This question already has an answer here:

So I was seeing this documentary and ended up knowing that there is no such thing as gravity. It said that we are not being pulled by Earth but being pushed by the space time curvature acc. to general theory of relativity. I am really confused right now.

Are we being pulled by Earth or being pushed towards Earth?

  • $\begingroup$ This question is too vague as it stands. What documentary? Best advice: Switch to a different channel, switch to anything else when you see a documentary filled with physics woo. Of course there's such a thing as gravity. $\endgroup$ – David Hammen Oct 6 '15 at 4:51
