Because you're not the one paying for the research that goes into physics.
You're not the one who wrote a textbook on the subject and sells it.
That's what textbooks and journals do. Otherwise they're no motivation to write those articles and journals.

[FEATHER-SPITTING AD-HOMINEM OUTRAGE SNIPPED]...Your understanding of physics isn't good enough to correct me...
There are two opposing views. Pete takes the view that to advance you must adhere to known physics before testing a new hypothesis. That way you have a good grounding. John's view is that some fundamental things are wrong with the current view of physics and he bucks the trend. Both approaches can either be positive or negative. The only true test is in experimental evidence. Pete has a lot of experimental evidence to back him up. However there are still some puzzles that have not been solved and this is the type of thing that John pursues.
The more productive way is really to meet in the middle.
True. But every time I try to be civil, Pete starts a fight.
That's clearly a lie as anyone can see merely by looking at any post of mine. You come in and either post something which is totally wrong and insult me when I correct you or when I post something and you claim I'm wrong and claim that my counter argument is wrong and then insult me when I prove you wrong.
All: please note that some of PmbPhy's posts have been deleted. I presume he has deleted them so that you can't see how unpleasant he is.
When you get an unpleasant response from someone it often means they're not in the best state of health, perhaps having to fight through a lot of pain in order to get anything done, so it's best to make allowances and try to think the best of them.
More people than you think have greatness buried within but the fear of ridicule will scare them away. It is best to consider one's self ridiculous, that way you save them all the trouble.
