Once again, try posting the data from the site. Otherwise this is worse than an exercise in futility.

@Dale E Hayes,
Nobody's trashing you personally. However, if you just want to pout, i'll be happy to waste no more time on you. Learn the ******* English language, moron.

No, Einstein's theory of relativity wasn't his best riddle. It wasn't a riddle at all. It was a solution to riddles that would have been unsolvable without it. Some of those riddles are
• why can nothing travel faster than lightspeed?
• When an observer sees a second observer move at a certain speed v, and the second observer switches on a light, and the second observer observes the light travel at lightspeed c, why does the first observer also observe the light travelling at c? Why not c+v?
• Why does Mercury not travel the sun in a closed ellipsis, like every other planet does?

• Why do heavy bodies like the sun refract the light from distant stars as much as they do?
• Why does time itself run slower in a high-gravity enviornent?

So no, Einstein's theory of relativity wasn't his greatest riddle, or even a riddle at all. But it was a pretty awesome solution.

Well, to be fair relativity has strengths and weaknesses.

STRENGTHS

1 - The speed of propagation of gravity is not infinite.
2 - The speed of light is absolute (in vacuum).
3 - The time is variable. (For us the becoming is absolute).
4 - The speed of light is the maximum value. (So ​​far registered).
5 - The energy and mass are equivalent.

WEAKNESSES

1 - All reference frames are equally valid. (if it's possible the observation and measurement).
2 - The curvature of space-time.
3 - It's possible the time travel.
4 - The gravity force doesn't exist.
5 - The unification of all forces (EM, G, SF, WF) in a single equation.

Those are not weaknesses.

No. They are "the things that Sibilia doesn't understand"

It's not my opinion. It's Special Relativity.

If you want to say that some aspect of Special Relativity is a "weakness" then you need to show how those aspects do not accurately reflect empirical evidence. So far you have not done that. All you have done is make unsupported assertions about "weaknesses".
