Hi Brett,
Yes it is true Einstein held up his work for all to see
and if needed, to contest. That is why I mentioned him, to show
that even a person of his great caliber could, even though
not comfortable with some of the quantum issues and knowing
that the math proved it so, he accepted the bumps where he
would have liked smooth to be. He did not like it but he did
not deny it based on his dislike. That is an important point.
What was there, was there, like it or not. He did not banish
the quantum.
Next you refer to David's posting and his unified theory book.
When I posted the two links for the wave types, that was
for Drew, who was seeking info about the wave forms
and as he had been given prior links polarized on one side,
I gave him links to balance out the information for the other
viewpoint. He was seeking information in the broadband
concept and I thought he should be the one to decide
which sideband he would view; to do so he needed both.
When somebody is looking for history, you give them the whole book, not selected pages.
So, the posting of the Wave type links was for Drew and
not as a display of support for David's issue. I had not
reviewed his material though after my posting came out,
I noticed his and looked at his coils. Mostly I was not
comfortable with Tesla being ragged on and thought he
deserved better than that, though his not displaying his
math as Einstein had, is true.
Ahh, now onto the Peer Review issue. If it is done right
peer review is a good thing for science. It can also be
political, both for and against the author. With so many
people specialized in so many fields and everybody
reading papers of known authors, between the subject
and the learned writing styles, it is not hard to know
who is who. I can spot many people right off if I've
read them enough. Or the apples and oranges
exception; First of this week, one comes back. Our
PI (and First Author) has used Torr and we are told
use PA and everything MUST be SI without
exception.(Standard International). Now, we are dealing
with pressure, light and wavelength of light spectra, voltage,
current, etc. In this field, the Rayleigh is the preferred
light unit (1 Megaphoton cm2) and everybody uses
it. Remember, no exception. Oh, Rayleigh is also
how many photons of what wavelength. So we say, OK, the Rayleigh is, as we define it not
on the SI list. But Lux is, Lumen is, which one do you
want? OH, NO, we are told, we ALL use Rayleigh
and know it instantly without conversion. But it's not
on the SI. Well, that's different, use Rayleigh. So much
for no exception.We decided to display PA with Torr
right beside each usage. All investigators in that field
have been using either altitude in Kilometers or Torr,
nobody is using PA in the group, rather elevation.
Nothing is perfect.

The difference is, Einstein was not afraid to "show
his work" and provide a mechanism.  When someone jumps
in with no evidence, claiming they have discovered a
"new framework for physics", then it is likely
pseudoscientific dribble...the work of cranks.  It is
correct that claims which are not substatiated by a
large body of data, mathematics, and peer review,
should be held to a higher degree of scrutiny.
The scientific method is important, and transcends
people's feelings of jealousy or offense.  It is part
of the error correcting process which makes science
the most valuable tool humanity has ever developed for
discovering the truth about our universe.  If it
weren't for peer review, what would keep things like
ghosts, deities, acupuncture, and psychics from
worming their way into the realm of science?
Einstein's theories of special and general relativity
were complete with testable mathematical models, which
could be (in principle) falsified by experimentation.
But fortunately for the longevity of his theories,
they were confirmed by subsequent testing, and
continue to hold up in most situations today.  While
Einstein may have been uncomfortable with what he felt
was a lack of elegance in certain aspects of quantum
mechanics, he couldn't argue with the math.
