GR Is Limited To Cases Of Spherical Symmetry

I can see you are having difficulty with the math concept of infinity. You seem to think that GR is correct and common sense physics is wrong.

Well, let me tell you that Newton's theory of gravity is limited to cases of spherical symmetry like the earth and spherically symmetric galaxies. Since Einstein forced GR to agree with Newton in the classical limit, it also is limited to such symmetries. You can read more about this at:

So even if GR did not have singularities it would still be an approximation.

Please give me the evidence that infinities exist, as you claim.
