"I love how people think dark matter and dark energy have something to do with each other just because they are both labeled as dark properties of the cosmos. They don't. And as for dark matter, dismissing it is just as stupid as denying evolution. All possible outcomes must be at worst ignored until disproven. Dismissing something based on intuition is a human flaw science cannot afford. And also dark matter is a term we made up when not discovering enough baryonic mass to account for the gravitational forces we observe. That means You can dismiss the idea of dark matter being WIMPS we havent discovered yet, but not the idea of dark matter itself. It's a concept not a definition."
