No, what is happening here is observations, dark matter/energy, are made up to fit the hypothesis.
Nope. No-one is claiming to have observed dark matter. We have observed the effects

Is this an example of a well-read person such as yourself pretty much knowing everything required to form a well-informed opinion?
