More than a half-century ago, the Nazis dismissed Albert Einstein's groundbreaking theories as "Jewish science"; in recent years Holocaust revisionists have taken up the anti-Einstein cause. Now, the legendary physicist is facing a new wave of attacks - this time from conservative bloggers who say that his theory of relativity and its iconic formula, E=mc2, are part of a "liberal conspiracy."
Initially, many scientists disbelieved [Einstein's] theories, but gradually, they came around. Experimenters from around the world set about trying to prove - or better yet, disprove - Einstein's theories. Now, a century later, his theories are universally accepted in the scientific community.
Schlafly's argument against Einstein appears to conflate relativity, a theory in physics about time, space and gravity, with relativism, a philosophical argument about morality and human experience having nothing to do with physics. He points to a 1989 article by liberal law professor Lawrence Tribe in the Harvard Law Review. Now widely disseminated on the Internet, Tribe's article uses relativity as a metaphor for understanding constitutional law. In the footnotes, Tribe thanks the man who was then the editor of the review: a law student named Barack Obama.
Hence, a liberal conspiracy.
The Theory of relativity assumes that time is symmetric just as space is, but the biggest early promoter of relativity, Arthur Eddington, coined the term "arrow of time" admitting how time is not symmetric but is directional. The passage of time is tied to an increase in disorder, or entropy. The Theory of relativity cannot explain this, and implicitly denies it, specifically allowing for theoretical time travel (e.g., wormholes) and different rates of passage of time based on velocity and acceleration.

I've read this too.
It's like Dark Matter, it's something physicists couldn't figure out using normal science.
That's why they are now looking for the "God" particle which will in theory plug the holes current science has in it now.
So yes, something is wrong with current science, there are forces it can't explain using Einsteins equations, they call these problems Dark Matter as they are in the dark about it, and they are trying to find something that can make his equations work.
At one time, Scientists got killed for claiming the world was round and going against a previous "great thinker".
Notice how your article calls todays scientists "revisionists". ROFL
