Some people (mostly Tesla buffs and New Agers) still believe that the Ether exists. Should we add Ether to the Denialism section? Stilldeciding (talk) 17:09, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

Not sure. Until the article itself has concrete examples of that in action (I can try and find a few now) I'd leave it out of any particular category. At the moment, its more focused on the proto-science aspect. Scarlet A.pngtheist 17:12, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
I've got a few right here:
True Nature of Light and Electricity
Etheric Rain Engineering
The Neutral Center and the Aether Spectrum(The website for this one, KeelyNet, is ripe with other examples). Stilldeciding (talk) 17:20, 4 August 2010 (UTC)
Nah, any current acceptance is definitely in the crank category - David Gerard (talk) 18:11, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

There are plenty of physicists today that take an interest in the ether concept. See the following article by Frank Wilczek (not exactly a lightweight): There's also plenty of research into Lorentz-violating models (extensions of the standard model)... — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs
