    Gravitational waves are a distortion of space.

    The way LIGO works is to detect that warp. Roughly speaking, LIGO uses long tubes and laser beams to detect the lengthening and shortening of the tube that comes from cataclysmic events in the cosmos. It literally detects how Earth is warped by black hole collisions, etc. There are multiples of these installations.

    I think you need to recognize that as pretty clearly settled.

    On the other hand, #Nwolfe35 identifies some of what is definitely not settled.

    Not very much science is settled. It is only settled for the time being.

    So you want us to do what? If new information is found then new conclusions will be made but until then we do nothing? Because you don't think science is ever settled?

    The fact that science is designed to always be open to further examination is not an excuse for discarding science in such an offhanded manner.

    You have my apology for my manner. I haven't discarded anything. I simply stated an opinion that this matter is not settled science.

    Inventing things I didn't say isn't useful. My opinion is that it isn't settled science. Yours is that it is. Let's leave it at that.

    Let's be sure we are all talking about the same thing.

    What do you claim is "unsettled" while I'm saying it's "settled"?
