Samenvatting
In 1905 Einstein introduced his Special Theory of Relativity (STR). The rumours I heard when I was about 16 years old were that only he and a few other extremely intelligent scientists would be able to understand this theory. A turning point in the history of physics, not only because of this supposed sublime theory, but even more because of the abandonment of the phenomenon ‘ether’. Until that turning point in history no physicist ever thought about the possibility that this phenomenon would not be a realistic one. But the experiment of Michelson and Morley forced them to reject the ether, especially after Einstein came with his theory in which he did so.

Studying Einstein’s paper on special relativity, it turned out that, at the crucial moment, his mathematical errors are so obvious that one cannot avoid believing that he must have made them on purpose. The arguments for this accusation are shown in: “Special Theory of Relativity Based on Fraudulent Science?”

During the development of the theory “Why a photon is not a particle” it turned out that the ‘potential energy’ is wrongly, and above all with the wrong sign, included in Bohr’s atomic model. The influence of that supposed, blatantly incorrect, property of orbiting electrons is dramatic: the atomic lowest energy state is supposed to occur when electrons orbit at the smallest distance to the nucleus! In reality the opposite is true. As a result even Bohr’s atomic model has been changed into the Heisenberg-Schrödinger’s atomic model, being full of vague phenomena.
