Here is a link to the Roodenburg stuff.
Who is Roodenburg? Is he a physicist?
Galileo was indeed silenced by the authority of the church, but his works was in fact scientifically denounced by the authority of geocentrism.
Of that I have no doubt. That tends to be the case with any new idea in science that proposes to revolutionize the way we fundamentally think about the Universe. Speaking of which, do you know of any cases where an older theory was replaced by a newer theory, one that then became accepted by the scientific world at large for nearly a century, but then later it was discovered that the older theory was in fact the correct one? I'm not aware of any such cases. If I'm wrong on that, please do correct me. It most certainly would be beyond bizarre to think that the major scientific organizations of the world with their instruments and mathematical expertise came to conclude that relativity was correct if the older, non-relativistic aether theory was the one actually supported by the measurements.
The scientific method is intrinsically flawed.
Then you might as well declare that all scientific ideas, aether included, as being compromised.
Have a look at an analysis for a hallmark scientific experiment that involved relativity, and let me know if you still think the peer review process is not compromised:
The cognitive paradox fallacy in cosmic inflation on accelerated expansion of space
Firstly, I don't see what that has to do with peer review. Secondly, there wouldn't be any time dilation for objects in an expanding space because they aren't actually moving.
