Considering that space is not curved or warped (as some pop books will falsely lead you to believe) why is that Euclidean Geometry is not true in the real world?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I mean light bends in space because it falls in a gravitational field like everything else (because it has energy which is equivalent to mass), why choose them to draw straight lines when we know they wont travel in a straight line if they have a huge mass near them, if i imagine straight lines and a triangle in space i dont see any reason to think that the sum of their internal angles will not be 180.

i mean i dont make triangles on earth by throwing baseballs in the sky.
