There is an article online at:

entitled "Did Einstein Cheat?".

I do not advocate a complete denial of the Theory of Relativity. Rather, I suggest that his theory might be a little too restrictive. From a mathematical point of view, I feel that GR is necessary but not sufficient. Keep an open mind. There is a tendency in logic to adopt an all or none position. Not all aspect of GR have been proven. There are compeditive theories and we need to do the critical tests to decide the issue. Until they are done, there are still some questions in doubt.
