Many dissident authors make statements that "aether was wrongly abandoned" thus causing physics to lose its way. This is disingenuous given there are other viable solutions or models for light. Because of an overwhelmingly emotional, intuitive, and experimental connection to waves as waves in a medium, it is easy for us to be seduced by the theory of aether. The dissident community must stop using phrases like "Aether was Abandoned" and replace it with a more truthful and appropriate phrase.
