Doctordick's post I'll just mention what the REAL problem that exists between quantum mechanics and relativity. Quantum mechanics is completely compatible with special relativity. Its called relativistic QM and is the foundation for all quantum field theories. It is the tool of the particle physicist. Non-local phenomena are not in conflict with relativity but most crackpots think non-local phenomena invalidate the postulates of SR. This is because they havn't done their homework. The real issue is what happens to the spacetime interval over distances less than the Planck length. This is why physicists are so interested in developing a model for quantum gravity. In the end this model will be fully compatible with relativistic QM and General Relativty at some appropriate limit. There will be no need to say Einstein made a mistake unless some experimental result actually invalidates a prediction made by Einstein's model. Same goes for relativistic QM. So I'll just say once again to Doctordick. Cut the sophmoric rhetoric and provide an experimental result which invalidates a prediction derived from Einstein's model. BTW-there is several interesting experiments slated for testing predictions made by GR. Gravitational waves, gravitomagnetism (frame dragging), and measuring the speed gravity propagates.
Doctordick-What does your model say wrt these phenomena predicted by GR?
