Well said. At the point where they should have been bludgeoned into submission they will still likely deny the obvious. After several more decades of denial, they will choose up sides and then determine it to be self evident; they have known it all along.
Now, about that "dark" matter and "dark" energy...
Yeah, dark matter, dark energy, what’s next? The dark force? It’s doing work that we can’t detect!
I kid, but I bet you could write a paper theorizing about a “dark force” and get a nice fat research grant.
Postscript: Just out of curiosity, I googled “Dark Force”, and someone already beat me to it, rats!
Gotta have a dark force to explain that pesky accelerating expansion that we need to explain that pesky red shift anomaly to make it fit into our gravitational model!
