Quotes by William Craig in Time One
But on the Einsteinian interpretation [of SR] reality literally falls apart, and there is no one way the world is.
[T]hree physical realities―the cosmological fluid, the microwave background radiation, and the quantum mechanical vacuum―all serve to revitalize in a new guise the concept of the aether.
The postulation of preferred hyperplanes of simultaneity in the structure of space-time is, in fact, the only position which does not face severe difficulties.
Newton’s much misunderstood and greatly maligned distinction between absolute and relative time deserves our thoughtful consideration.
Unfortunately for Einstein’s Special Theory, however, its … assumptions are now seen to be questionable, unjustified, false, perhaps even illogical
[W]hile space measurements and time measurements when taken separately are relative, space-time measurements are absolute. The space-time position of events and the space-time interval between them are the same for all observers and never change.
Lorentz’s conception of the aether was virtually equivalent to space itself.
