**Physics, Astronomy & Cosmology / Who claimed that gravity is a curvature in spacetime?**

This is a leading question of course since I know the answer. I'm merely curious as to who believes it.

I'm good on my word so when I said I'd post the original letter by Einstein o Lincoln Barnette I meant it so here it is. Please see attachment.

In essence Einstein stated in no uncertain terms that gravity should not be thought of as a curvature of spacetime. Spacetime curvature is just the relativistic term for tidal gradients. He also stated the relativity does not geometrize physics anymore that EM or the distance between two points.
