Don Lincoln, Fermilab: "Moving clocks tick more slowly than stationary ones." https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=18&v=svwWKi9sSAA

This is universally taught but is non sequitur - it doesn't follow from Einstein's 1905 postulates.

The following two conclusions do follow from the postulates:

Moving clocks tick more slowly than stationary ones, as judged from the stationary system.

Moving clocks tick FASTER than stationary ones, as judged from the moving system.

The two conclusions that do follow from the postulates are sterile - they involve no prediction. In contrast, the non sequitur predicts the miracle that converted Einstein into a deity (and killed physics):

Thibault Damour: "The paradigm of the special relativistic upheaval of the usual concept of time is the twin paradox. Let us emphasize that this striking example of time dilation proves that time travel (towards the future) is possible. As a gedanken experiment (if we neglect practicalities such as the technology needed for reaching velocities comparable to the velocity of light, the cost of the fuel and the capacity of the traveller to sustain high accelerations), it shows that a sentient being can jump, "within a minute" (of his experienced time) arbitrarily far in the future, say sixty million years ahead, and see, and be part of, what (will) happen then on Earth. This is a clear way of realizing that the future "already exists" (as we can experience it "in a minute")." http://www.bourbaphy.fr/damourtemps.pdf

Intense brainwashing in post-truth science:

"Ibrahima Bah, an assistant professor of physics and astronomy, said heading to the future involves moving at incredibly high speed. According to Albert Einstein's theory of special relativity, the clock ticks more slowly for someone moving fast, with the effect more dramatic as the person approaches the speed of light. Ten years in that person's reference frame can be 30 years to someone standing still." http://www.baltimoresun.com/health/bs-hs-rudolph-grinch-scrooge-explained-20171219-story.html

Brian Greene: "If you're moving relative to somebody else, time for you slows down."


Brian Cox (2:25): "Moving clocks run slowly"


John Gribbin: "Einstein's special theory of relativity tells us how the Universe looks to an observer moving at a steady speed. Because the speed of light is the same for all such observers, moving clocks run slow..." http://www.newscientist.com/article/mg13117878.000-a-special-theory-of-relativity.html

Neil deGrasse Tyson: "We have ways of moving into the future. That is to have time tick more slowly for you than others, who you return to later on. We've known that since 1905, Einstein's special theory of relativity, which gives the precise prescription for how time would slow down for you if you are set into motion." http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/back-future-30th-anniversary-neil-degrasse-tyson-talks/story?id=32191481

Jim Al-Khalili: "And, the faster you move and the longer you move at that speed, the slower your clock ticks, including your own internal biological clock, and so the slower you age - by tiny, tiny fractions of a second of course." http://www.jimal-khalili.com/blogs/2017/7/20/gravity-and-me-my-bbc4-doc-and-the-problem-with-the-app
