    We're gonna have to stop teaching science in schools until they can get it right. A lie is a lie whether it's Noahs Ark or the Big Bang.

    Honestly, dark matter sounds a lot like luminferous aether, which was the only plausible explanation for the wave-like behavior of light, until special relativity made it obsolete.

    This sounds very much like Hawking's hypothesis in A Brief History of Time.

    What lie? Were Newton's Laws of Motion a lie or, as mainstream science would say, the best approximation given the data at hand? Given the vast theoretical basis for the BB, I don't see anyone discarding the theory on one guy's say so. There's going to have to be a lot of discussion and years before it becomes anything like "The New Standard".

    IOW, the Universe is just one big cycle of the Ebb and the Flow and the Ebb and the Flow...which must make God a Finger Poppin' Daddy.

    The Transglobal Underground would did it.
