Gravitational pull is related to rotational speed?

    I found the following posted in another forum:

    He did not cite the source.

    He suggests that this is related to Relativity. I'm no relativity expert but I doubt the authenticity of his claims, especially the part that the rotation of a planet affects its gravitational pull. What do you think?

    It's nonsensical.

    What kind of forum is this? O_O

    As usually, russ is correct, it's complete BS.

    You might want to look into Coriolis effect in relation to Earth's rotation. What you are saying is pure non-sense.
