@deepthought saidThat isn't an explanation. A wave needs a medium to propagate through. If you want to deny that medium you need to explain why a wave is possible without it and you have not done that. Not even close.
Well, that's the only available explanation and if you won't accept it further discussion on the matter is somewhat futile. However, I feel the need to point out that wavelike solutions to Maxwell's equations were a major triumph for his theory, it is the theory on which radio relies.
Even Einstein changed his mind and accepted an ether in the end after years of claiming it didn't exist. Einstein's ether theory is a theoretical medium. I don't care if his ether theory is different from another ether theory. Any kind of ether theory is a medium for light to propagate through.
Again, what is waving? Is it a ripple of time itself? You need to at least have somewhere to go.
