Is it justified to state that GR is "just" a geometrical theory to calculate the paths of objects in spacetime?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Just because GR states that "gravity is a property of spacetime itself" doesn't necessary mean that spacetime is curved; just that the paths of objects in spacetime are curved in a gravitational field.

What I'm after is that as we all know, GR is just an approximation of the yet-to-be-discovered quantum theory of gravity, which might not deal with the "geometry of spacetime" at all.
