I clothe the heavens with blackness, and I make sackcloth their covering.(Isaiah 50:3) KJV
There’s no evidence for dark matter. It’s a placeholder term for a gap in the knowledge base of the popular science narrative of godless existence (SciPop). It’s a contrivance.
Dark matter is a fictional contrivance necessary to account for the gravitational interaction provided by the firmament, otherwise know as the missing 90% of the mass of the universe. It has been validated using the Hawking effect.– Dark Matter, definition
In contrast the Bible describes the firmament as a sphere of rigid crystal on the edge of space. From above it shines brightly, from below it can’t be seen. In Matty’s Paradigm this is 90% of the mass of the universe. It prevents the stars from falling into a mass. It’s presence was speculated on by Sir Isaac Newton.
It is a property of rest, that bodies really at rest do rest in respect to one another. And therefore as it is possible, that in the remote regions of the fixed stars, or perhaps far beyond them, there may be some body absolutely at rest; but impossible to know, from the position of bodies to one another in our regions whether any of these do keep the same position to that remote body; it follows that absolute rest cannot be determined from the position of bodies in our regions.– Sir Isaac Newton, Principia Mathematica p. 85
The firmament has been detected and is reported in the SciPop media as “a brightly shining wall on the edge of space.” As you may well imagine, the significance of this discovery has been buried in SciPop mumbo-jumbo.
Here’s three examples of breathless, giddy reporting on SciPop’s failure to understand the significance of cosmic discoveries.
If you ever find yourself witnessing to or evangelizing someone who accuses you of worshiping a “god of the gaps,” you may want to mention the biggest gap of them all: dark matter.
