News Flash: Science on Gravity “Not Settled” – Attempts to Dispute Einstein Continue

What holds the Earth and the Moon together? Is it Gravity?That’s right, it appears that the “consensus” on the true nature of gravity is anything but settled. Einstein may be wrong. And some scientists are actively involved in showing that his theory of relativity is really just that – a theory.

It is obvious that those who would have us enforce Draconian policies and measures to counteract the “effects” of “gravity” are really nothing more than anti-capitalists conspiring to take away our rights and stunt the economy. __________________

Okay all you “Einsteins” out there continuing to spout the same tired old phrase:

There are scientists disputing the claims that global warming is real, and if so is caused in any way by man, and really not even a problem if it is… The science simply isn’t sure.

Most scientists, whatever they think about climate change, figure that Einstein (the real Einstein, not you) had it right with his special and general theories of relativity.

More or less.

Things break down, relatively speaking, when you look at the world at the quantum level of quarks and gluons. (Like there really are such things as a “quark” or a “gluon”. Have ever seen one? HA!)

It dogged Einstein until the day he died. But for the visible world, he came as close as anyone to describing its fundamental nature. And we can say that because we continue the attempt to disprove it.

Science is never 100% “sure”.

And therein lay the very essence of nature. That is to question – always. It is through this lens of critical thinking that we will make our best decisions.

To cease doing so is to submit to dogma; the stagnation of critical and creative thinking (the true survival mechanism of the human species. Whatever environmental fate awaits our future, this is our greatest danger.

But don’t take my word for it, figure it out for yourself.
