Well, its not my job to try and convince anyone but this stipulation of special relativity is well documented and explained with some google research, and there is a nice explanation on Howstuffworks.com
Maybe, but all I can do is go by evidence, and at the moment I just don't see how the "teleporting" as its happening now will evolve to Star Trek teleporting.
The type of teleporting done in "Star Trek" would actually kill you since it uses different atoms at the destination and not your own original ones. Just like a fax machine doesn't send it's ink or lasering and paper to the other fax machine, the other just uses it's own. So the person after the teleportation process at point B would really be a new person who just looks, acts, and has the memories of the point A person, who may or may not be original also depending on whether or not they teleported before or not. In other words if anyone offers to teleport you the "Star Trek" way say "NO, THANK YOU, I'll fly (air or space), (and if on the same planet) drive, take a bus or train, or walk!!"
The only safe way to teleport is like the way Hiro from "Heroes" does it, and the "Wrinkle In Time" way by bending space and bringing two points together so you won't have to take your atoms apart. I wonder if String-Theory has a safe way to do it? And what about Quantum Teleportation? If anyone here nows about the varies ways to teleport and which are the safer ways and which are the more dangerous ways please tell!!!
