Do you honestly believe that modern relativity theory takes Einstein's
conclusions from his original papers and just blindly uses them? What
kind of idiots do you take physicists to be, anyway?
The modern version of SR is based on tensor calculus with little or no
connection with Einstein's original algebraic work. His GR papers still
look quite modern, but even there all of his work has been redone,
rederived, many times over.
You can pick at his 1905 paper from now 'til the cows come home, or go
waste your time on something else, it makes no difference. Whether there
are errors in the derivations in that paper or not, seriously, /nobody
(Sorry, everybody, in years past I wasted a lot of time in arguments in
the relativity news groups. Some people just don't understand the math
of SR and will never believe that it works.)
