Re: Too early to tell.

"we call this process "science"."

Except saying "a wizard did it!" is not exactly science - and for all intents and purposes dark matter and energy are pretty much the equivalent of that. Something that we basically seem to know nothing at all about, introduced arbitrarily solely to handwave a problem away. And _IF_ that is not so, then I have to say scientists did a piss-poor job of communicating to the rest of us why those concepts might make perfectly good sense for a large number of different reasons that seem to support each other, if such a thing exists. Because otherwise it sure as hell looks like all that dark stuff is just "something we made up to make 1+1 = -5 work even though it doesn't"...
