First let me say thank you Jody for expressing your viewpoint on the space board, about my failings in understanding a different viewpoint.
But let me also defend myself by saying that; I really do understand the different viewpoints in question on the space board.
I do understand that the words “black hole” in astronomy means a extremely high density mass. My objection simply was that the word “hole” conjures up a mental image of a cavity of some type or another, leading me to suggest an alternative for that word. Perhaps a “black mass” would be more appropriate. Naturally, I have no say in changing such decisions so “black hole” will remain as a contradiction to mental images, that is if the mass within is the driving force for the hole.
I also understand that “mass” is the key ingredient that is present in gravitational fields.
ER’s calculations seem impeccable, but his basic premise is based on Newtonian physics, there is nothing wrong with that, the only thing is that a problem appears IF Newtonian physics is used and such basic premise on the origin of gravity is flawed.
According to Newton, gravity originates within mass.
According to Einstein, gravity originates in a curved spacetime.
Yes, I believe that I am right, but I am not asking you to follow my thought simply from blind faith. I would ask you to tell me where my thoughts are flawed in this subject matter. Alternately; simply tell me whether Newton or Einstein was right about the origin of gravity and explain why you believe that.
I hope that this communication is on a level that can be understood by the majority of readers, if not, then please tell me what part is not clear and why it seems unclear.
Just out of curiosity: Why do you assume that I do not see different viewpoints?
