What is not relative in this world? Is there something at all?

As far as I know everything around us is relative in nature. When we say that a car is moving, according to a person sitting in the car, the world is moving. So is there something at all that is not relative? And please don't include the speed of light which would be same. I am talking about something which is fixed that is, same from whichever angle you may look at it.

        I am 100% agree with your word I have to respect to myself what I have said. And I do. But in Public or on Internet, I have no right to say about other faith. I don't know how people response in debate about faith or religion. I scare.
        When I was writing response on your comment, first word I said sorry. In your reply i realize that I did some wrong. So I had deleted. By the way
        I am again Sorry really sorry if you feel disrespect on my behalf. I have no such wishes to disrespect to you.

        Hope You will consider my point. and Pardon me, If i did something wrong.

        Can you elaborate relativity is absolute.

          -it's easy i think an eagle-eyed to the everything is relative which mean the relativity is absolute :)
