Yep. Saw that.

As for the other garbage you just spewed, that's why we keep testing the predictions. Fag. :)

People see what they want to see rather than the evidences. You are no different. For that matter, neither am I. :)

"Einstein's right, at least for now," said Ghez, a co-lead author of the research. "We can absolutely rule out Newton's law of gravity. Our observations are consistent with Einstein's theory of general relativity. However, his theory is definitely showing vulnerability. It cannot fully explain gravity inside a black hole, and at some point we will need to move beyond Einstein's theory to a more comprehensive theory of gravity that explains what a black hole is."
That's an odd way of saying that he was proved right again. "Fraying at the edges"?

Look, it's perfectly clear what they're saying.

Einstein made the Theory of Relativity, 100 years later it was "fraying at the edges"... a few years after that it turns out he was still right, but maybe not really.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Unless and until someone comes up with a better idea about how all this shit works...

Einstein is still correct despite AAs litigious libelous bullshit. :)

If he's ever proven "wrong" it will be the same way that Newton was "wrong" -- which is to say they're right, but only as a case in a broader context, that just happens to be the case that we're most likely to experience and observe.
