New book challenges Einstein's Theory of Relativity

April 17, 2009--The Relativistic Mythology by nuclear physicist Souhail Nehme argues that light is not comprised of photons as Albert Einstein famously hypothesized, but instead produced through the agitation of electrons through simple electrical repulsion. Presenting what the author claims as the "only entirely scientific non-relativistic theory," the book offers detailed arguments to support the controversial perspective.

April 17, 2009--The Relativistic Mythology by nuclear physicist Souhail Nehme argues that light is not comprised of photons as Albert Einstein famously hypothesized, but instead produced through the agitation of electrons through simple electrical repulsion. Presenting what the author claims as the "only entirely scientific non-relativistic theory," the book offers detailed arguments to support the controversial perspective. For another theory that challenges Einstein, see "Photons move faster than the speed of light."

"My doubts about the theory of relativity began when I was studying nuclear physics at the Sorbonne," Nehme explains. "These doubts developed into a theory once it became known to astronomers that outer space is not the void it was once believed to be."

By postulating that light is made of photons that move through space, Nehme writes, Einstein challenged two of light's fundamental properties: its undulating nature and the uniqueness of its speed. To explain that change, he notes, Einstein developed a complex theory, which is both difficult to grasp and revered as one of the greatest accomplishments of science. Yet according to Nehme, many of the initial criticisms made at its inception were never sufficiently answered. He contends that the popularity of the theory hides serious flaws that modern science is now prepared to consider.

"The complexity of the mathematics involved in Einstein's theory made it difficult for anyone to challenge it," Nehme says. "However, by using matter itself as the medium through which light propagates, we can revise the initial misgivings and explain the universe in simple yet provable terms."
