Although the theory of relativity has been accepted by the scientific community for nearly a century, there are other theories proposed. This category is for sites which claim to disprove the theory of relativity, or which promote alternative theories.

http://expandingmatrix.info/
A physics treatise presenting a new model of spatial dynamics, based on a little known interpretation of Einstein's equivalence principle and the fundamental conclusion that all point-energy in the universe is expanding. Demonstrates how new data such as the accelerating universe, new WMAP data and Earth-Moon-Sun orbital data concurs with the theory.

Attempt to formulate special relativity using Aristotle space-time and interpreting the relativistic boost invariance of any phenomenon which satisfies this symmetry is interpreted as an intrinsic property of this phenomenon rather than a very property of space-time itself, the theory is shown to be compatible with causal links between space-like separated events; by Bernard Chaverondier.
