Has anyone here listened to the Dissident Science podcast hosted by David de Hilster? He popped up in my recent YouTube searching, and in an episode on Dark Matter a viewer named "sciencethinker" recommended a David Harriman video to him. Hilster didn't seem to know about Harriman, though both are very critical of modern theories in physics. Here is the video on Dark Matter. (The exchange with "sciencethinker" begins at 35:20.) Also, Hilster and his father are publishing a book about their Particle Model. The book's website has some info and additional links about it. Based on a few videos I've watched so far, Hilster sounds pretty reasonable, so I'm curious how many other Objectivists listen to him and what they think. Incidentally, the first video I watched from Hilster was this one about special relativity. So if you have any criticism of his brief explanation for why Einstein was wrong, I'm interested in hearing it. His main point is that SR predicts mass increase approaching the speed of light, yet particle accelerators do not detect such a phenomenon. Thus, SR is wrong.
