Main Question or Discussion Point

This site was linked at the top of the physics forums website. www.relativitychallenge.com I guess everybody has freedom of speech. Do people just get a kick out of proving Einstein wrong?

Non-professional physics fans sometimes think they can become famous
by proving Einstein wrong.

It not unlike trying to break a sports record, only an athlete usually
knows if they are cutting the mustard or not. Most of these folks
don't know how much they don't know.

BTW, I'm not saying he won't be shown to be incomplete at some point,
but probably not by such folks.

Hm, I've already discovered mathematical and physical fallacies in his argument. Some people just can't do algebra i guess.
