The approach taken in this paper is to show that all of Smolin's criteria for valid new theories contain flaws, and these criteria have not been proven to be true experimentally as he asserts. Errors have crept in since Einstein's development of Special Relativity and General Relativity that have set theoretical physics back a century. Maxwell's equations should be stated in terms of potentials rather than fields, which doom the Standard Model. Indeed, we need to go back and find out where we went wrong, and develop a new particle model and a new theory of movement in the universe.
