Delete[edit]

As ListenerX suggested this essay be deleted. I'll add that, unless the writer makes more edits to the wiki, then this is pretty much the definition of a drive-by essay. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 06:06, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

A better reason for deletion is that it doesn't actually make much sense. The speed of light is anisotropic (directional) by the very definition of "speed", not by any convention or intrinsic property of light. He is taking a definition, and then proving the definition using that definition to support his argument. Voxhumana (talk) 06:38, 11 January 2012 (UTC)
Being a drive by essay is not a reason for deletion. Being something we think doesn't make sense is not a reason for deletion.--BobSpring is sprung! 07:14, 11 January 2012 (UTC)
This was put in mainspace and moved to essay space before I could propose deletion. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 07:21, 11 January 2012 (UTC)
