    Why are not all objects curved?
    Who says they aren't?

    Experience says they aren't?

    I would like to know how they are defining "space" so that it can be curved. I have only ever seen matter curve.

    Maybe it is the hypothesized "Dark matter" which is being curved?

    What is interesting about this wiki page (apart from it being long winded) and how many errors need to be corrected.

    Usually we are told that time dilation is what the GPS has to be corrected for yet there are so many other factors how do they know which error they are actually correcting for?

    Does it? How accurately have you measured objects to test this hypothesis?

    You can draw a straight line and you can draw a curved line and you can see the difference and there you have your definitions.

    How do you no that a triangle is not really a circle?

    If maths says something that contradicts experience, which is likely to be right?

    What do you consider an accurate and legitimate measurement?
