Hey dumbass, you are feeding a troll. His post is hateful and stupid. You shouldn't support such stupid people. Either that or you're trolling yourself in an attempt destroy this site. Either way, you need to be banned, and I will do everything in my power to make sure that happens.

I assume you've had a change of heart as I don't seem to be banned yet? In any case, thanks for letting me continue. I do appreciate it.

Dark matter is just one of two reasonable hypotheses. At the moment, it's safe to say that it's probably the more likely of the two. Modified gravity struggles to explain the bullet cluster, for example, whereas cold dark matter provides a compelling explanation. This is ultimately a scientific question that will be settled by evidence and logic.

Wrong. Galactic rotation curves do not match with what is predicted by Newton or Einstein. The outer stars are orbiting much too fast. You either explain it with hidden matter, or you explain it by modifying gravity. The the fact in this case is the anomalous rotation rates. I suggest you need to look again into what 'actual' scientists do, because what they don't do is ignore interesting observations.

In 1750 Issac Newton became discouraged when he fell up a flight of stairs.
