If we have a formal reference, we can use it, but personal theories will result in the thread being locked, and penalty points will be assigned.
Is Tom Bearden's theory, a personal theory? Was Einstein's theory of relativity a personal theory in 1919? Every theory starts as a personal theory in someone's head.

And if today's Einstein comes here and posts his draft theory of modified relativity, how will we debunk it, if we can't read it?

I should add that there wasn't a single reference in Einstein's original paper of the theory of relativity.

Peer-review? It wasn't reviewed by anyone at all.

Einstein's job: a patent clerk (had a PhD though, like so many people in this forum).

A lot of guys coming up with ideas and swapping lies 'cause math is hard.
I've seen that too. But this guy Tom Bearden seems extremely well-versed in vector calculus and other math. I have seen some of his equations, can't give a link to them yet.

Bearden is the crackpot of crackpots. This is pure bunk.

Einstein was published in mainstream journals.

Good enough for me: The subject is now banned.

Note to readers: When it comes to material that some claim should be published, or that would be published if not for bias, our position is that we do not buy into conspiracy theories, and that we allow the journals to do the debunking for us. If someone can't get published in an appropriate journal, there is no need to justify that here.
