I have a theory about Gravity that says it's getting stornger over time.

25 years ago I weighed 25 pounds less than I do now, an increase in the pull of Gravity is the only explanation I can come up with.

I agree. Not only that, but everything I pick up has become increasing heavy over time as well. :D

When one browses these forums, one comes across a lot of threads about capacitor replacement (many of which turn tragic). One of the common tests quoted by experienced techs on this forum is that they test old capacitors by dropping them into their trash bucket. If they make a sound upon hitting the bottom of the bucket, then they are bad.

I guess that means that if a capacitor is good, it will counteract the affects of gravity just before it reaches the bottom of the bucket. I wonder if anyone has tried that experiment to see if good capacitors store anti-gravity particles (or is it waves?).

I believe gravity is an invisible force field(from our perception) that's been enacted upon us by whatever entity that wishes us(humans) enslaved to planet earth. Consider it a little like geo fencing. We exist here purely on a need to know basis. 8)

This is apparent.

"It's that gravity is simply a manifestation of inertia and momentum. "

Nope. It isn't. Don't quit your day job.

"At least I have something interesting and positive to contribute."

If by interesting and positive, you mean "wrong" then there you go. Contributing
incorrect science to this site in particular is certainly not positive. Gravity is a complicated
topic and I suggest you research this further.

I don't accept condescension.

If I understand what the OP is suggesting, then at different times of day an object would weigh different amounts. At the point of time the object is on the side of the earth facing away from the center of the universe it would be heaviest. When facing the center of the universe it would float up off the surface basically having "negative" weight. When exactly half way around, it would weigh nothing at all.

Based on the readings on my bathroom scale, I think that's where I want to live

From what I've read, there is no center of the universe.

But what if G, the universal gravitational constant, 6.674×10−11 m3⋅kg−1⋅s−2, hasn't been constant since the beginning of time? Is there any way to prove or disprove whether it has stayed constant?

My feeble understanding is that this is one of the fundamental properties tying together the physics that is understood. Everything that we know about relative motions of celestial bodies ties back to the gravitational constant. I would state the question differently---i.e. why should we suspect that it has changed? Has Coulomb's constant changed? Has the speed of light changed?
