Re: nature of time
Hello creation, If you do not ascribe to what General Relativity explains then you will simply hand waive away one of the most important experimentally verified scientific theories to date. Which seems to imply that you are simply being dogmatic or trolling and not really interested in Science.

Approximations can be useful and many times all we have.

Check out this link if your interested.

Re: nature of time
creation writes:

The issue is whether it tells us what time is, and what time is in the far universe. Does it even apply in the far universe?


Did you not read the article ?

creation writes:

Since no distance to any star is known, no sizes are known, no mass...etc. That means whatever gravity is at work is also not clear. Etc..

This is an example of someone who does not have the faintest idea of what they are talking about.

There are many folks on this board that have been patient with you and would teach you a great deal about science. If you are going to dismiss one of the most elegant and concise theories of how spacetime and gravity are related you will be hard pressed to ever find a theory that will explain it to you.

Read this article about GPS.

This is just one example of how science can know things and use it in real world applications.

Creation reminds me of a Doobie Brothers song
But what a fool believes, he sees
No wise man has the power to reason away
What seems to be
Is always better than nothing
Than nothing at all
