Let us review the problem: 1) Clocks E and M in inertial frames E and M are at rest with respect to one another. Clock rates are of course equal. Let frame M with clock M now move with respect to E, with relative constant velocity v. 2) The rate of clock M in frame M does not change. Everybody has agreed on this one. 3) The rate of clock E in frame E does not change. Nothing has happened to frame E, it did not move at fall, so its rate does not change. 4) Since clocks M and E were initially of the same rate, and after M moves, the rate of neither clock changed, so the clock rates are still the SAME. 5) There is no time dilation at all, whether in M, or in E. How can an apparent or an actual time dilation occur, when the clocks were in synch, and still are in synch? 6) The above is generalizable to all bodies in relative motion. Time dilation does not occur and the speed of light must not be constant. Thank you all for your time. [ reply: http://groups.google.com/group/sci.physics.relativity/msg/e6df3b52be1e7860 ]
