Yes, newtonian gravity doesn't work with relativity - thats because newtonian gravity is *wrong*.

We've known that for a long time.

Newtonian gravity cannot explain the precession of mercury, among many other things. Can you? The answer requires relativity.

Newtonian gravity is only used for cases where it approximates the answer from relativity, because its easier to work with, but to accurately predict real observations you must use relativity.

You can cry "Newtonian gravity has instantaneous gravity!!!!!" all you like. It does. The problem is it doesn't work!.

Newtonian gravity cannot accurately describe the universe we see. It was a good approximation from what we knew at the time of newton, but its just that, an approximation. One that breaks if you take it too far.

The fact that you continue to cling to it just shows how ignorant of everything you are. Newton would slap you around, were he here. He was the first to model gravity, with limited knowledge. Its not perfect, Newton didn't expect it to be perfect, and only someone who is willfully ignorant of all physics advances would think it was.
