Not entirely weak, it's highly penetrating. Plus, just out of a blown aspect, what makes it weak?
I mean I have seen this before: F= g x M x m /r^2
g is the gravitational constant
M is the mass of the first body
m is the mass of the second body
r is the distance between the two centers of mass
and if you were to lift something, say a pin then theoretically it would be:
Lorentz Force: Force on an object = Electric Force + Magnetic Force
F = q x E + q x v x B
q is the charge on the object
B is the magnetic field
V is the velocity of the object and
E is the electric field.
Now if they are to compare, the EM force will trump by a lot, A lot being 2.2 X 10^39 times, but for the real number it is
2,200,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 times.
big number, huh? just makes you want to take a different path in order to get that number.
So to concur with you, yes, gravity is a weak force but also a needed force because it's what holds us. (In fact, I don't like using the word gravity,
how about ZPE field?)
