: : : General relativity states that gravitational waves propogate at the speed of light.

: : How can the gravitational effect of a black hole escape if light can't?

: Maybe gravity waves eminate from just outside the event horizon? If gravity is viewed as the warping of space, then gravitational waves resulting from this warping come into existence at the edge of the ev.

I cant accept that. The ev is simply the point at which the escape volicity exceeds 186,289 miles per second. Also earth would not have gravity in this case.

I think that it is just the bending of time/space and as such it is just the bending of space itself that allows us to feel the gravitional effect.
