The study of emission, propagation, and reflection of balls in Newtonian mechanics, employing the laws of conservation of momentum and energy when the mass of balls converges to zero, concludes that the kinematics of light is like that of massless balls. The kinematics of light explains why light speed is the constant c in each inertial frame in which the light source and reflective mirror are at rest, why the laws of physics have the same form in each inertial frame, and why any experiment in an inertial frame cannot prove the motion of that inertial frame. The theory of special relativity misapplies symmetry observed in phenomena to two inertial frames; one is considered stationary. By doing that, it duplicates a physical system consisting of bodies and electromagnetic radiations created by bodies from the stationary frame into the inertial frame. Moreover, Lorentz’s transformation offers light speed at the constant c in the moving direction of the inertial frame but is variable in any other direction. The theory of special relativity is rejected by itself because of the duplication of phenomena and variability of light speed.
