On Einstein not being wrong.

As a physicist I have seen this so many times and Einstein wins every time.

Gravitational waves were discovered before they even ran tests on the detection equipment, they turned on the detector and there they were :o

Also Einstein's work is based on very simple principles all other theories are based on very complicated hypotheses so are more likely to fail.

Special and General Relativity have been tested to very precise levels (10^16) even quantum mechanics is only accurate to (10^8) - Voyager passing Jupiter.

tick list

1) does is break the second law of thermodynamics, if so fail !!!!

2) does it contradict General Relativity, if so fail !!
