Thread: Why does gravity and acceleration feel and act the same?

1. Because they are the same.

2. Or rather, because gravity is a deluded concept. There is only acceleration. The Earth doesn't pull us down with "gravitrons" or unseen "gravity waves"; the Earth is accelerating upwards at 32 feet per second squared.

Prove me wrong.

3. Gravity is a force. Acceleration is a change in velocity.

fact.

Wait, what?

The Earth would have to be accelerating, not just moving, in every direction at once, then, seeing as how gravity works the same all round.

Who blew it up, and why was I not informed

5. I am not saying that gravity=acceleration, but that the expansion (acceleration) of matter (e.g. the earth) results in gravity.

All energy and therefore matter expands with the universal expansion of space-time, does it not?

6. Err, all space expands between the particles.

And what data there is points to gravity being a separate force, seeing as how stars stay together within a galaxy, while galaxies drift apart as space expands.

7. What is gravity to you, then? You cannot define it as "the attraction between two pieces of matter" because that is a subjective observation and not a true definition.

Actually you did.

10. The Earth sucks?
