    This is not his argument, this is really just basic facts about mechanics and relativity that anyone that has more than just a superficial acquaintance with relativity should know IMO.
    Let's look at the laws of motion of one the most accurate theories to date, GR, you'll have to concede that e.o.m. are derived precisely from the defining equations for time and distance of the theory: the EFE. Why would you have problems seing the parallelism with Newton's laws or SR?
