cbarnett97 - care to reply to the post I gave, which included a quote from Einstein on this exact problem? Why do you keep coming back to air resistance/drag as a reason that the equivalence principle is not valid? What is it about my previous arguments that you disagree with?

Yes, thanks to the tireless efforts of Euclid and a few other mathematically-inclined members, electromagnetic acceleration is fast moving into the forefront of FE research.

Nice work Euclid! Let's see what happens next...

to say it as clearly as theengineer:  Uh, no
Only 2 things are infinite the universe and human stupidity, but I am not sure about the former.

You see, Euclid, barnet clearly thinks that by imitating behaviour that he finds annoying in others, he will somehow stop them from doing it in the future.  What he doesn't realise is that everyone who's ever been pissed off with Engy has done the same thing, and lo and behold he's still the Engy we know and love/hate (as applicable).

barnet will most likely carry on doing this, since he doesn't know any better.  In the face of an entire forum of people saying he's wrong he'll resort to trying to be clever and failing miserably.  Oh well, nice try!

I doubt he will. He never showed how TheEngineer was wrong, so I don't see why that would change. If he knows it is wrong somehow, it should be easy to prove us all otherwise. The longer this goes on with him and his lack of mathematical rebuttals, makes it seem like he's just plain wrong.

Nice
Why justify an illegitimate attack with a legitimate response?
