I have splitted what is below from this thread and named it based on the following quote:

I see, here is your Cosmoquest thread.

My first objection is that your vixra paper does not really define a theory of gravity. At least not one comparable to the usual way to define theories of gravity, since the Newtonian times.

Say, you have a satellite flying around, in the gravitational field created by Sun, Earth, Moon, and all the other planets. It is located at a particular position (x,y,z), has a particular velocity \((v_x,v_y,v_z)\) at that moment. Newtonian theory defines an equation which allows to compute the whole future trajectory of the satellite. I have not seen a similar equation in your paper.

We know, today, that the gravitational field also influences the clocks. Clocks in a strong gravitational field go slower. But if the clock moves faster, is will be also slower. A modern theory of gravity should be able to compute this time dilation. I have not seen any formula for this.

It's kinda long at about 80 pages, but to get an overview of what I'm on about, one could review my "Against the Mainstream" thread at Cosmoquest. The title is "A sink-flow aether model of gravity." I think it's on page 4 at this point.
