The ratio between the velocity of an electron and the speed of light is known as the Fine Structure Constant.
This is a distortion of a physical truth so stretched as to render it untrue.

So would it be possible to predict the path using this idea? even though it would be nearly if not impossible to actually map the exact orbitals over time.
Wouldnt it be possible to predict the path if we could map?

Another consideration is electrons travel a significant fraction of the speed of light and exist in a different reference than the lab. There are two different clocks, which can lead to uncertainty if you assume only one reference.
For example, the relativistic reference of electrons can be demonstrted with the nobel metal gold. The yellow color is due to a time shift in the reflected light because of the relativity of the outer electrons of gold. The electrons time shift everything yellow. wikipedia; relativistic quantum chemistry
That's complete nonsense. According to you the CERN laboratory measurement devices can't measure the results of particle experiments because the experiment includes moving particles.
