Many of the so-called "quantum paradoxes? involving double-slit and similar experiments exist only because of the acceptance of Einstein'S second postulate of special relativity. One can relax the constraints imposed by this postulate by requiring only that observed speed of light is c as measured with respect to the observer. When this is done, all of the apparent paradoxes disappear, and the results of all double-slit and so-called delayed-choice experiments become trivial in their explanation. This paper addresses some of the more famous experiments, with explanations in terms of the modified second postulate.
