Cause and effect? Still grasping this?

Effect: Light seems to reflect near large heavenly bodies.

Cause: Spacetime is bent around large heavenly bodies.


Once again, I point out that the force of gravity is proportional to two objects, their mass, and the distance between them. Seeing that light has no mass, there is no gravitational attraction between light and objects. Therefore, light is unaffected by gravity.

Light will bend because the spacetime is warped. Not because it is being attracted to any object through gravitation!
