My philosophical prejudices lead me to believe that the necessity of dark matter/energy implies a shortcoming in our understanding of gravity.

Clearly, there are shortcomings at the quantum scale, but this is another matter entirely.

I ran across an article on physicsweb where a scientist proposes a test for a MOND theory.

Point of the thread:

1) Does anyone share this philosophical prejudice?

2) What are your educated opinions on MOND theories?
