Analysis is presented of the derivation in [1] of what is popularly known as E = mc2. It is emphasized that once a relationship, describing a phenomenon in the stationary system, is known exactly and with certainty, any theory that would derive a different relationship regarding the same phenomenon in terms of the same stationary system should be rejected out of hand.
