If you can put forth a substantial body of experimental data to show that equations of motion in curved spaces can be found using the Minkowski metric, I'd accept that as a fact.
If I could do that, we wouldn't be having this conversation, because you'd be reading about it in a newspaper and I'd be filthy rich.
I doubt that coming up with a replacement for GR would make anyone filthy rich. You might get tenure in a respectable university.

I'd suggest working on a way to make all the molecules in a hostess's undergarments leap simultaneously one foot to the left. You might even come up with the infinite improbability drive, but beware of the rampaging mob of respectable physicists who realize that the one thing they can't stand is a smart-ass.

ETA: Ripped off Douglas Adams, of course.
