Actually, that would just make people think it's circular. Even then, a square object casting a shadow on a spherical object produces a shadow that is almost circular as well. We know it's round because of a primitive version of the scientific method utilized.
Because the theory is being refined doesn't make gravity go away either, does it?
Obfuscation will get you nowhere. Erik Verlinde, professor of Theoretical Physics says gravity is an illusion:

So, you have another mentally disturbed "professor," good for you. Doesn't change the fact that what goes up, must collide with another object.

The earth is round because we can see the reflection of its shape on the moon during a lunar eclispe. This is as true today as it was when Ferdinand Magellan first took notice. And gravity? Well - its currently undergoing scientific reconstruction as do all of science's "theories" eventually. Why should anyone accept science's theories as truthworthy when they change all the time?

How strange. You label everybody, including scientists who disagree with you as mentally disturbed. Has it ever occurred to you that you might be the one who is unhinged?

Then why don't you jump off the top of a very tall building, thus proving that Professor Verlinde is correct?

I agree completely. God never has, does not now, and never will, exist.

Much like scientific assumptions, eh? They are real not because they are, but because science says they are.
No they are real because observational evidence and multiple experiments prove it.

Nope, never occurred to me in recent years as I have nothing to feel insecure about.

99% of the population is mentally disturbed in some way, though it's often a simple delusion that some imaginary thing talks to them and tells them how to live.

Velinde is not saying you can't fall down, he's saying that science is looking at gravity the wrong way. Read the article.

Those who feel secure don't require constant affirmation and validation as you have demonstrated time and again.

The "wrong way?" So then the "right way" is "angels hold things down?"

That's an intersting point. If a person went around claiming that they have an invisible friend that they can communicate with, and that their invisible friend is the final word on justice, morality, and truth, that person would probably be sent to a mental hospital for observation.

And yet, by simply calling himself "Christian", such a person is considered perfectly sane.

Thus why the vast majority of the human population is delusional. ;)

Not just christian, but any religion. Religious belief gets a free pass, and yet they are delusional,

Is worshipping science a perceptible indication that one is sane in your world? Not much difference between an invisble friend and a superhero.

You are engaging in stereotypical thinking. "If one is agin science, one must be fer religion, right?" While such an interpretation may be satisfyingly simple, it's also nonsense and another indication that you are prone to unhinged thinking.
