The paper is continuation of the previous publications [8] and [6]. At the eve of XX century some astronomical questions became the stumbling block for physicist. The problem of synchronization of a moving clock was discussed by H. Poincare and A Einstein, their conclusion was different. Guided by the idea of relativity of simultaneous events Einstein failed to derive Lorenz transformations from moving clocks’ synchronization by means of a light signal. His error is known in logic as petitio principii. The dependence of the SRT errors on a moving clock velocity is presented in Table. Einstein’s idea to replace mathematical time of Newton’s «Principia» by «physical time» is unacceptable in exact sciences, such as in astronomy and geodesy. His idea of time delay and retardation of old age was discussed by famous physicists [2]; time paradox became widely known due to popularization of relativistic science by Einstein and many authors.
