Nope. The God will never be crushed. Infact if you study the Gravitational Lensing, you will realize that it proves flat space, not curved spacetime. I know this statement will have mindless objection, but so be it. I must tell you how. 1. Simple Optics, will give you an idea about image formation. The path of incident light gets deviated, it is not that space or spacetime there is curved. 2. So by extending the analogy, in Newtonian Gravity, also the light gets deflected in presence of lensing mass, we should get lensed images. 3. Now the question is of accuracy, and Newtonian appears to be at disadvantage over GR on this. But this can be simply resolved by saying that for massless photons the deflection angle has afudge factor of 2. We make lot of approximation in GR, we can give this liberty to Newtonian as well, not something so sordid in Physics, right ? 4. So. prima facie Newtonian has a problem with accuracy, but GR has a bigger problem. 4.1. Can you or anyone here do optics in Curved Spacetime ? 4.2. In curved spacetime, the light does not deflect, it moves in straightline called null geodesics, so if it does not deflect how can we claim deviation or lensed images ? 4.3. If the curved spacetime is present, we will see images only never the real object, let me explain.. 4.31. Say you are a point observer on the surface of a Neutron Star, Neutron Star is expected to have a significantly curved spacetime. In front of you at your eye level (however you define it), there is a vertical object. Now do the optics here ? Can you ? Then I will respond.
