It's an interesting place. Go check out WM Briggs, Statistician to the Stars.

Here's an extract of the latest comments there, for easy reading.

Some may think at this point that McChuck and YOS must be just trolls, but I don’t think so. They may be deceiving me, but I really think that they sincerely believe they have achieved such a deep understanding of reality that the mere Einsteins and Bells of the world are as but children in comparison, playing with toys that they’re not sophisticated enough to understand.

Humor us, McChuck. Explain how “gravity” “obviously” “can surpass the speed of light”.

Enlighten us, YOS. Explain how the cosmological constant enters into QM, and how QM requires it to have a particular value.

make the theory very nearly match the observations. They reek of epicycles.

themselves orbit about their cluster’s current center of gravity, not where it was hundreds

of thousands of years ago.

out, only prohibits local hidden variables. Global hidden variables are perfectly acceptable,

and enable instantaneous action. Waves are examples of local actions. No wave can travel

faster than c. Normal, every day gravity is not a wave function, but a global variable effect.

Gravity waves are, of course, waves, and thus localized functions. No contradictions here,

and everything accords with observations.

Assume a quantum field. Give it an enormous positive strength. From this field, all other fields

draw their strength, instantaneously (field, not wave), dissipated in root-square fashion. This

field governs motion, and we may name it “gravitational potential energy” for convenience.

Particles exist as localized waves within this field, with their upslopes directly behind them,

and downslopes directly before.

The sine of the slope is velocity (and gravitational acceleration), as fraction of c The cosine of

the slope is the particle’s perceived time (and distance), as a fraction of 1 (no dilation).

Enormous energy with very little practical effect at cosmic distances – check. Gravity – check.

Time and space dilation – check. Red and blue shift – check. Accordance with quantum field

theory – check. Accordance with relativity – check. Conservation of energy – check.

Conservation of momentum – check. Lack of epicycles – check. Lack of contradictions – check.

Simple explanation for complex behaviors – check. Possible explanation for ‘dark energy’ –

check.
