No, Tacky. Every experiment indicates waves thereby indicating there is a medium that allows the waving. No ether is postulated in the hypothesis. Your span of attention is too short. It is double helix ropes connecting all the atoms that is conceptualised, not ether as ether is contradictory too.
You are talking through your hat again. Photons are but mathematical entities. Remember, in the theory they are only counted and do not do any travelling anyway. It's waves again that propagate. That needs a medium necessarily. That is clear since there is no handless shake coming from you lot in my post. Only your usual spewing of second hand nonsense.
That is why the ropes are conceptualised rationally explaining a lot of phenomena as a result . If you can come up with a better explanation including a better fitting medium, please do. Until that time the Gaede's ropes trump anything else.
Not suggesting any action, but this seems to be an inappropriate comment to post in the Science Forum:
Of course anybody who denies that the Bible is God's own revelation to us is going to have a problem with starting from the Flood, but since it IS God's own revelation to us it would be foolish for science NOT to start there, because in that case the Biblical revelation IS evidence, the primary evidence, and all the rest of the evidence has to conform to it.
