Eclipse 1919 and the General Relativity Theory
If Einstein's theory of general relativity was correct, then the light from stars that passed closest to the sun would show the greatest degree of bending, and the stars whose light tracks are very far from the sun have their lights not being bent or deflected. The stars whose lights are not deflected means that there is no difference between the apparent position and the true position of the stars.
If being consistent with this theory, it means that all stars visible at night time are at the appearance of the stars on their true positions, because the said stars do not pass through the field of gravity. This is certainly incorrect if it is seen from the astronomical scientific point of view. The stars in the sky at night time and seen by the observers, all are stars on apparent positions, not on their true positions.
If a scientist conveys a theory and at the same time shows its proving method, however after being tested by another scientist it is found out that his proposed proving method is proven to be unable to be performed due to not being scientific, then automatically such proposed theory prematurely falls by itself. The proving cannot be carried out by other methods not as requested by the theory founder, since it is reasonably assumed that such proving is made based on belief.
