Re: Too early to tell.
And Pauli postulated the existence of neutrinos so the equations would fit even though he thought we would never be able to detect them
And yet, we now have neutrino detectors.
So, now they are postulating the existence of something called 'dark matter' and 'dark energy' to make things fit, and, certainly, they may end up going the way of Phlogiston or Aether, but then, we may also end up detecting them.
As Einstein said: If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?
As for scientists not explaining clearly, well, I am nothing but a lowly engineer, and yet I am used to getting blank stare from mundanes when I try to explain something technical, so?
