Well spotted, Felltoearth. :mrgreen:

Now I wish I had written: "Apparently Albert Einstein thought of people like him (in reality it was Bertrand Russell), when he wrote this in a letter dated 2 February 1943 to Adenoid Hynkel, obsessor emeritus of warfare at the College of the City of Stalingrad ... and claims it appeared in The New York Times on the same day Einstein wrote the abovementioned letter to Hynkel.
" in post #5.

A reason called "undulatory propagation" is suggested as the possible cause for the inability of experiments with light to detect ether drift.

The word "really" is totally superfluous in the OP.

Just sayin.

Either something can be detected or it can't.

You don't say "can ghosts be imaginarily detected" do you?

"Can aether be religiously detected?"
"Can aether be ficticiously detected?"
"Can aether be certifiably detected?"

Tis a nonsense

It's an aether-or proposition. Possibly an aether-orgone.

She revelled in adventure and imagination.
