I may be coming late to the party, but I'm just now realizing that "OMFG, Einstein was WRONG!!!!"* would count as a theory in the minds of Sal and FtK. Furthermore, since it criticizes Einstein, that theory is also A Theory of Relativity. And how can you say, a priori, that Einstein's theory has any validity over the OMFGEWW theory. Either could be true! Teach the controversy!

Somehow, they seem to believe that if X is a theory, then for all X, "is not!" is a theory too.

*Although a better theory would be "OMFG, Einstein's paradigm was SO WRONG because of Einstein's biases!!!!". Anything with the word "paradigm" in it HAS to be a theory.
