Relativity's credibility can be ? and is - disposed of with one page of common sense logic. The search for an absolute system alternative then began with a retro-analysis of classic aether tests, such as Fizeau, Sagnac and Ruyong Wang, using the traditional scientific method. Interpretation of the SagnacX with absolute frame premises leads to identification of the laboratory as motionless and the EM aether as flexible and dynamic. We term this theoretical earthquake that shakes the foundations of belief in cosmic architecture and composition the Absolute Lab and Flexible Aether model. ALFA will be shown to be consistent and supported by all experiments examined to date, such as tests that extend Sagnac to linear motion and mechanics, the key results of Michelson & Morley/Gale, Newton's bucket and stellar aberration. Consequences of the ALFA paradigm will be outlined.
In a future paper, claims of MS and many NPA members that empirical tests prove the Earth's rotation, revolution and translation will be subjected to truth-testing ? with logic and the scientific method.
