: Anybody want to hear me out?

: I formulated a theory about the structure of the continuum which is a bit different than any other present theory. I though it to be correct, so I did a few math equations that "should" calculate the rate which gravity diminishes with distance, if my theory was correct.I created this equation before I knew pretty much anything about physics, I didn't know how physics calculated gravity. I then brought the numbers to my physics teacher, and asked him if he could tell me if the numbers were correct. The numbers matched, so I decided to write out my ideas, and give my physics teacher a copy of the paper.

: He told me that unless I rigorously calculate all the math invloved in the theory that, it would not even be considered in the physics world.

: This seemed to me to be somewhat of a discepancy. It seems that physics doesn't want any assumptions in their laws.

: Then, I ask you this: Do two objects, separated by distance exist in the same moment (simultaneously)? If your answer was yes, then I ask you: Is this a fact, or an assumption?

: Here is my challenge for any physics buff looking for one: Post any proof whatsoever, that two objects separated by distance exist simultaneously.

Maybe you could reword that, because the way it is now phrased the answer is trivial. (Answer: Not always). For example

Let one object be created at x = a and exist there as that object from t = b to t = c at which time it is destroyed. Then let another object be created after time c at another location x = d and exist there from t = e to t = f. There are spatially separated by a distance |d - a|, but never exist simultaneously.

For those into relativity make sure the destruction of the first object and the creation of the second object are timelike events.
