I mean absurd 'to common sense'. As Feynman said 'nobody understands quantum mechanics'. If you like, remove 'absurd' and replace with 'bizarre'.

I have actually never studied general relativity so I can't comment, but special relativity is very much bizaree to our common sense, so I assumed GR was too, given SR is only a special case.

All I'm saying is that with such counter-intuitive theories, science was the only way to arrive at them.
