I had a discussion with my physics teacher about two weeks ago. It went along the lines of the type of science being done nowadays. I presented the example of Dark Matter and Dark Energy. See, the problem with this is that it currently only exists in the minds of researchers. Granted there is math that complements it, but basically it went like this: there is a discrepancy that we can solve by creating a matter and energy that we cant see, measure, or know of. Now, I dont know about you, but that really bad science. Sure, there have been some things discovered in history by this method: simply creating something that should be there in the minds of the researches (then down the line it is verified). But what I find the funniest is how easily dark matter and dark energy was accepted. It might as well be fact... we talk about it in my astronomy class... its mentioned in lecture like a mere scribble. The media has even eaten it up and created video games with "dark matter weapons"... Interestingly, there are other ideas that solve the problem of dark matter at least in part. And Im sure they need to be explored more. However, they dont get nearly the attention that the famed dark matter gets. Take MOND for instance. Modified Newtonian Dynamics. It proposes a mathematical tweak to newtons laws to create solutions through newtons laws of gravitation for large scale objects (more specifically galactic rotation curves). Care to share your opinion?
