Analyzing Special Relativity’s Time Dilation Within The Context of Lorentz Relativity

|Title||Analyzing Special Relativity’s Time Dilation Within The Context of Lorentz Relativity|
Einstein’s Special Relativity dramatically changes Lorentz Relativity by adding a false claim, namely, the Constant Velocity of Light Principle and declaring that all inertial frames are equal and all those inertial frames simulate the properties of Lorentz Relativity’s single, preferred frame. This transformed a valid physics theory, Lorentz Relativity, into an inherently flawed physics theory, Special Relativity, that “"fortuitously"” served as a useful math tool during the period when the identity of the correct preferred frame was unknown. Focusing on “time dilation”, it will be seen how GPS data makes this view clear in two dramatic ways.
