Einstein's fame can, to some extent, be ascribed to the fact that he originated a theory which, though contrary to common sense, was in remarkable agreement the experimental data.  Ron Hatch claims there is increasingly precise data which contradicts the theory.  But he does not stop there.  He offers an alternative - an ether guage theory, which offers an unparalleled, common-sense explanation of the experimental data.  The new theory is distinguished by:

  • a return to time simultaneity, even though clocks (mechanical and biological) can run at different rates
  • the replacement of the Lorentz transformations with gauge transformations (scaled Galilean transformations)
  • a unification of the electromagnetic and gravitational forces
  • a clear explanation of the source of inertia
  • a clear and consistent explanation of the physics underlying the equivalence principle

In addition to the above, a comprehensive review of the experimental record shows that the new ether guage theory agrees with experiment better than the special theory.  This releases everyone from the necessity of accepting a nonsensical theory which denies the common, ordinary sense of elapsed time.   Rather than curved space, the ether guage theory postulates an elastic ether.  This results in relatively minor modifications to the general theory mathematics - but with significant interpretational differences. - From the endpiece
