Therefore E=Mc2 has never been proven except on paper.
The formula (even in it's truncated form) has been demonstrated to be correct on many occasions and has not, on a single occasion, been demonstrated to be incorrect.
The speed of light? Yes, it has. In various ways.
It has NEVER actually been measured physically?
No. He didn't.
Einstein really did commit plagarism of a sorts simply by sexing up some old maths that he didn't understand?
Proving Einstein wrong would...well, it would make one the "next Einstein" and provide huge amounts of funding.
Mainstream physicists have adhered to this new cornerstone of modern physics in order to secure funding for research etc.?
It is questioned on an ongoing basis, by those qualified to do so.
To question it would be career suicide and they have mouths to feed/mortgage to pay etc. etc.?

Has anybody actually measured the speed of light? In all directions simultaneously? Surely its speed is determined by the medium(s) it is travelling through? I know the mathematicians can 'work it out' on paper (even Einstein said he didn't understand it once they got involved.)
Surely the speed of light is 'made up' in order to fit certain theories......it's never been proven. Therefore E=Mc2 has never been proven except on paper. Surely?
