Indeed, where is the push-away law of gravity, that puts a perturbed
planet BACK into its safe distance from the Sun, once it has been
perturbed closer in to the Sun.  Math formulas were evolved to in a mode
where they were tweaked until they WORKED, and when they no longer
worked, tweaked again with different factor until they worked again.
Newton went up to a mountain top and came down with the Inverse Square
law written on a tablet?  He tried variations, and tweaked it, and
mulled it over a lot, no doubt.  But now, we're supposed to put that
process aside, when it is shown that a "law" no longer applies
perfectly!  Why?  As the Zetas have said, Newton has become a god, and
I'm swearing in church here, apparently.  It's a religion!  Don't
question, just obey!

Elaborate mathematical descriptions of trajectories and orbits
were drawn up in an age when man had not peeked beyond the
Solar System with high powered telescopes floating above the
atmosphere ... The only complete orbits known were those of
the planets which hugged the Sun, and as the math was drawn
up to fit these orbits, the orbits fit the math. ... As concepts tend
to solidify as time passes, the young taking as absolutes what
their elders preach, the Earth was now no longer flat, and the
heavens no long revolved around the Earth, but most certainly
all orbits were elliptical. ... Man sees the dance of stars, but
there are so many variables that come into play, about which
he is uncertain at best, that the arrows of doubt seldom get
launched. Yet the arrows exists.
