    Is it possible that gravity is a resultant force of electromagnetism. Electromagnetism like the weak force may be asymetric. That is electromagnetic attraction is stronger the electromagnetic repulsion. When they cancel out universally a very week attraction only force is left over.
    This would explain why gravity is so weak. Also it would explain why gravity waves and gravitons have not been discovered they don't exist. The waves in relativity are electromagnetic waves. It would also give us a simple way of unifying the four forces

    No offence, but I don't think posting the same idea a second time will get you any different responses.

    I think you have a logical theory. I dont know why this is pseudoscience if you have facts. I have a theory on gravity that I was discussing with facts and was put in the trash can. You can read my trash if you want. If theorys are pseudoscience then anything to do with relativity should be here.

    My father, a projects director for high-voltage, thinks this way, and got quite irate with my GR explanation of space curving around a massive body. Proven by observations in 1919.

    Even if the GR model of gravity turns out to be incomplete, is it not a much better explanation?

    I think you misunderstand the correct usage of the word "theory". What you have is a conjecture or at best a hypothesis- the average man on the street refers to these things as theories, but that is not what is meant when we talk about GR, SR or evolution. A theory in the scientific sense is a cohesive model containing many laws which work together and which have been reproducibly demonstrated to be true via rigorous scientific testing. To date, every prediction made by GR that has been tested has been upheld.

    By contrast your ideas are rather poorly-defined and serious flaws were exposed by casual questioning. In fact, anyone with a very basic knowledge of physics (and my knowledge is very basic) would see your ideas to be falsified by what we already know. I'm not trying to be mean about this, and I do hope that you will not take offence, but your ideas are in no way comparable to GR or similar.

    Had it been posted in New Hypotheses, I'd have moved it here. And if it became apparent that you were unwilling to consider criticism, then to trash. But that was not my decision to make. So if the moderation seems inconsistent, that is merely because different people were making the judgement call.
