        I agree with you, absolutist "religious statements" are very
counter-productive. On another point, would Local Times theory predict
that "gravity waves" are undetectable? I do think that it implies that
there is no such thing as a graviton, unless one is willing to think of
a black hole as such! BTW, have you ever read Edington's discussion of
Weyl's gauge theory? I think that the Local Times axioms render the
arguments against it mute!
