This is something that really needs to be sorted out. FE'ers seem to have many preconceived notions about the implications of general relativity and the equivalence principle that are just untrue.

Einstein didn't deny the existence of gravity, he just said that an acceleration due to gravity feels the same as (thus, is equivalent to) any other form of acceleration in the opposite direction. This is what the equivalence principle means. It does NOT by ANY MEANS imply that gravity does not exist. Thus, gravity creates a field in which objects are accelerated in the same way that anything else accelerates.

The key idea of general relativity, called the equivalence principle, is that gravity pulling in one direction is completely equivalent to an acceleration in the opposite direction. A car accelerating forwards feels just like sideways gravity pushing you back against your seat. An elevator accelerating upwards feels just like gravity pushing you into the floor.

He also, however, had an explanation for gravity itself.

If gravity is equivalent to acceleration, and if motion affects measurements of time and space (as shown in special relativity), then it follows that gravity does so as well. In particular, the gravity of any mass, such as our sun, has the effect of warping the space and time around it. For example, the angles of a triangle no longer add up to 180 degrees, and clocks tick more slowly the closer they are to a gravitational mass like the sun.

Many of the predictions of general relativity, such as the bending of starlight by gravity and a tiny shift in the orbit of the planet Mercury, have been quantitatively confirmed by experiment. Two of the strangest predictions, impossible ever to completely confirm, are the existence of black holes and the effect of gravity on the universe as a whole (cosmology).

No one except Einstein was thinking of gravity as equivalent to acceleration, as a geometrical phenomenon, as a bending of time and space.

Please respond respectfully, with a well thought out, logical argument. Engineer, please refrain from posting your condescending one-sentence bullshit.

IF YOU'RE GOING TO SAY THIS IS WRONG, SUPPORT YOUR CONJECTURE WITH A COHERENT RATIONALE BEHIND WHY YOU THINK SO. DON'T ANSWER THIS POST BY ASKING ME A QUESTION INSTEAD OF ANWERING MINE.

After all, the name of this forum is Flat Earth Questions and Clarification, is it not?
