Is it possible that a relatively simplistic finding from the realm of the weightlifting sports might have overthrown part or all of the theory of relativity? Could it be that Albert Einstein needed to be spending more time in the gym and less time conducting "thought experiments"? Is much of what we have called cosmology and physics for the last hundred years built upon a foundation of sand? Given Isaac Newton's and Albert Einstein's descriptions of gravity, one should not anticipate reading about the USAF and its major contractors such as Boeing conducting experiments in superconductor technology with the stated purpose of a local reduction in gravity, or having a standard sort of government acronym GRASP (Gravity Reduction and Advanced Space Propulsion) for such a project. Likewise, given the standard descriptions of gravity, there should be no way in which to believe that a large-scale change in gravity near the Earth's surface might have taken place within the last 10,000 years; nonethless, it is easy to demonstrate that it has.
