In 1962 Professor H. Dingle published an argument that the theory of special relativity is invalid. In what follows he restates his case, which is then answered by Professor W. H. McCrea. 
Is the Special Theory of Relativity Wrong ?: The Special Theory of Relativity
Since the publication of Professor Dingle's article (Nature, 216, 119; 1967), arguing that the special theory of relativity is incorrect, several comments on this issue have been received, and we
Is the Special Theory Right or Wrong?: Experimental Verifications of the Theory of Relativity
In Nature for October 14, 1967, Professor H. Dingle argued that the special theory of relativity is incorrect, and Professor W. H. McCrea put an opposing view. Some correspondence on the same subject

On the Proper Understanding of the “Twin Paradox”
In this paper, we will show that with proper understanding of the concept of the invariance of the “intervals” of events in Minkowski’s spacetime, the problem of why (not the usual how) the “clock
Comments on the paper Time measurement using a realizable atomic clock
A recent statement of L.M. Stephenson (ibid., vol. 3, 368, 1970) in connection with complete clocks is disputed and the traditional time dilatation of the special theory of relativity is upheld.
Psychology and Modern Science
Modern science, since Galileo, has been founded upon the conviction that a scientific theory must be both empirical and logical. Modern cognitive psychologists, however, tend to oscillate between
Relativity without Lorentz Invariance Solves the Twin Paradox
The Twin Paradox is one of the most fascinating paradoxes in physics. In Special Relativity, the paradox arises due to the nonexistence of a preferred frame of reference, resulting in both twins
