Moon Has Mass, Yet No Gravity.

Anyway, that is what Sammy says. So the astronauts were stuck on the moon by means of static cling.

Actually in General Relativity, there is no gravity. Mass produces space-time distortion, and it is space-time distortion that atracts us to the earth, not a field called gravity-at least that is what GR predicts. Isn't it crazy.

But else where on this forum page Sammy says that gravity comes from static cling. Einstein on the other hand says that there is no gravity-it's all geometry. It's all mass and geometry. There are no electric or magnetic fields in GR-crazy.

Going a step further, Feymann's QED-quantun electrodynamics- also says that there are no fields, just particles- photons and electrons- well anti-photons and anti-electrons as well that are coming back from the future.

So if Feymann can postulate something as crazy as that and derive the world's most accurate theory- mind you he had to use other tricks like renormalization which replaces the calculation of infinite charge in QED with the measured value- so if Feymann can get away with all that, why not Sammy. It's just that Sammy is inconsistent with both GR and QED, but he could be just as crazy!

Personally I think they are all crazy, or at the very least autistic. That claim is made on the Web somewhere. Just search for autism and Einstein using Google.
