Dark Matter does not exist!

Dark Matter may not exist I tend to agree, see what you think.

E=mc. Matter ≈ energy so really, saying it isn't dark matter, it is dark energy isn't that radical.

Energy is actually directly proportional to mass. In classical physics, we define a change in energy as work. Mathematically, Work = Force X Distance.

Since Force = mass x acceleration, you can see the direct correlation between mass and energy.

Specifically, a change in Energy is Work. Therefore, Work = mass X acceleration X distance.

Yes, I am a physics teacher.

That's what E = mc says with c being the proportionality constant.

The article doesn't say a great deal about dark energy and dark matter, except that they were proposed as different forces to explain some of the quirks otherwise unexplained:

Dark Matter- proposed to explain why material of galaxies rotates in unison and doesn't fly apart.

Dark Energy- created to explain why measurements of red shift of distant objects indicating they are accelerating and not slowing down.

The research in that article mostly contends that we're making the mistake again of assuming gravity functions the same at the large inter-galactic scale as it does on the local level of "middle dimensions" where we live and go about our lives. Could be true...I don't know...I'll just wait for the next rebuttal from the dark matter crowd.

It's possible also that dark energy doesn't actually exist either, since that is also a placeholder intended to explain why the universe isn't expanding as we would assume. A few years back, I recall seeing an interview with a theoretical physicist from the Republic of Georgia, who (following the rules of string theory that was very popular at the time) that, since gravitons are closed-loop strings and therefore not bound to our or any other universe, gravitons start 'leaking' out of our universe if attracted and pulled into another nearby universe...so less dense parts of our universe lose gravity and start moving faster.

Who knows...it all makes interesting reading, but who knows if and when somebody can figure it all out!
