You still have to enlighten us about your theory of gravitation and your replacement for relativity.

I'm going to go ahead and guess that it's going to be a long wait on a ship don't come.

''I know nothing about physics therefore Einstein was wrong'' is not really a convincing argument.

Ok, I'll try to get back on topic.

"Gravitational lensing" is intrinsic to "Einsteinian relativity", but our eyes and intsruments show us that there is no such effect.

Our instruments have detected evidence for relativity.

Gravity Probe B has proved it.

http://einstein.stanford.edu/content...vity/q299.html

http://news.sciencemag.org/scienceno...y-probe-b.html

"Fifty years after it was conceived, a $760 million NASA spacecraft has confirmed Einstein's theory of gravity, or general relativity, physicists announced today. Gravity Probe B achieved measurements that agreed with theoretical predictions for two effects of general relativity, which states that gravity arises when mass bends space and time. "Einstein survives!" said Francis Everitt, a physicist at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, who reported the results at a press conference at NASA headquarters in Washington, D.C"

It's all a conspiracy I tell you: to make woo believers look bad!

Einstein Right Again! Rapidly Spinning Pulsar Follows General Relativity

Quote:
A unique and exotic laboratory about 6,800 light-years from Earth is helping Earth-based astronomers test Albert Einsteinís theory of general relativity in ways not possible until now. And the observations exactly match predictions from general relativity, say scientists in a paper to be published in the April 26 issue of the journal Science.
