Below are a few topics on Einstein that relate to flat earthers and other science deniers.

Einstein’s field equations reduce to Newtonian gravity.

Einstein did not “debunk” or “replace” Newtonian gravity. He refined Newtonian gravity.

No one must think that Newton’s great creation can be overthrown in any real sense by this or by any other theory. His clear and wide ideas will forever retain their significance as the foundation on which our modern conceptions of physics have been built.


There are not two forms of gravity. There is one. When the velocity of the objects is not significant and when not near a large gravitational body, use the basic formula: f=GMm/r^2

When the velocity is significant or near a large gravitational mass use Einstein’s field equations.

If you want to use Einstein’s field equations for low velocity and not near a large gravitational mass, you can. The answer will be the same.
