    Basically you've said the same thing.

    We have no way of determining an absolute velocity as no such concept makes sense. Someone that says "Special Relativity says we have NO WAY of determining how fast we're moving" is correct, insofar as they are talking about absolute velocity, however I can quite easily tell you how fast I am moving relative to other objects.
