    It's crap. written by someone who doesn't understand math, is arrogant enough to think that if he doesn't understand something it is wrong, and is under the misapprehension that SRT is hard to verify. He is entirely ignorant of the hundreds of accelerators built over the last 80 years, which were designed using Einstein's formulas and wouldn't work if designed using this guy's formulas.

    It's strange but it was an advertised link for the term "relative" on answers.com What is he selling?

    He's trying to sell publicity just like this, and he's succeeding because you took his bait.

    He says on his website that 3 of his Papers were acceted by Gallilean Electrodynamics. I'm only a student and have no idea if that is a credible, peer-reviewed journal or even if its a real journal at all. By what all of you are saying I'm assuming it isn't. Anyone care to comment on it?

    Hint: with a name like "Galilean Electrodynamics", it should be clear that they are looking for 300 year old solutions to problems that were solved 100 years ago.

    OK I searched about seven names From the physicists and editors on that site. BOTH editors returned NO results for any works on Google Scholars. One Physicist mentioned there had several publications, and two others that I searched had one each. Doesn't seem very reliable to me, but then again I'm no physicist......at least not yet.
