Many of our observations do not match the math. Scientists invent 'dark matter' and 'dark energy, objects we cannot detect, to make the math work.


I don't know if I can take all your science-bashing <g>

This is all true. But GR has been confirmed by numerous test over the past decades, many of them by observing light from distant stars. Can GR ultimately prove inadequate, and be abandoned by science as "The" explanation? Sure, just like neo-Darwinism could for biological variation.

I kind of like the dark matter concept. You can see it too in evolutionary theory, where you have "dark natural selection", the kind that gets you from micro to macro changes. <G>
