Do we think the curvature of spacetime is true?

As I said above, "true" is a word I never use. In this case it is not okay to think of curvature of spacetime is true. To be precise, this is not even a poorly phrased question. In the absense of matter the spacetime will expected not to be curved. If Einstein's equations are valid and region S of spacetime is calculated to have spacetime curvature then the value of spacetime is calculated to be non-zero then the appropriate to say that the spacetime region is curved.

Now it's my turn to ask

*you* a question. When I go out of the way to say that never is a word I use then why do you go out of your way to ask me the same question again?

If you are scared to use the word, you are not really agreeing with science.

Please show me in this thread or any other thread where I said that I was

*scared* to use? Also, please post a proof whose conclusion is that I'm

*not really agreeing with science.*There are only a few instances wherein it is okay to say that it is okay to conclude that something is true/false.

Correction: There actually

*are* instances where it is okay to say something is true or false, or right or wrong. I made a mistake in saying otherwise. I've been off my game lately. This is not a result of being right or wrong. It is a result of having SSRI disorder syndrom. It's one of the reasons I haven't been posting as much as I used to.

Let me give you an example:

Correct example of when it's okay to say that something is true; Saying that the invariance of the speed of light is true is an example of when it is not okay to say that the speed of light is being invariance is true. We cannot say this as true because it is concievable that the speed of light might one day be measured to be different that

*c*.

There are, of course, othertimes where I use the term "true" in error which I say when I simply make a mistake in saying so (being human I will of course, make an error at times).

It is also "true" to say that the number of golf balls in a bucket is three when the sum is two and I add one. It is true that the sum after adding one to make it three.

I might have made an error above because it can be quite easy to make a mistake in terminology. Be careful in making assertions like the one you ended your post with, i.e. be cautious when you claim that I am not really agreeing with science.
