Let me ask what the deficit is in a GR description of the solar system?
Considering that GR is probably the most accurately verified theory as far
as predictions are concerned, exactly what is the evidence that it doesn't
fit reality? Is there empirical mis-fits between GR and observation?

Reminds me of a cabbie upon whose jury I sat. He was protesting a speeding
ticket. The cop testified that the cab went from zero to 60 mph in 100
feet. While no one else on the jury understood what I was saying, I know the
cabbie didn't drive a dragster or a 737! Through my influence the jury let
him go.
