In my Opinion>.... Anyone with alternative theories they wish to discuss should follow a few simple procedures:  Don't present the theory as fact...don't present it as something that is "faite accompli" It most certainly isn't:  Gather all the experimental and Observational evidence to support your claims...  Whatever you have at the very least, must be able to explain and predict better then the incumbent model:  Your theory almost certainly is going to be challenged, and will need to run the gauntlet:  You will be told you are incorrect and your theory is wrong in most cases:  Throwing a tantrum will not win you any support:  You’re going to be asked tough questions. When someone asks you a question answer it.  When someone demonstrates a point you made is wrong, acknowledge that it is wrong and accept it:  Peer review may not be perfect, but it is absolutely necessary. The participants of any forum one sets out his alternative theory on, are your peers. Accept that:  If you think you have accomplished a theory over riding Evolution, SR, GR the BB QM or Newton, you most certainly have not: 100 years and more of past giants, and the 100's of books and papers since, means that you will not invalidate such overwhelmingly supported ideas in a few words or posts: Accept that from the word go:  In all likelyhood you are not Einstein, Newton, Hawking Bohr or Feynman: Don't pretend to be.  And finally always be prepared to modify your ideas/model/theories: From an interested lay person. Please feel free to add, subtract, correct any errors, make alterations or corrections.
