                                    Yeah, and everything we think we know about the universe all requires gravity to be a real and true thing but you can't detect, measure or validate it through any experiment. If all mass really did produce a force as gravity then it wouldn't fail the scientific method, gravity was imagined as a observed guess we are led to believe but it's really a known lie required to explain the lies of space and the universe.
