Will Dark Matter Theorists See the Light?

Some cosmologists are seriously considering dark matter theory to be a blunder.   Will dark matter vanish in the light of evidence and logic? Will it be remembered as a...

The Gravity of the Situation Confounds Physicists

...how galaxies move. Bowler accepts the common belief that dark matter explains the way spiral galaxies can rotate faster than expected, but dark matter alone doesn’t solve the rotation curve...

Cosmologists Reverse Their Dogmas

...that might explain dark matter. Dark matter was first postulated in the 1960s from the study of spiral galaxies. The calculations indicated then that these enormous collections of billions of...

How to Become an Expert in Ignorance

...out. But is this quackery or science? Believers in dark matter think that dark matter, with dark energy, make up 95% of reality. In other words, they continue to believe...

Antimatter Problem Still Defies Natural Explanation

...arisen about the form dark matter takes, with the currently dominant cold dark matter theory predicting that it exists in clumps called halos with small basic units, as opposed to...

Hoping for Light on Dark Matter

...another mystery, the nature of dark matter? Dark matter comprises the majority of matter in the Universe, but its nature remains unknown. Factoring in gravitomagnetism could do away with dark...

Big Bangers Are Making Things Up

...4% of reality by observation. The rest of the universe is made up of completely unknown entities called “dark matter” and “dark energy,” they tell the non-experts (30 Dec 2020)....

2020 Ends with No Dark Matter

...New Hubble Data Explains Missing Dark Matter (NASA-Goddard Space Flight Center). The headline is misleading. Dark matter is still unexplained. What they think they are explaining is why two galaxies...

Cosmology Shrieks in the Dark

Secular cosmologists keep spending more and more money looking for dark matter. So far it’s all trick and no treat. The quest for dark matter is approaching half a century...

Dark Matter Believers Panicking

Antimatter Claim Overblown

...Science Like the dark matter detection efforts, these antimatter detection experiments are very costly and work-intensive. It’s true that physics is more of a ‘hard science’ than evolutionary biology or...

Will Dark Matter Hunters Ever Give Up?
