Since one century, Gravitation has been in the spell of Einstein’s Relativity Theory. Although during decades, dozens of scientists have provided evidences for the incorrectness of this theory. And often successfully, but without finding a sympathetic ear. Here we will discover what is wrong with the theory, and what brings a lot of scientists -in spite of that- to not dump it. We will not only discover that the Relativity Theory of Einstein is a tricked variant of the authentic Gravitation Theory, but we will also be able to form an idea about how and why Einstein did this. “Did Einstein Cheat?” is no attack on the person of Einstein, or on its working method. For that the reasons are too few. But it is a beautiful example, in these times, of a too long idolatry of a theory, just like it was the time before Galileo in astronomy and the time before Vesalius in medicine. Most remarkable is that the correct Gravitation Theory is an older theory than the Relativity Theory itself. In “Did Einstein Cheat?” both theories are examined and compared, put in their historical and scientific context, and applied on some essential physical phenomena: the progress of the perihelion of Mercury and the bending of the light close to the sun.
