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!

Dark force??? We've got all we can deal with in the White Hut.

I may not have made my point very well. What I was saying is the material that makes up most of the universe, being labeled dark matter and dark energy, is still a complete mystery to the Scientific Community™. They can't see it or measure it but they can apparently detect its GRAVITATIONAL effects. Since they aren't sure just how gravity works, it's an interesting conundrum and appears to this layman, a circular argument.

There are some researchers(mainstream or otherwise) out there attempting to determine if this so called dark matter and dark energy may in fact be plasma. One of the theories being we don't have the instruments yet capable of detecting it.

In any case, I don't hold out much hope for this bunch since they apparently haven't developed instruments yet capable of detecting a REALLY big flood in the not too distant past either.
