Gravity Doesn't Exist?

Well, you can believe what you want for whatever reason you may think is reasonable. The only problem you will bump into is the fact that there is an answer and you are certainly wrong.

You see, time does exist in a physical sense. Time flows differently at the basement of a house as compared to the second floor of the house. So if there is a change from those two points, then time must be something because it can change. If gravity didn't exist, then objects should fall at each other at the same rate. They don't. A football punter could kick much further on the moon than on Earth.

I also think your idea, or should I say, some person's idea you got off of the web, on light is rather bizarre and mistated, if even that. "Yes I disbelieve in gravity , it is purely just falling , a mass blocking of light will cause a smaller mass to fall or orbit a larger mass" Take a clear piece of glass, that lets the majority of light through it. Take a rock of similar size that is completely translucent. Drop the glass and the rock at a height of 200 feet. If both objects encounter the same wind resistance, they will hit the ground at the same time. Light has nothing to do with objects falling like you would say. PERFECT EXAMPLE??? Objects, such as satilites will fall into the sun. How can an object be both thrusted to or away from the source of light.

Light is not what holds the universe together. The vast majority of the universe, if you haven't noticed at night, is DARK! So if light was required to hold the universe together, then it is doing so in a manner you have not explained.
