    i read in scientific american that in newton's theory of gravity the speed of gravity was proposed to be infinite.
    my question isnt this implying that the distance and/or time are also infinite (if so, doesnt it defie newton's theory[and thus contradict itself]?)?

    Infinite speed of gravity is fine with Newton, it only runs in to trouble with Einstein.
