This kind of response constantly confuses me but, everyone is entitled to their opinion. It seems as if the status quo of scientific thought is in perpetual momentum towards its established doctrines with blinders and every claim outside of that realm takes "too much time" or, someone is angry et al. The author DID submit the article for publication and it was rejected. That does not = wrong. Your second paragraph seems entirely jaded as the submission of papers to "relevant peer-reviewd journals" would have the effect of imposing a guilty or innocent verdict from an obviously tainted jury pool. This link was on this BAUT forum website and its filled with Aether related material for purchase. I guess its okay to make $$ off of scientific nonsense while we drum it into obscurity??Originally Posted by Nereid
So to the point: No. There is no ether needed in GR nor SR. Physics deals with the components of the universe, the forces and results of said forces as they interact upon one another and said components. The end.
Do excuse the the thread irrelavent links as i have not yet mastered the art of topic specitivity. However the link realted to your above muse I thought relevant owing to what i felt was the need, to some degree, of showing that there may have been an attempt to verify the existance of an Aether before discussing it. I think its called 'Balance'?
Would all such attempts to show some degree of scientific inquiry into those things which run contrary to the ruling consensus meet with such condemnation?
I would appreciate any Aether relevant links that you, or the mainstream, think would be ... 'justified' in this regard enabling us to be about the business of debating something valid. In other words:
If there exist no peer reviewed relevant Aether Theories to the satisfaction of sceintific mainstream why posit the question that heads the thread? For without same this thread ponders something which, to science, does not exist.
