An Argument Against Gravity

Although gravity has remained an accepted theory and (relatively) free from controversy for centuries, one scientist is rocking the boat when it comes to one of our most basic laws of physics.

Theoretical physicist and professor at the University of Amsterdam, Erik Verlinde, recently wrote a paper entitled "On the Origins of Gravity and the Laws of Newton."  In it, Verlinde argues that gravity is merely an illusion. Not surprisingly, this theory has been met with mixed reactions from his fellow scientists.
