The second postulate of the special theory of relativity is true, but it does not lead to the theory
This paper shows the fatal rift between the second postulate of the special theory of relativity (STR) and the velocity addition formula according to the STR. This is shown using a very simple calculation, the Doppler effect and the principle of relativity. The main conclusion of this paper is: the postulate about light is true, but does not lead to the STR.
