particle within it could ever win a race with a beam of light.

Acctually Einstein said that nothing can accelerate to the speed of light . He says nothing about things already at c. If the universe expands faster
than the speed of light then so must energy travell at faster than speed of light (because mass-energy relationship) without energy their can be no
mass and vice versa, also neglecting that the zero point energy present outside the "defined" universe can be converted into mass randomly without
any apperent stimulus to induce the trasnformation of energy into matter . The presumption that holds Einsteins theory together is that light has a
constant speed in vacuume to observers in all inertial planes also Einstein does not consider gravity to be a force in it self but takes it to be as a
pure geometric effect of curved space-time, not a force of nature that propagates. But in actuality this cannot explain the effects of various cosmic
phneomena that exsist for example :
1)By explaining how the external fields between binary black holes manage to continually update without benefit of communication with the masses
hidden behind event horizons. These causality problems can be solved without any change to the mathematical formalism of General relativity, but only
to its interpretation, if gravity is taken to be a propagating force of nature in flat spacetime with the propagation speed indicated by observational
evidence and experiments: not less than 2 x 10^10 c .Such a change would not require a change in the Lorentz transformations even though it would
contradict Special relativity. But Lorentz transformations have never been distinguished seperately from Special relativity .
2) By determining the experimental evidence for non-locality in quantum physics, the dark matter issue in cosmology. The basic fact that all
gravitational interactions between bodies in all dynamical systems have to be taken as instantaneous is in itself completely unacceptable to anybody.
That would mean that "action at a distance" phenomena to be true but that is simply absurd. Moreover for a body to act at a distance instantaneously
it would mean that the body would be able to transmit its effet at infinite speeds but tht is impossible as infinite velocities would mean infinite
energy or infinte mass but all bodies which exhibit gravitational effects on another do not posses infinite mass or energy.
3)The introduction of gravitational delay can also be calculated with orbital computational software as to produce a change in the angular momentum of
the bodies and the destruction of the theory of conservation of angular momentum which is again unacceptable but this cannot warrant the fact that the
gravitational effect in one case is taken to be as infinte velocity [Newton's Universal Law] and in another [General Relativty] it iis taken to have
a velocity of c. This does not satisfy logic as both assumptions are not the same as the speed of light is NOT infinite nor can be considered so in
orbital computations. yet the speed of gravity is not infinite because While current observations do not yet provide a direct model-independent
measurement of the speed of gravity, a test within the framework of general relativity can be made by observing the binary pulsar PSR 1913+16. The
orbit of this binary system is gradually decaying, and this behavior is attributed to the loss of energy due to escaping gravitational radiation. But
in any field theory, radiation is intimately related to the finite velocity of field propagation, and the orbital changes due to gravitational
radiation can equivalently be viewed as damping caused by the finite propagation speed. Thus if propagation speed can be calculated then it proves
that speed is not infact infinite.
One of the most obvious and compelling reasons that gravity is infact much faster than light is in the case of Black holes. The question is How can
black holes have gravity when nothing can get out because escape speed is greater than the speed of light? yet, the gravitational pull from this is
never diminished but only increases with the increases in its mass density[as more mass is consumed by the black holes] also is the fact that if we
assume gravitrons to exsist then they must escape the Black holes at speeds much greater than that of light so this may be taken as a sign that
gravity is infact faster than light and yet not infinite. I refuse to accept the argument that a black hole is just a very curved portion of
space-time and there is "no need" to communicate this information to the rest of the universe, because it is "already there", this not expalin
that the virtual Bosons en masse can be detected and measured[Quantum theory of gravity may not exsist at present but its properties can easily be
understood] also this means that if a Black hole disappeared suddenly then the effect of its gravity would still exsis t but how is this possible as
their is no cause but their is effect ?
The argument on this may arise when you say that as the particles are virtual they are allowed to vary their properties beyond the accepted physical
laws so as to satisfy the properties of various phenomena such as gravitrons accelerate beyond the speed of light till the event horizon and then slow
dow to c to propagate further - this is again unacceptable as how can such a variation exsist and what effect does the event horizon provide for the
particle to change their velocities so drastically.
The other very basic questions are :
Why do total eclipses of the Sun by the Moon reach maximum eclipse about 40 seconds before the Sun and Moon's gravitational forces align? How do
binary pulsars anticipate each other's future position, velocity, and acceleration faster than the light time between them would allow? Why do
photons from the Sun travel in directions that are not parallel to the direction of Earth's gravitational acceleration toward the Sun?
Also hteir is the question of the lack of abberation of gravity on the orbits of various bodies. If gravity were a simple force that propagated
outward from the Sun at the speed of light, as radiation pressure does, its mostly radial effect would also have a small transverse component because
of the motion of the target.
