We propose that GR can produce more than one answer to the way in which the orbit is affectedI challenge this assertion: The equations of General Relativity take the state of the universe at one moment in time, and predict how it will look at the next moment in time
- Unlike quantum theory, it doesn't produce many different outcomes for the same initial state (Einstein was famously opposed to some of the implications of quantum theory)
This is ignoring "impossible" scenarios like "If the Sun suddenly disappeared...".
- If you do something undefined to the universe, then of course it will have undefined impacts on the universe!
