"The theory of relativity is a mathematical system that allows no exceptions. It is heavily promoted by liberals who like its encouragement of relativism and its tendency to mislead people in how they view the world... Virtually no one who is taught and believes relativity continues to read the Bible, a book that outsells New York Times bestsellers by a hundred-fold."

-- Conservapedia founder and Eagle Forum University instructor Andy Schlafly attempting to explain why teaching our schoolchildren actual factual science would be a bad thing. He is the son of Phyllis Schlafly.

Theory of Relativity – A Brief History
The Theory of Relativity, proposed by the Jewish physicist Albert Einstein (1879-1955) in the early part of the 20th century, is one of the most significant scientific advances of our time. Although the concept of relativity was not introduced by Einstein, his major contribution was the recognition that the speed of light in a vacuum is constant and an absolute physical boundary for motion. This does not have a major impact on a person's day-to-day life since we travel at speeds much slower than light speed. For objects travelling near light speed, however, the theory of relativity states that objects will move slower and shorten in length from the point of view of an observer on Earth. Einstein also derived the famous equation, E = mc2, which reveals the equivalence of mass and energy.

I feel that Mr. Schlafly would have also supported the belief that the earth is the center of the universe. It's not.

Light travels at 186,000 miles per second regardless of whether the observer is a liberal or a conservative. It just takes some folks longer to understand this.
