I have no quantitative understanding of current cosmology, so go easy. The intent of this post is to promote civil debate, not critisize current science. So basically, I look at astrophysicists and I think of them as saying "oh, because there are observations we don't understand, there MUST be a mysterious, magical substance leading to these behaviors". IE, I'm thinking that dark matter/energy is a cop out. To my understanding, with our current technology, this theory isn't really even falsifiable. Now, can someone with more knowledge than me (that's basically everyone on this forum), correct me if I am wrong?
