Crackpot Behavior of the Yark Theory of Gravitation

Authors: Christian Corda

Despite it is well known at the elementary level of university courses that completely non-metric gravitational theories macroscopically violate Einstein's equivalence principle, in a series of recent papers published also in Canadian Journal of Physics, T. Yarman and collaborators claimed that the so-called YARK theory of gravitation (the name has been self-created by T. Yarman and collaborators from the initials of their proper surnames), which is completely non-metric, should replace Einstein's general theory of relativity as the correct theory of gravitation. Here we ultimately show the crackpot behavior of the YARK theory of gravitation by using Einstein's equivalence principle which has today a strong, unchallengeable empiric evidence. Hence, we formally request the Editors of Canadian Journal of Physics to ultimately withdraw the papers of T. Yarman and collaborators for the sake of scientific correctness. In addition, we formally request the Editors of Canadian Journal of Physics to ultimately stop the publication of other papers on the unscientific and non-viable YARK theory of gravitation.
