Leave it to astronomers and astrophysicists to jump from one conclusion to another, in the hopes of understanding even a modicum of what they observe. A team of them have made new observations of specific areas in the sky and the conclusion they reached is: dark matter may be smoother than expected. What does that even mean? Nevermind that there has been no proof of any kind that dark matter actually exists; this has not deterred the materialists from further research to show the various properties of dark matter. For example, until now the belief was that dark matter is distributed unevenly throughout the universe, in clumps. Exactly why these clumps would exist in a universe that has randomly and evenly distributed its contents of mass is never explained.
Now comes this new observation which flies directly in the face of previous beliefs. By analyzing the sky differently than the Planck satellite study in the past, researchers “discovered” that the distribution of clumpy matter is a lot less obvious, and actually seems to be distributed evenly. This needs to be taken with several grains of salt, since they are not actually observing any visible matter. Dark matter, if it even exists, is currently undetectable and has been so for the last decade. No instruments have found it, no sensors have picked it up. It is merely inferred by gravitational effects which are theorized using the standard physics model of the universe. These measurements dictate that “something” has to exist out there in order for the equations to work together, otherwise it is unexplainable. The great possibility (and probability, in my opinion) is that both dark matter and dark energy do not exist and we are searching for what isn’t there, wasting time and millions of dollars in the process.
The real questions to answer is why would dark matter (and dark energy, for that matter [pun intended]) have to exist in the first place? They are requirements for the standard model, which is known to be incomplete in some places and insufficient in some conditions. This model is our best guess to date, yet we are loathe to discard it when things don’t make sense. Instead of reformulating the standard model, the materialists are quick to conjure up ad hoc rescue devices. Neither of these phenomena have ever been observed, not with the finest and most sensitive instruments to date.
It is disappointing to know that no matter what observations researchers continue to make, which clearly contradict previous understanding, the march of the Big Bang model must go on undeterred. No one questions whether or not it happened. In light of the most recent findings, the researchers’ commented:
Our findings will help to refine our theoretical models of how the Universe has grown from its inception up to the present day.
Refining the theoretical models is their best hope, since it is a never-ending endeavor which continually requires research funds. Replacing the models is untenable; careers were built on them, which would come crashing down if they turned out to be useless. Materialists have a lot more in common with politicians than they’d care to admit, and we have more of both than we could possibly need.
