sure gravity is real, has a detectable magnitude and direction. that is one side of the coin called the equivalence principle whereby acceleration is the other side of the coin. each side of the coin has valid uses for dealing with the universe and understanding it. with respect to understanding, the classical gravity side compliments the idea of forces, while the other side disregards the idea of forces and embraces the idea that mass curves the geometry of spacetime and that mass moves with in spacetime according to the curvature of that geometry.

at least thats how i understand the situation.

regards, tim
