativity, all it means is that the speed of light is independent of the source. That's it. We're done. Thousands of papers written on it. Only one sentence needed to fully understand it. It doesn't take years of schooling.

I do not understand general relativity. Or the theory that gravity is a geometric. Only one problem: geometry is measurement. You can measure things all day, all night, it does not mean it explains anything.

So in conclusion:

Special relativity means there is no giant universal clock as everything is relative to its frame of reference (meaning the big bang is nonsense).

General relativity is measurement of gravitation and does not explain its causes. Thus it is not a theory of gravitation but a theory of measuring gravitation. Big difference.

Einstein got ahead of himself. His 1905 paper Special Relativity was awesome and incredibly important. His 1915 paper general relativity has no practical significance to reality. His stature though has lead people down the path of pseudoscience.

Its strange, discover great understanding and then all of a sudden none of your other writings get questioned. I will have to watch out for that.
