The principle of relativity means that every movement in absolutely empty space is relative, or it is impossible to find out whether an observer is at rest or moving at constant speed. Einstein accepted the principle, but he claimed that moving clocks run slower than clocks that do not move. Since it is impossible to determine whether an object is moving in empty space or not, this assertion contradicts the principle of relativity. To get around this problem, it was necessary to make a new assumption: Every clock "sees" other clocks running slower when they "move" relative to it. Following this assumption, each clock must run faster and slower than any other clock at the same time. The problem is known as the twin paradox. If one clock runs slower than another clock, then it is not possible that the other clock runs slower than this clock. After Einstein was made aware of the contradiction, he kept finding new excuses and finally succeeded in establishing his theory as the most ingenious theory ever. But the theory is full of contradictions and silly suppositions, which cannot be justified by logical argumentation.
