The apple of Newton's eye and the focus of Einstein's work, gravity is weaker than you probably think and weirder than you probably imagined.

Anyone ever actually sit down and think about all this, and what science would have you believe relative to it all?

Whilst an interesting article it still determines that Gravity is a force, rather than simply an effect (which it MIGHT be)

"19. To understand gravity better, scientists are looking for gravitational waves, ripples in space-time that result from things like black holes colliding and stars exploding, according to Amber Stuver, a physicist at Louisiana’s Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO).

20. Once LIGO researchers successfully detect gravitational waves, they’ll be able to use them to see the cosmos as never before. “Every time we’ve looked at the universe in a new way,” Stuver says, “it revolutionized our understanding of the universe.” Talk about heavy."

The real problem with the above from the article, is that it is already pre-disposed to finding Gravity Waves of which absolutely no hint has yet appeared (not saying that it wont appear at some time), which leads to a  Positive Confirmation mindset that may well be incorrect.

OMG :w00t: :w00t:

Αν ανάμεσα σ’ όλον τον κόσμο,
νιώθεις πως δεν υπάρχουνε λύσεις,
τότε μόνο δυο μάτια μπορούνε,
να σε κάνουν να θέλεις να ζήσεις.

Hah, that is one of the problems, definitely.

Personally, I object more to statements like this:

5. Someone who weighs 150 pounds on Earth would — if it were possible to stand on Jupiter — weigh a whopping 354 pounds on the enormous gas giant. Larger masses have greater gravity.

The statement ``greater gravity'' is pretty meaningless.
