      Contrary to popular belief - Einstein's Relativity was never accepted by the scientific community; the experts could not agree on it. Sadly this has become a taboo subject letting many people develop the delusion that it was accepted. http://www.wbabin.net/weuro/anderton73.pdf

      There was strong resistance against Einstein's physics in May 1919, the date of the famous solar eclipse, with no proper agreement among the physics community. Then despite the Nobel committee's refusal to award Einstein based on Relativity, his 1921 Nobel Prize all but stamped approval for the type of theorizing Einstein had advocated in his early years. Ironically Einstein himself later rebelled against this line of reasoning, but to no avail.
      In 1919 only a few experts specialized in Relativity. A proper debate over the merits and demerits of Einstein's physics was planned, but blocked. On the side supporting Einstein was of course - Eddington. But on the other side, opposing Einstein, was another expert in Relativity, who was nicknamed the Devil's Advocate. He provided a strong case for retaining Newtonian physics, and argued against the need for a so called Einstein Revolution. That side of the 1919 controversy needs to be heard today.
