The Rate of Passage Argument

What I called the "moving point argument" in previous posts J. J. C. Smart called the "rate of passage argument". I haven't read the paper yet, but according to Wikipedia he thinks that the passage of time is an illusion. I claim the argument does not support the conclusion, see previous posts.
