If any tangible results were reached in the past regarding Gravity, it was almost never due to a calculus out of General Relativity (GR) itself, but always from either a Minkowsky metric, a Schwarzschild metric, a Kerr metric, or from Gravitomagnetism. The above metrics are generally presented as if they were equivalent to General Relativity within some restrictions or simplifications. Moreover, they are allegedly deduced from GR. However, in this paper we recall that these claims are false. The Minkowsky metric is but a generalisation of the Special Relativity; the Schwarzschild metric is only a partial solution of GR while another crucial part has been neglected and even anihilates the metric, and the Kerr metric is nothing but a extension of this Schwarzschild metric with a rotational term that has nothing to do with GR. Gravitomagnetism is pretended to be 'deduced' from GR, but in fact it only has a vague resemblance with the Newtonian gravity for oblate speroids, and it also resemble a bit a Schwarzscild metric, without any true link at all.
It must be concluded that there is no correct result whatsoever regarding GR, neither as a whole, nor in detail. On the other hand, Gravitomagnetism is in fact an independent theory that successfully replaces the weak GR results. Gravitomagnetism apports proven results by the Gravity Probe B and by the Lunar Laser Ranging experiment, and it solves a multitude of celestial issues.
