Default Idiotic Fudge Factor in Einstein's General Relativity

Valid Argument I:

Premise 1: In a gravitational field the speed of falling light INCREASES - photons fall with the same acceleration as ordinary falling bodies (g = 9..8 m/s^2 near Earth's surface), as predicted by Newton's theory.

Premise 2: The formula (frequency)=(speed of light)/(wavelength) is correct.

Conclusion: Gravitational time dilation does not exist - Einstein's general relativity is nonsense.

Valid Argument II:

Premise 1: In a gravitational field the speed of falling light DECREASES - the acceleration of falling photons is NEGATIVE, -2g near Earth's surface.

Premise 2: The formula (frequency)=(speed of light)/(wavelength) is correct.

Conclusion: Gravitational time dilation does exist.

Premise 1 in Valid Argument II is an idiotic fudge factor Einstein had to introduce in his general relativity, in order to reconcile the miraculous gravitational time dilation he had fabricated in 1911 and the gravitational redshift predicted by Newton's theory:

"Contrary to intuition, the speed of light (properly defined) decreases as the black hole is approached. [...] If the photon, the 'particle' of light, is thought of as behaving like a massive object, it would indeed be accelerated to higher speeds as it falls toward a black hole. However, the photon has no mass and so behaves in a manner that is not intuitively obvious." http://www.physlink.com/Education/AskExperts/ae13.cfm

"...you will find in section 3 of that paper Einstein's derivation of the variable speed of light in a gravitational potential, eqn (3). The result is: c'=c0(1+φ/c^2) where φ is the gravitational potential relative to the point where the speed of light c0 is measured. Simply put: Light appears to travel slower in stronger gravitational fields (near bigger mass).. [...] You can find a more sophisticated derivation later by Einstein (1955) from the full theory of general relativity in the weak field approximation. [...] Namely the 1955 approximation shows a variation in km/sec twice as much as first predicted in 1911." http://www.speed-light.info/speed_of_light_variable.htm

"Thus, as φ becomes increasingly negative (i.e., as the magnitude of the potential increases), the radial "speed of light" c_r defined in terms of the Schwarzschild parameters t and r is reduced to less than the nominal value of c." https://www.mathpages.com/rr/s6-01/6-01.htm

Default Idiotic Fudge Factor in Einstein's General Relativity

Hanoch Gutfreund: "The general theory of relativity predicts that time progresses slower in a stronger gravitational field than in a weaker one." http://www.huffingtonpost.com/hanoch..._7314788..html

Actually the prediction is much more idiotic than that: General relativity predicts that gravitational time dilation, fabricated by Einstein in 1911, occurs even in a HOMOGENEOUS gravitational field:

"the homogeneous gravitational field is the gravitational field which, in every point, has the same gradient of the potential. Such a field is produced by an infinite material plane with the constant surface density of mass." http://cds.cern.ch/record/538836/files/0202058.pdf

This means that two clocks at different heights are in EXACTLY THE SAME immediate environment (experience EXACTLY THE SAME gravitational field) and yet one of them ticks faster than the other. That is, according to general relativity, the effect (gravitational time dilation) has no physical cause.

"Effect without cause" is not a problem in Einstein's schizophrenic world - Einsteinians worship even greater idiocies. Still clever Einsteinians feel uncomfortable from time to time and admit that there is no gravitational time dilation:

Banesh Hoffmann: "In an accelerated sky laboratory, and therefore also in the corresponding earth laboratory, the frequence of arrival of light pulses is lower than the ticking rate of the upper clocks even though all the clocks go at the same rate. [...] As a result the experimenter at the ceiling of the sky laboratory will see with his own eyes that the floor clock is going at a slower rate than the ceiling clock - even though, as I have stressed, both are going at the same rate. [...] The gravitational red shift does not arise from changes in the intrinsic rates of clocks. It arises from what befalls light signals as they traverse space and time in the presence of gravitation." http://www.amazon.com/Relativity-Its.../dp/0486406768
