Does Gravity Exist?

Suppose we assume that the root law of the physical universe is a law of the conservation of angular momentum - that the total angular momentum in the cosmos, both orbital and spin, is constant. Orbital angular momentum is mass x velocity x radius, assuming ideal circular motion.

L=m*v*r

A straight line is a circle of infinite radius. Newton's first law of motion "Every body perseveres in its state of being at rest or of moving uniformly straight forward, except in so far as it is compelled to change its state by forces impressed." now reads

"Every body perseveres in its state of being at rest or of "Every body perseveres in its state of being at rest of infinite angular momentum, except in so far as it is compelled to change its state by forces impressed." 

This is of course absurd. But Newton's law has in no way been changed. Just its absurdity has been brought out. I can only assume that at Newton's time the fixed stars were seen to be at rest and he did not know that they kept orbits. Angular momentum is always a relation between masses and does not view each to be an independent existent. Rather the whole alone exists. You have to orbit something.

Gravity contradicts Newton's law! It is not an impressed force but is supposed to work in a vacuum at a distance. It is tantamount to witchcraft.

Once the Pioneer probes leave our Solar System behind they always veer slightly but unexpectedly toward the sun. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pioneer_anomaly Their trajectories were calculated using Newtonian mechanics. In other words the theory is wrong. http://www.poams.org/three-examples-for-logical-revision/
