I hope this isn't an attempt at trolling. Looking at your profile, you do seem to be a semi troll.
"Year" is just one of the measurements that we use. There are so many ways to measure time.
So therefore your argument is invalid (I think you know what that means).
I have but it makes no sense. We think that lightspeed is a constant but just an any other theory the theory of realitivity is just that a theory. quantum theory jacks that up pretty good.
That's what I'm getting at we perceive time as we measure it on earth. But can time be proven? I don't mean check you iPhone and say a minute just passed because like you said could be an illusion.
