You don't consider Newton's "Law of Gravitation" to be a formal theory? How
much more formal can you get than defining space and time and mass and
force then relating them all with

[image: F = G \frac{m_1 m_2}{r^2}\]

I'm guessing you mean something different by a "formal theory" to what I
would understand by that phrase.

When I ask Edgar for a formal theory I'd be delighted to get something like
Newton's law of gravitation rather than a load of hand waving verbiage.
