Gravity: the bad news, the good news, the NOT news

Although some anti-scientists still deny the existence of gravity, The New York Times has done a study that shows what we all already knew: gravity exists and is here to stay. (QUICK ASIDE: The bumbo who narrates the video begins by saying what we know of the universe has always come from what we could see. This is OBVIOUSLY false – not true – since we also can HEAR and TASTE the universe, not to mention FEEL it, mainly with our hands.)

Now some people have pegged me as a scientist who denies the existence of gravity. This is because I devastatingly destroyed the main explanation of gravity given in the primary schools: the “bowling ball illustration.” (Destruction here.) I have also challenged, quite successfully, MISUNDERSTANDINGS of gravity that lead people to patented absurds like what I’ve called “The Myth of 0mph.”

But please let us have not this chatter about how I have been refuted: instead the studies do what I always wanted: they show a REAL proof of gravity instead of what I have hated: dumb proofs that fail like the bowling ball illustration.

  1. Hello Mr. Woodacre. Thank you for your kind remark. One of the activities I try to do here at SMD is keep my discussions funny and lighthearted – it helps the medicine go down for skeptical readers, I think (I hope!)!

    Best to you and your family,
