    There is no weakness, it is perfect you are wrong.

    TC was just having a bit of temper tantrum, following his decision to leave the forum.

    I am not the first one nor I will be the last one to criticize General Relativity. The Philochrony* is not in conflict with Special Relativity. The nature of gravity has not been explained yet. There are only hypotheses.

    * In Spanish: Filocronia, la dualidad devenir-tiempo, Teoria de la inexorabilidad.

    The predictions of Einstein's Relativity are fulfilled in imaginary experiments.

    - The light clock with two opposite mirrors.
    - The twins paradox.
    - The ruler that changes its length.

    I've seen the videos in youtube.

    And real ones.

    - The long-lived muons
    - the disc-shaped lead atoms
    - the time dilation observed in high altitude high-speed flights
    - the GPS software in 3 billion phones around the world
    - the time dilation observed in the Project Great's camper van experiment by a guy and his family


    Gravitational time dilation in living colour:

    One nanosecond is an insignificant measure.

    I guess you figure our understanding of natural laws ends with the naked eye and stopwatch.

    You don't really understand physics, do you?

    Not even a nano bit.

    I've measured his lack of understanding as 11/3.

    Gravitational Waves. Deflection of starlight when passing near sun. Gravitational Redshift. Using Einstein's Relativity when designing particle accelerators. Making pop corn.

    With this I think we can safely declare that your understanding of physics is insignificant enough to be considered zero...

    Also... why necro a 2 year dead thread...

    Contrary to the General Theory of Relativity (GR), we observe energy dependence of gravitational bending of the gamma-rays - it suggests that GR is the incomplete theory.

    It is obvious that without the Quantum Mechanics (QM), GR is the incomplete theory, and vice versa.
    But we still cannot formulate a fruitful quantum theory of gravity (QTG). Why?

    There are two possibilities:
    1) Unification of GR and QM within the same methods is impossible due to the internal structure of spacetime.
    2) We are too stupid to formulate QTG.

    I claim that we must decipher the internal structure of spacetime to solve the tens unsolved basic problems. The two-component spacetime is the Grail of physics.
