We all know that the geometrical foundations of general relativity follow riemann's geometry and not the euclidean one.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

About 3 months ago a lebanese mathmaticien claimed that he proved the 5th postulate of the euclidean geometry (about the parallel theorem) which is still with no proof... anyway he published a book (in french) in which he says that this proof implies that all other 2 geometries are wrong (including riemann's) and that it will affect general relativity..

you can check some stuff about him just search his name ( Rachid Matta) in google..

i don't know a lot about geometry stuff but do you think that his work is importent or that he is just some fool who wants to prove that einstein's work is wrong??
