Watched it. The man is a buffoon. He's unable to comprehend that a gravitational field extends beyond the matter source that gives rise to it, and he dismisses GR on the basis that it doesn't require matter to be present at every point in space where spacetime is curved, and is therefore self-contradictory. This is like asserting that Maxwell's equations are bogus because a light bulb isn't observed to be present at every point in space that appears to be illuminated. I was also amused at the way his audience laughed in self-congratulatory fashion every time he made a backhanded comment on how misguided and contradictory mainstream science is, as if they -- and only they -- have the true knowledge of how the universe works, and mainstream science is just oh-so-clumsy and stupid and look how they're trying to make sense of those tensor field equations isn't that adorable I wish I had a camera.
Come, Rubidia. Let's blow this epoch.
