Dark Matter Is Crap

there's no dark matter. so called modern physics is a pile of bullshit it's somewhat similar to banking, where everyone is leveraged so much that any disturbance blows up all world financial system. modern physics is much worse than that. while we were studying what's around us, we were like old depositary institutions, stable and solid.once we started making assumptions about entire universe based what we see under our noses on Earth, we got into this LTCM-like operation. any little deivation in anything will move age of Universe by billions of years. it's stupid. we can't study Universe, it's too fucking big

Dark matter+Dark energy = 95% of the energy of the universe. Would be nice to understand what are the 95% of the Universe we are missing don't you think ?

Trackstar would be happy Space-time curvature due to quantum vacuum fluctuations, an alternative to dark energy?

the thread is too long to read it through. does its title reflect the latest findings in astrophysics and string super symmetry theories? it's the crap that's flying in outer space and screwing up their theories?

Dark matter and dark energy are one of the challenge of astrophysics and cosmology nowadays. It's partially linked to the famous cosmological constant which makes the Universe growing if I remember well. A lot of people are trying to link this "dark energy" to the energy of the quantuum vacuum.As in superstring theory, gravity quantum loops or spin foam models I would say that I don't understand fully the model. A bit too high level and specialized for me.

You're so in trouble now young lady!This is precisely what I am talking about!! Mentioning *dark matter* seem to have a very unpredictable effect on people

Archival Pick of the Day!Original Post:QuoteOriginally posted by: PaperCutDark matter - massive yet undetectable, untestable, unproveable. It must exist, because otherwise Newton's equations don't work for really big things (galaxies, et cetera).Is it me? You can't just make up a bunch of untestable crap just to fit the data. This is exactly what they did with the "Ether Wind," more nonsense to try to explain the propagation of light. Now we know better, and the Ether is laughable.Look at it this way: Newton works on ordinary things that we are all familiar with - rockets, baseball trajectories and other macroscopic issues. When you get down to Really Small Things, guess what happens? Newton doesn't work for electrons and their interactions with one another and their nuclei. So? What's the solution? Quantum mechanics - a different set of equations that explains the funny (non-Newtonian) behavior you get. Is there a bridge between these two extremes? Sure. It's called Statistical Mechanics. Fine - all is well.Given that scales of measurement are culpable when it comes to scientific explanations ( or lack thereof), then why do people seem to have a problem believing that we simply need a new set of equations (a Theory) to give explanation to unexpected behavior of Really Big Things?What is more bizarre is that a NYU researcher, Georgi Dvali, has decided that maybe this Dark Matter thing is all wet and his primary tool to suggest an alternative view is - that's right - String Theory. The other Big Fat Untestable Unprovable Bunch of Crap. cf:Crapski.

Higgs is really, really necessary if this whole "gravity" thing is going to pan out, right? You bet your bottom dollar if they want it that bad they will find it.Funny how the same people who really need Higgs (and decaying protons, LOL) are also apologists for fiat money. Decaying proton, decaying savings. Grinding decay leading to shiteI don't suppose there is any...money involved in all this? Hmm.One "ad hoc" band aid on top of another. What a laff. (By the way, let's bring back the ether wind, because it lends credence to...get this..dark matter! LOL)

A physicist thinks reality is an approximation to equations. A mathematician doesn't care. And I wonder who pays for all this blue sky stuff?
