No. The work emphasizes some mistakes in the usual textbooks claim that GR isHave you missed the message of juanrga in post #182 where he shared the paper :

FROM GRAVITONS TO GRAVITY: MYTHS AND REALITY

Abstract:

What the above may mean is that any quantum gravity theory that uses spin-2 field can't recreate General Relativity. So it's like a no-go theorem for any field approach to gravity and a yes-go theorem for GR being geometry forever. No?

**fully equivalent**to a massless spin-2 theory, when it is not.

It is possible to derive GR (geometrodynamics) from a field theoretic approach to gravitation, but as an

**geometric approximation**. Somewhat as geometrical optics is an approximation to physical optics based in fields.
