Unfortunately anyone who dares to suggest anything resembling an aether invariably gets tarred and feathered by mainstream scientists without a second thought.  Special Relativity didn't shoot down the aether, it was simply that a classically based definition of its existence could not, at that time, be reconciled with the constancy of the velocity of light.
Funny thing though, once the aether was removed, it became necessary to invent force mediating particles which, in a sense, became the new aether.  I personally believe that a form of the aether does exist that agrees with all of the experimental results from SR, GR, and the SM.

I actually have an aether type theory of my own.  This one might not be so easy to dismiss, but you're welcome to try. ;D

Breadpudding,  we prefer any theories be put on the boards rather than linked to.  If you want to discuss your ideas then put a brief abstract up for us to read.
