What does this statement mean? I don't know how you can rule out a particular non-Euclidian geometry (which this clearly is) as being not a "true" non-Euclidian geometry. It's not one that we would expect to exist physically, but there's nothing wrong with it.
Light travels along geodesics. They only appear "curved" if you imagine that they're travelling in a Euclidian 3-space
Ahhh, he wasn't able to show mind-bending impossible geometry on a reality-based computer, but rather an approximation of it. Wow, this guy must be reading this thread literally sobbing saying "jesus... jesus delmoi, you've destroyed me." I can't even say how thankful I am that you were here to post literal paragraphs about how wrong this guy was...
If you want to stick with the math definition, no we don't, we live in a universe that has a complex curvature shaped by the matter in it. And, on the flip side, on the gigaparsec scale we have no evidence that the universe as a whole is anything other than flat.
