Flat earth theory of Gravity: The Earth is constantly accelerating upwards at 9.81 m/s^2 being pushed by a universal accelerator known as dark energy. They claim Einstein's special relativity supports this. They grossly misinterpret what special relativity says about infinite acceleration. It says that an object can accelerate infinitely without reaching the speed of light, but the magnitude of its acceleration must decay exponentially…

One of the most renowned puzzles of all of physics – who's older? Who's younger? and WHY? In physics, the twin paradox is a thought experiment in special relativity involving identical twins, one of whom makes a journey into space in a high-speed rocket and returns home to find that the twin who remained on Earth has aged more.
