aether ether relativity einstein
1. Einstein mistranslated from German into English
2. Einstein's wife probably coauthor of relativity and airbrushed out when could probably have clarified relativity
3. Einstein did not cite references for his ideas and so can't tie it into earlier physics dealing with relativity-related ideas.
4. Einstein kept changing his mind making his theory not properly defined
5. Galilean relativity (i.e. Galilean transformations) is nothing to do with Galileo.
6. Special relativity is a misnomer it is not a "relativity" theory.
All of this means is that his theory is ambiguous and such concepts as aether have been made ambiguous; with the connection between Newton and Einstein being mistaught to students.
