Thoroughly enjoying this light at the end of the (particle accelerator) tunnel.

The preceding chapter examined claims regarding the necessary application of Relativity to the Global Positioning System. It argued that, providing the satellites orbited at the same altitude and no adjustments were made to take Relativity into account, the largest error that could accumulate over a 24 hour period would be an unnoticeable 15cm.

This is nowhere near the enormous 11km that is frequently claimed. Take this quote from Relativity promoter Clifford Will for example:

“But at 38 microseconds per day, the relativistic offset in the rates of the satellite clocks is so large that, if left uncompensated, it would cause navigational errors that accumulate faster than 10 km per day! GPS accounts for relativity by electronically adjusting the rates of the satellite clocks, and by building mathematical corrections into the computer chips which solve for the user's location. Without the proper application of relativity, GPS would fail in its navigational functions within about 2 minutes.” [1]
Is he kidding? Nothing much is going to accumulate over a two minute period other than a miniscule error of 0.2mm. The only thing this paragraph demonstrates is that the majority of Relativity followers can’t think straight and function by blindly repeating the words of other followers.
