I am not a student and am simply interested in physics and the like, do studying on my own and just trying to learn about this fascinating subject. While reading or watching videos i get 1000's of questions but i have nobody to ask so i figured id join here.... i hope my questions aren't too stupid lol. Anyways, my question is, so is gravity a FORCE, or is it a cause from an effect? I thought that there was no 'invisible force' called gravity like what has been believed for so long, and that what was actually going on was that things were merely following a straight line through a curved space/time fabric.... which would cause an object to 'attract' to another due to its curving of the fabric. But in the lecture I'm watching, he says that Gravity IS a force, and its message carrier is the Graviton, and that obviously its one of the major forces of our universe. So which one is right or are they both right? I know the space/time fabric is right, but is gravity then still a force?
